Michigan: Mackinaw and “The Bridge”.

Mackinaw Michigan lies on the uppermost tip of Michigan. It is the gateway to the Upper Peninsula and Mackinac Island.

Mackinac Light House

The light House makes for a safe journey for ships navigating the treacherous waters off the coast in Lake Huron as water flows into it from Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.

Mackinac Bridge

A sight not often seen, the undercarriage of the Mackinac Bridge.

Opened in 1957, the 26,372-foot bridge (familiarly known as “Big Mac” and “Mighty Mac“)[is the world’s  nineteenth longest main span and the longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the Western Hemisphere

During summers, the Upper Peninsula and the Mackinac Bridge have become a major tourist destination. In addition to visitors to Mackinac Island, the bridge has attracted interest from a diverse group of tourists including bridge enthusiasts, bird-watchers, and photographers.

The open field adjacent to the bridge is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the view.


Ezekial Solomon was reportedly the first Jewish settler in the state of Michigan.


The fur trade played an important part in the early settlement of Michigan.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
