Hanging Out with the Seagulls Near Lake Michigan

Earlier this year, my wife and I drove up to South Haven, Michigan to watch a Lake Michigan sunset. While the sunset left a lot to be desired, we did find the seagulls quite entertaining.

Wilson’s Sandwich Shop, Findlay, Ohio

Wilson’s Sandwich Shop, located at 600 South Main Street in downtown Findlay, Ohio, is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in Findlay and have a craving for a hamburger. While Wilson’s burgers certainly don’t  quite measure to those served up at nearby Alexandria’s Gastropub, there’s something familiar and comforting about a Wilson’s sandwich.  Established in 1936, little has changed at Wilson’s since my high school days in the 1970s. And that’s fine with me. I enjoy eating at  Wilson’s because I don’t have to think about what I want to order. Hamburger, please, with ketchup, mustard, onion, and pickle.

The next time you find yourself hungry as you travel along I-75 near Findlay, Ohio, exit and make your way downtown to Wilson’s Yes, you will pass Wendy’s and McDonald’s, and a host of other fast food restaurants, but leave them for another day and eat at Findlay’s oldest sandwich shop.

Youth Baseball in Northwest Ohio

youth baseball 9u 2017 (7)

During the late spring and summer months, I have numerous opportunities to take photographs at youth baseball and softball games. My grandchildren are of the age that they are now trying their hands at sports, so as a photographer and a proud grandfather, I often find myself on the third or first base lines, camera in hand. From time to time, I also shoot games for friends and relatives. The photographs that follow were taken during my cousin’s son’s 9U baseball game. While his team lost the game, my cousin’s son — coming in as a reliever — pitched an awesome game.

I have been asked if I do sports photo shoots for non-family and friends, and the answer is yes. If you would like me to attend your child’s game and take some candid photographs, please email me via the contact form, telling me exactly what it is you would like me to do. You will find my service affordable. I offer everything from photo shoots to prints, on location or in studio.

Bicycle Barn, Rural Southern Michigan

Highways are what people use to get from point a to point b in as little time as possible. I am not much of a highway guy. I much prefer leisurely drives on back roads with the position of the sun guiding my travel to some nondescript small Midwestern community. My wife and I have taken countless trips where we had no clear destination in mind. Recently, on our back roads wandering to South Haven, Michigan, Polly and I stumbled upon a barn covered with old bicycles. I told Polly at the time, I wonder WHY someone attached the bicycles to the barn? What was their reasoning on the day they decided to attach the first biped manual motoring machine to their barn? We humans are a funny lot, not that I am complaining. We all do things that others might find strange or humorous. Each to their own, I say, even if that means you want to hang bicycles on the front of your barn.
