Copper Country {Random}

Jul 26, 2011

A few weeks back, Patrick and I¬†traveled to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to attend my cousin’s wedding. And if 9 years of being together has taught me anything, it’s that Patrick can’t go anywhere without getting into trouble… ūüėȬ†Don’t worry –¬†¬†not real trouble¬†– he just likes to take the road less traveled. So a few of us set off¬†down that road with cameras in hand and wound up at¬†an old copper mine near my grandma’s house. And old is definitely the right word for it. My great grandpa – also a photographer – actually photographed the same mine (as well as the No. 6 shaft house that USED to reside next to it, but burned down in 1956) decades earlier with film!. You know, the stuff we used back¬†before digital photography¬†made this artform more cost effective.¬†I just¬†wish I could share these photos with him and¬†hear¬†about how¬†the mine used to look – maybe even enjoy a day in his old darkroom. I feel like¬†he would have really enjoyed that – I know I would.

Beautiful sunset over the Portage Canal from my grandparent’s beach.
