A very long day with more driving time than behind the lens, but nonetheless, productive. Left at 3:30 A.M. for the Garden Peninsula and arrived at the ghost community of Fayette on Lake Michigan at 8:30 A.M. Worked until 1:30 and arrived back at Rauhallinen Farm at 6:30 P.M. 285 exposures and a few dozen videos to post-process ( most in HDR-high dynamic range). A plethora of architechure from this 149 year old village (and State Park) on Lake Michigan that manufactured charcoal pig iron between 1867 and 1891.
I will begin the process of producing a videography project of this trip tomorrow. Gave thought to the soundtrack on the way home, but am yet undecided. Leaning towards a favorite George Winston pianoscape.
"And so you haunt me. Always with me, you are the invisible diner at our table, the constant presence that trails me as I go about my daily routine....In the darkness of a closed-lidded world, you are alive and vital, unchanging, mine. You are the ghost of everything that once was lovely...a shadow casts its majesty over everything that remains...."
