Photos: Holland, Michigan

My wife is from Southeast Michigan, a small town called Martin. Every summer since we’ve started dating we go up there to visit her family. Her mom now lives in Holland which is a really cool small city with a heavy dutch influence, hence the name. They also have a really pretty beach right on Lake Michigan there. On my trips around the city and visiting family members back and forth I made frequent stops taking photos of the countryside as well.

Abstract Landscape Photos

While I was at Holland Beach I create some abstract photos of the landscape by showing my shutter down and shaking my camera slightly as I took the photos. I think these two photos came out really cool looking. I’m thinking about experimenting more with this type of photography.
