A pale, muted panorama displaying a virtual mountain range of the frozen ice shelf. Shot from Lake Shore Drive and comprised of half a dozen photographs, Chicago's glow can be seen on on the left, while some stars peek through a break in the clouds on the right. February 12th, 2014.

My very first gallery showcasing a collection of photographs from the shores of Michigan City. From long exposure nightscapes taken on the ice shelf at 3am in January under a shroud of darkness, to vibrant panoramas with a view of the Chicago skyline during vivid sunsets, all images featured in this opening were shot right here from the beaches of Michigan City. This show will feature the very best of my meticulously taken photographs presenting a vast diversity of unseen views available from our shores. Many of the images show the local scenery in ways most have never experienced, with times of day and dates signed onto each print allowing you to see how the beautiful local landscape changes wildly from day to day. In the spirit of providing a window into the often unseen, no images featuring the lighthouse will be on display.

The gallery is being hosted by A Dove's Tale, located @ 829 Franklin St in Michigan City's Uptown Arts District, and features stunning handcrafted furniture and home furnishings, offering unique furniture designs as well as the ability to custom order to your specifications.


First Friday's in Michigan City's Uptown Arts district features numerous galleries, retail and resale shops, consignment shops with local art, fantastic restaurants, beautiful architecture, music, and absolutely something for everybody. First Friday's official hours are from 5-8pm but some festivities start early and run late, and is the perfect way to spend a late summer's Friday night.
