"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything." -Plato Rick Lahmann and our Biscuit. Rick owns Reflections Gallery in Fishtown Leland Michigan. If there was a heart in Fishtown, I would say it was Carlson's Fish. If there was a soul, it would be Reflections. Rick's been there for almost 20 Years. He is an accomplished pianist and he will play for you if you ask nicely. If you are in Fishtown, tell him we sent you there.

"Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness." -Rollo May This Great Horned Owl lives at the Schlitz Audubon Center in Milwaukee, WI. Missing his right eye, he cannot fend for himself in the wild so he, and his other feathered friends, act as ambassadors to those willing to learn more. Thank you to those that care. http://www.schlitzaudubon.org #fb #burnhamarts
stress - a piece from the 'LUCERE' series #BPHOTOGRAPHY
The rail due North past the acre my maternal grandparents called home. It once ran near a place I called home, that left a much less palatable after taste. .---- The rail due South leads closer to my parent's home...where peaceful memories reside. The birds fly south as do I although it's not my forever home, but a stop along the way. Some days I don't know which way to fly. --- Do I follow the lines laid out before me or do I fly with the wind at my back? I no longer know which way to call my own as I think about time that's never coming back. #naturephotography #naturephoto #thegramgang

Going through some old photos.
Ended an overcast day with a little sunshine.
'LUCERE' Art is, by definition, the expression or application of the human imagination, producing works to be appreciated for their emotional power. Emotions and concepts are things that are very difficult (and very interesting) to capture as a photographer. How do you photograph a thing in real life to represent something that isn’t quite real? LUCERE is my solution. Lucere is a Latin term that means “to shine”, and from this word, a project was born. Using a photography technique called light painting, it is possible to create images in real life that don’t seem quite real, highlighting different emotions and concepts that aren’t easily photographed in everyday life. The first piece, entitled ’stress', drops tomorrow. Get ready to see something completely different. Welcome to LUCERE #BPHOTOGRAPHY

"If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree." -Jim Rohn A Male Americal Kestrel "rousing" at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Rousing is a sure sign a bird is comfortable with their surroundings as it does put them at risk breifly. It allows them to realign their feathers. From http://www.schlitzaudubon.org "Schlitz Audubon founded our Raptor Program as a way to help educate the public about these dynamic birds, and their importance to the ecosystem. Our premier col­lection of birds of prey emphasizes raptors (hawks, owls, eagles and falcons), but also includes other birds of prey such as a Turkey Vulture and an American Crow. Each of our resident birds are not releasable to the wild and are in our permanent care. They have taken up the mantle of “feathered ambassadors” and are dedicated to providing infor­mation about their wild relatives, habitat concerns, and issues facing raptors today." "These powerful and graceful birds, each with their own story, make an enormous impact, providing a true connection and appreciation for all wildlife and the habitat we share. Nothing is more thrilling than meeting a bird of prey up close and personal. Each of our live demonstrations provides an unparalleled experience designed to en­thrall audiences of all ages." . . . #fb #burnhamarts
"My ideal date would involve a park or rowing in those little boats on a lake." -Aja Naomi King The Janice Sue and the Joy, along with a tribal fishing boat are some of the last hold outs of 100 years of commercial fishing out of the small town of Leland, MI. . . . . #thelelandreport #lelandmi

It's all about the bloom here. The last of it 🌸
These last few storms didn't leave any chance for us to enjoy the bloom longer. The smell of lilac brings me so many childhood memories 😌 #rochester_mn
Springtime in Detroit I took this picture last Spring. An iconic pic of the Detroit skyline. So iconic that my friend found this shot displayed on her recent Delta flight out of Detroit. Well... Delta... if it is mine that you are displaying... please give me credit! #sunrise_sunset_worldwide #sunset_vision #superhubs_sunset #beautifulplaces #bns_trees #super_photosunsets  #amazingphotohunter #beautifulshotss #beautifuldestinations #travelingourplanet #jj_skylove #gottolove_this #sky_sultans #loves_skyandsunset #igpodium_life #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld  #2s_sunsea #epic_captures #ig_exquisite #jaw_dropping_shots #colors_of_day #igpodium_mood #vzcomood  #lovesunset_sunrise
