The business district of Canandaigua, Michigan, was all closed up when I arrived Sunday afternoon (two Sundays ago). Even though it didn’t look as interesting to me as the scenes on this side of the street, I got to wondering if I should have pointed my camera across the street to the left (west), to [...]
Here are a couple more photos from Monday’s bike ride. These were taken during a brief lunch break in a public park along the River Raisin. It was the first time I had been in Blissfield in quite a few years, and it was the first time I ever associated with place with sunshine.
