San Francisco: Part Two (Nature)

Would you believe that I went to San Francisco over a year ago, uploaded my photos, then forgot to post them?

Yeah, I believe it, too.

In San Francisco: Part Two (of five), my photographs focus on some interesting nature elements I saw while walking around the piers and near the Golden Gate Bridge.

Photography: Flowers of Mackinac

I visited Mackinac Island for the first time this weekend. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an island in Lake Huron, located between Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. It’s home to Fort Mackinac, which was established by the British during the Revolutionary War (our tour guide admitted that the soldiers spent most of the time drunk), and saw battle during the War of 1812. You can also find the Grand Hotel here, which I only saw the outside of because it’s nearly impossible to get a room there unless you plan wayyyy in advance.

Also, there’s no cars (exception: pretty certain they have at least a fire truck). Instead, you get around by foot, bicycle, or horse.

Tomorrow I’ll post my general photos from Mackinac Island, but here’s some of the flowers I snapped yesterday morning. I found them all outside the hotel we stayed at (Metivier Inn).

Photography: Snowy Day on Campus

These photos didn’t stem from a photography assignment, but rather from my taking advantage of the fresh snowfall blanketing NMC when I arrived on campus that morning. They were taken on January 30, several hours prior to said weather being a factor in the accident that totaled out my car (a look at that at the bottom). Now that recovery and playing catch-up is over, it’s time for these pics to shine.

This is at the Cherry Lot, where grass, trees, and swamp ring its fringes.
