Douglas St.

The icy streets glisten in the afternoon sun.

Digital cameras! I've set something and now I can't figure out how to undo it. Oh no -- does this mean (gasp) I have to... read the manual???

Blue skies and lots of light

After the big snowstorm a sunny day is dazzling.

A cold place to read

This sculpture on a downtown park bench depicts a girl reading to a young boy. A nice summery sculpture...

Oh, Snow!

The promised snow finally arrived today with high winds stirring and tossing it about like dust devils in the desert. This sculpture-person by Brian Brook, doubling as a gallery open sign, seems amazed by the change in weather. Or maybe she is warming up for a part in L'Orfero, now showing (as a film) at the Riviera Theater.

Santa Tanks

Someone at the American Legion building in Three Rivers celebrated the holidays by parking Santa atop the WWII tank that sits next to their building. I suppose it could be seen as either amusing... or horrible.

Sign of the Times

Posted on the library door: "Patrons with flu symptoms are asked to refrain from using the library..."

I know, it's an odd photo, but it works for me. See more of the world in monochrome at The Monochrome Weekly, presented by Aileni.

Christmas windows, no snow

More decorated windows downtown, but the predicted fourteen inches of snow never arrived. A friend came down from Grand Rapids and said it was all piled up there. Here, just a few sparkly bits, hanging in the air.
