I neglected to take the unusually warm Fall weather as a factor in keeping tourists in the area. The Sturgeon River Gorge, a favorite place to photograph (billed as Michigan's version of the grand canyon) was crawling with leaf peepers. If it would be close to home, I would have left and gone to a more secluded area, but the drive is near two hours one way, so I stuck it out and ended up shooting a couple of Polaroid SX-70 shots, in addition to about eight 4x5 exposures, both with the Chamonix 45N-2 and Pinhole camera. Warm enough that the fly and mosquito population thought it was an early Spring. It will end on Monday when the high temperatures with be in the low 40's. It will be the week to start the Central Wood Boiler for her seven to eight month season in the Northwoods. Enjoy your Sunday.
“It is a cruel, ironical art, photography.
