Today’s photo-of-the-day still remains obsessed with Marquette, Michigan’s Ore Dock from last Wednesday.
Much of what this photo suggests is an outright lie.
#1: It was NOT a dark and stormy morning. (The clouds roiled ominously, but no storms rose.)
#2 This picture makes the viewer think that it’s still fr-fr-freezing cold here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Oh how wrong! Yesterday, and today, the temperature spiked to 80 fair degrees (26.6 C). We lounged on the deck in our Little House in the Big Woods and burned our bare feet on the hot boards and perspired and whined, “It’s TOO hot!” (Are we humans ever satisfied?)
I simply had to move backwards in time and show you this photo from last week because I love the way Lake Superior seems to cradle the ore dock, the circular feel of it.
I love when the camera tells a different story from what the eye saw. It’s like an extra-special gift to view an ordinary sight from a new angle, a different perspective, a widened view.
Wishing we might all continue to be amazed by different points of view this fine Memorial Day weekend. Let’s never cease being amazed.
