A Michigan Polaroid Journal


In the Summer when the air is hot and humid my thoughts turn North in hopes of cooler temperatures and the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. This year I attempted to keep a little Polaroid journal of interesting things I saw while I was there. I like photos of shopping carts in a Conga Line ready to break out in dance. This is inspired by a photograph by Carl Root and I think about his photos every time I see carts lined up in a row like this.

Had to stop for this shot of a Morris Minor with the steering wheel on the right side. It’s parked by the Jewelry store in Lakeside.

Going to Michigan is really about the lake and the different moods created by the sun, wind and waves. The days are long and lazy but the week always seems to end too soon.
