Finally got around to editing photos from last month's annual family trip! After vacationing in Upper Michigan every summer for as long as I can remember, you'd think I'd run out of things to photograph, right? Wrong. For a region that has essentially escaped the progress of the modern day world, I am continually amazed by both the beauty and variety of what I witness there. Perhaps the way I'm able to see largely the same things in a new light year after year without growing bored reflects my growth as a person. These small familiar towns we visit, many of which were once-thriving mining communities at the turn of the century, are a slice of Americana frozen in time, and I will never take any of it for granted. Here are a few select photos!
The last [epic] photo is via Matt Morris.
