This image is a digitalized copy of an old slide. The original photographer left some data on the back.
Written in pencil:
Two freighters heading into Lake St. Clair
SK (I am not sure what these markings mean. I am assuming it was a way for the photographer to determine the batch of photos.)
Of course, I would love more information on this photo. Are the children with the photographer? Were they just spending a day on the shore? Where was the freighters heading? Was this a normal day for the ships?
I am never satisfied. I want to know the whole story.
Ok…I am not bird a expert. I am just guessing. But, when the Egrets and other water birds begin to gather, I know summer is coming to an end. Hard to believe right now, the temperatures are still in the 90-degree range with high humidity. Yet, from my photo adventures, I can tell you colder weather is just around the corner.
I snapped this photo over by the dikes, yes, that is a local term. I know there is a formal name for the protected wetland area. I just cannot remember. (I keep telling myself to photograph the sign, but I get distracted by the wildlife).
