Photographers recently had the opportunity to visit the historic Glensheen Mansion in Duluth for a photo meet.  The mansion was decorated with twenty-five Christmas trees, twenty-five hidden elves and much more Holiday trim.  As much as all the bright lights and ornaments were appealing, I found a display cabinet with these serving pieces on exhibit just as interesting.  I chose to isolate focus on the cup design and let the other objects serve as the framing.

Searching

I’m not sure what he was searching for, but he was very focused on rummaging through the debris left by the October storm.

I’ve been walking past a particular set of windows that reflect the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth for too long without capturing an image.  Today I made a trip to do just that.  After cropping to eliminate the window frame, tweaking a bit in Lightroom, I exported to Silver Efex Pro 2 for the finishing conversion.  Finally, I spun it around a few times and hung it out to dry.

Superior’s Wrath

When Gitche Gummi gets her undies in a bunch, you need to give her a wide berth.  Today’s (Oct. 10) high winds once again stirred up the “Big Lake” and she put on a show for those brave or foolish enough to venture near for a closer look.  Waves were reported to be as high as 28 feet and much damage was done to the beaches and lakewalk. I also learned today that my current rain gear is not up to the task of these conditions and I need to carry more towels for keeping lenses dry.  Ultimately I could not keep up with the spray and had to quit.   I was totally soaked through my rain gear and all my camera gear needed to be dried out. Even with all that, it was, as always, an exhilarating experience.
