Thursday Night Photoblogging

Northport Point, Michigan, from the air.

This is actually a photo of a photo. What looks like a reflection of the sun off the windshield of the airplane and the waters of Grand Traverse Bay is actually the flash of my camera as I took this shot of a picture that hangs in my office at home. The original picture was taken in 1959; I can tell by the water level. Lake Michigan was at one of its historic low levels that year. That was also the summer our family started spending summers up there, and I spent at least three weeks there every July or August from then until 1975. I learned to sail, swim, play tennis and golf, and do whatever else it is that kids do at the lakeshore in the summertime. Happy memories.
