Visiting my youngest daughter, Madeline, in addition to my two grandsons for the holiday. Madeline is a senior at University of Michigan within the Gerald Ford School of Public Policy, She has been in a legislative internship in Washington DC most of this year and has two weeks to go until she returns to Ann Arbor for her last semester before graduation. Seems to have flown by. The boys posed for some black and white shots with the Hasselblad today and I will try my luck with them again tomorrow Getting Nolan not to make a goofy smile is a challenge. I went to Niles this morning to photograph in a local cemetery I used to work in. I wanted to reshoot an old crypt that has been there since the 1800’s, but had to shoot at a different angle, as they put up a sign describing the historical significance of the building, which was apparently cold storage for bodies in the winter, when the ground could not be dug for graves (no heavy equipment in the 1800’s). Of course, the sign was in the way of the best composition.
