Warren Dunes State Park lies on the Western side of Michigan's Lower Peninsula on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Warren Dunes State Park lies on the Western side of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula on the shores of Lake Michigan. The most well known features of the 1,952 acre park are the large dunes including Mt. Fuller, Pikes Peak, and Mt. Edwards, and Tower Hill which is 240 feet (73 meters) above the lake.
On the day I visited, two storms rolled through the area on a very windy afternoon. When the storms broke and the sky cleared, I climbed the highest dune, Tower Hill. The dune was dotted with people climbing up and tumbling down the large hill. When I did reach top I was impressed by the sweeping views of the beach below. And in the far distance on the opposite shore I could even see the skyline of Chicago.

Virginia City is a state-maintained historic site in the western part of the United States. In the 1860s, mining drew in investors and businessmen to the area. They built saloons, inns and a variety of stores in Gothic and Greek Revival styles. Many of these buildings have been preserved in vivid detail. Western fonts welcome tourists, and some modern-day merchants even operate within these photogenic, pilaster-lined shops.
Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
