In the event that there aren’t enough 8s for you on this August 8th, here’s a whole bunch more from the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids.

Today is Michigan in Pictures 8th Birthday!

I started Michigan in Pictures on December 30, 2005. In the 8 years I’ve been doing this, I’ve posted 2,494 photos of and from the Great Lakes State.

This is far and away my favorite web project of all time, because every week I learn new things about the people, places, history and natural world of the state that is my home. I’m so grateful to the photographers who have shared and continue to share their photos with me and an audience who keeps showing up for more of Michigan.

Thank you!
