Michigan:Sturgeon Point

 

Sturgeon Point Lighthouse is located north of Alpena and about five miles north of Harrisville.
The light still works and is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Made of brick masonry on an ashlar limestone foundation, the light station was built in 1869 by the United States Light House Board. The Board was in the midst of a lighthouse building boom on the Great Lakes due to increased maritime traffic, during which time, hundreds of such light houses were built.

Today, while still in operation, it is one of the most visited sites in northern 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.

Nature Is Sacred

The aborigines of Australia believe:

All nature is sacred, but in creation place, spirit power manifests more readily, these are places where great events of creation took place. Members of a group share a common totem, and each individual has a totem.

There is no better learning than life learning, knowledge is not important it’s how you feel about it.

Today that would be called child abuse. What an opportunity the kids of today miss by not learning proper work ethics at an early age.

Being An Aborigine

The aborigines of Australia, an interesting culture

 

Many areas of the Aboriginal way of life is misunderstood.

Being an aborigine is a way of life or religion, more than a race, anyone can adapt the ways of the aborigine and become an aborigine.

The true aborigine is Caucasian. when some of them took their shirt off, their chests were white. They are dark because they have lived in the sun for thousands of years.
