Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Bessemer, MI – 4th of July and other Oddities ;-)

Anne and I visited her parents in Bessemer, MI for the 4th of July.  They live about 20 minutes from Lake Superior and Black River Harbor.


In Bessemer, they used to shoot the fireworks from right in the field where everyone sits.  The fireworks would explode right above the crowd, and for many years everyone thought that this was best way to do fireworks.  Then one 4th of July, a firework malfunctioned and went into the crowd and exploded, hurting many of the town’s residents.  Now they shoot the fireworks from off the bluff, where is it much safer.


Wally is legendary as the best roofer in the Bessemer, MI area!  He also drives a really cool truck.  In the winter he builds beautiful all-wood canoes.  He said that building canoes keeps him from going crazy.


Hiking around Presque Isle

Minnesota Mel is known in these parts for the elaborate custom building projects he does, and his nearly encyclopedic knowledge of traditional Scandinavian music.  You’ve got to wonder about a man who brings his accordian, and a few warm Schmitts to his current project which is a sauna/outhouse.  That’s right, one building that contains both a composting toilet, and a sauna.  I bet you don’t have one of those.
