The Midwest Large Format Asylum does West Michigan




The Midwest Large Format Asylum came to West Michigan over the weekend. It's a group I try to get out with when they meet once a month, and being in the area definitely made it easier. We spent Saturday morning and afternoon in the Allegan area, and moved to Grand Rapids to do night shots of the river.

Of course a group of folks with 4x5 cameras attracts some attention. I was asked 5 or 6 times about the cameras. Some of the most interested folks were a group of high school kids from a prom being held at the public museum. They must have spent 10 or so minutes talking to me.

Sunday morning, we met again downtown and photographed the area around the Grand Rapids Art Museum. The chalk drawings from the Chalk Flood that was held the day before were still around and that was an attraction as well.

All in all, a good weekend.
