The General

These are friends here as we were helping my buddy Brent, second from right, put up a fence in his back yard. The 2-person hole digger on the right there, operated by Brent and his father, is the Honda 330- the General. It was the subject of some smirks of amazement by those who weren't operating it, and the object of utmost respect by those who were. Once fired up, the General just wanted to dig. From a spectators point of view, the only thing keeping it from boring a hole to China were the four handles and two people using them and even then a hole to China didn't fully seem out of the question. A shout of "DOWN!," then a shout of "UP!," and then the post. I'm returning this morning to help with round 2. I like it, it reminds me my childhood when my Dad would have people over to help with building our garage. Family and friends helping one another. Like pioneers, except we have the Honda 330 hole digger- the General.

Harbor Springs

This is Harbor Springs which is a wonderful small town on the Little Traverse Bay. Look at that view.

This mouse showed itself while my step dad and I were cleaning out a trailer and disturbed a family (or friends) of its kind taking residence in a rusty car rotor.

Meeting at Tracks

So much about this scene appealed to me when I took the photo. Small towns have such a distinct photographic quality. The big grain mill is unique and the "save the mill" sign adds to it. A green shirt is being worn and some green carnival-ride tracks are visible on the left of the frame with green grass on the right. Then there's the kids, one on his mode of transportation, the bmx bike, meeting with another kid along the train tracks. It's Americana.

Rock Tower

There's a strong theme of Lake Michigan-themed images lately. It's where I often find myself, especially this time of year, due to the dwindling amount of days left to enjoy Lake Michigan's beaches. This is my cousin Adam making a rock tower.
