Michigan in Photographs

This slideshow is a take on the one I posted on my website on the Gallery Page. Everything I love and love to do is in here. I've added some and removed some from the website so you might want to see both go to to see the original.. with Music. I've added a lot of fishing shots here . You can see how beautiful Lake St Clair is... and the fishing is terrific. I know it's hard for a lot of people in this country to see anything beautiful about Michigan or especially the Detroit Area. For those of you who have never ventured out on the lakes, or have never really visited Michigan and have this horrible image of our state.. you are in for a shock. We have beautiful scenery, wildlife galore, breathtaking fall colors, water everywhere, a sunrise side and a sunset side, wonderful people, and yes... even hummingbirds.

We are in a crisis. Our hardworking people are having a very difficult time right now, but the core of our citizens are resilient, energetic, creative, and will eventually pull this state up by it's bootstraps and get it on the right road. We will not give in, we will not give up.. it is in our nature to perservere. I pulled this quote from Mike (Michigan Man) Ridley's My Space page.. I think it says it all:

Life is merely an ongoing series of efforts, more than likely connected by one of two things: the need to make a living or the desire to make a change. Stay in the game because only you can determine its outcome. -Mike Ridley (Michigan Man)

Rachel & Patrick, January 3, 2009


Congratulations Rachel and Patrick! Such a beautiful bride, flawless skin, bubbly personality, and a bright, warm, smile.... no wonder Patrick loves her so much. Patrick is a member of the 82nd Airborne, the All American regiment. He will be returning to Afghanistan for his second tour shortly. I have to say, what an impressive young man he is. Our soldiers are the absolute greatest and we should thank them every chance we get. Thank you Patrick, take care, and come home soon and safely to your beautiful and loving bride.
Watch for more of Rachel and Patrick on my website at soon.
