Houghton MI
If you’ve never been to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, you really need to make the trip. It’s another world up there, a trip back in time. I took this in Houghton a few years ago with my film camera on an overcast day.

Some of my ancestry is from Cornwall, UK and were miners. One of the things I found fascinating about the U.P. was all of the mining history. This coming summer I plan on spending some mega time up there taking photos.

    I found the bottom photo wonderfully evocative. I lived in Houghton some 60 years ago and my memory is faded, to say the least.

    This is beautiful. I would love information on how to purchase this work and other like it.
    Thank you for your art!

    This was the view from my dorm room. The Keweenaw is one of the best places in Michigan.
