Is it time for a Michigan group ?

I, for one, would love to put together a co-op gallery in the Detroit area.

Or a treehouse. We could have a secret handshake.

And beer.

I'm on the other side of the state from Detroit, but I'm always interested in linking up with like-minded people.

This week four loco locals and some outsiders are doing a platinum LF workshop on the south east side of Cleveland. See BobHerbst.com Until you have enough for a MI group, lets talk about a MI-OH group. Maybe there are some INs interested also. Anything iteresting to shoot on the tri state corner? Auburn-Cord Dusensenberg is another interest of mine, but I'm interested in talking and shooting with like minded LF souls.

Keep me in mind. I live a few blocks from Detroit off of woodward and would be interested. Maybe we could meet in Ann Arbor. It is pleasant enough to warrant a day trip for those on the west coast and up in the pinky.

Unfortunately, mu schedule tends to preclude long term planing, but I'll do my best.


There are also Ontario and Chicago APUGers. We could have a Great lakes APUG Meet.

I rather like the sound of a "Great Lakes APUG" meet.

I wouldn't mind being part of a "Great Lakes Apuggers" :D You know we have folk in Wisconsin, too. Maybe we can put something together this fall.

Just as an aside the Mississippi River area between Wisconsin and Minnesota is beautiful.

I would be very interested in participating in a Great Lakes group. Between the Great Lakes themselves, UP waterfalls, Indiana farms, the urban landscapes of Detroit, Chicago, and Cleveland; there are great photographs to be made here.

Well that's because THIS is the 'chosen land'! ;) haha :D

Well, that would be very cool! I spend much time in the 3-state area of WI, IN & MI; living in WI, with family in the other two.

Hubby & I are going up to the UP on Monday for nine days as a matter of fact! We'll be stopping in Marinette county (WI) to shoot some falls, then work our across '2' then up to the Soo to see his family. Over to the Two Hearted River, then on to more falls in Munising before going back home. :) Ahhh... ain't life grand???

I'm in Kalamazoo and would be interested in meeting folks.

To the LF folks in the region there is also the Midwest Large Format Asylum which is an informal group that has held outings in the Chicago area, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. The group has an outing planned in mid-September to see an Edward Weston (at least I believe it is EW) exhibit in Indianapolis. Members are also from Minnesota and Ohio although I don't think any trips have been held in those states yet. They have a website (http://www.midwestlargeformat.com/) if anyone is interested in more info.

At Pictured Rocks:
If you don't mind a 11 mile hike, take the mosquito falls trail to Lake Superior, turn right, thru Grand Portal to Chapel Beach and back on the North side of the river to Chapel Falls. Great hike and you may even get a picture.

Thanks for the heads up, Jim! I do not mind the hike... our dear old dog might not enjoy it much, but we'll wait & see how she's doing when we get there. She's a 14yr old dalmatian/blk. Lab mix (a b&w dog, of course)! ;)

Joe... I'm in K-zoo a lot... I'll have to pm you sometime when I'm over there.

Just outside of Munising on 94 i think it is, there is (are) the Wagner Falls. They are very nice and easy to get to. Climb over the rail and get into the river for the best shots.

Ok so there is some general interest. So how do we move forward and make something happen?

I would suspect that we propose a series of locations and times and see which combinations get the most action.

I would also recommend that we nominate Peter or DF to lead the charge on this.

I don't think they allow dogs on most of the path. Only from the parking lot to chapel falls..."I think". It may be quite a walk for an old dog, its getting harder for me I notice.

If you don't have one, check the book store for "Michigan Atlas & Gazetteer". It has the state broke down and shows all the waterfalls in the state. There are a lot of them in the U.P.

I'm from Kazoo and live 50 miles north. If you get to kazoo, I'm good for coffee.

OK ! So, how about it ?

Peter.... and all ...

Gotta start someplace. How about September 10, in Clare, Michigan ?

If we meet in the middle of the state a couple times this fall, we can meet.. then retreat during the winter. I think Ferndale, maybe a studio tour, would be good in, oh, November or December.
