My friend Jeff passed away 10 years ago but I’ve never forgotten him or his unique view of photography & the world. He took this photo of a barn on Red Arrow Highway near Paw Paw in southwest Michigan way back in September of 2006 & I figured a lot of you had never seen it! See more in his Michigan gallery on Flickr.

Robert took this back in August of 2015. He shared this perfectly apt quotation from Ansel Adams on his profile & about this photo he writes:
While visiting a local farm market in Petoskey, Michigan, I was drawn to their crop of flowers next to their driveway. The flowers in the foreground are Bachelor’s Buttons. The road that curves through the hilly terrain can be seen near the barn in the distance.

Jamie says that it’s always an amazing feeling to find a hidden gem like this far away from the hectic roads of Michigan, and I wholeheartedly agree! Lots more hidden gems in Jamie’s Buildings & Structures gallery on Flickr & you can learn more about Jamie’s photography workshops on his website!
Today’s post is a shoutout to Dale, a new Michigan in Pictures supporter who grew up in the Boon/Henrietta area. Thank you Dale!!
Boon is located in the northern Lower Peninsula between Manistee and Cadillac. Over half of the town is situated in the Manistee National Forest, which is primarily rural and wooded area.

It was incorporated as a village in 1891 with the name of Gaston. It was named Hariette in 1892 and the present spelling was adopted in 1923. Harrietta is a combination of the names of a railroad official, Harry, and that of his wife, Henrietta.
