Today was a work day, and with the sun shining, everything was pretty much worth smiling about. Just some nice views:
First, just blue sky with clouds. Even with no green showing yet, the landscape looks better.
I love the repeating patterns of rotary hay rakes, and this one just seems to VanGogh its way into the blue sky.
This is the old portion of the city of Manistee, taken across Manistee Lake. The current downtown is over the hill, and located along the channel where Manistee Lake drains into Lake Michigan. However, this older section has Main St as the closest to Manistee Lake, and the street from which all the east-west numbers in the county are counted. It also has Manistee St, High St, and Ramsdell St (as in the theater I often mention and the Inn where Ramona's party was, although both of those buildings are over the hill in the newer downtown). In reality, the section seen in this photo is quite run-down when you drive through it, but I like it because of the hilly streets and older buildings.
Finally, just an interesting cupola on a barn.
