On a recent motorcycle ride I went past this property, and because I love old, abandoned structures, it caught my eye, and I decided that I was going to return, so, I did. This was the Dwight Correctional Center, located just west of Dwight, Illinois. It was the state’s only Level One maximum-security adult female facility. It was opened in 1930 and closed in 2013. The buildings are beautiful, in a sad way, and I will return to further explore this 160 acre location.
Spent a beautiful afternoon in South Haven, Michigan. The day was gorgeous, and very windy. For the para surfers: a perfect day!
I would not call the Illinois River picturesque, however, with a little help from the sun and some clouds, it dresses up nicely!
Took a short ride with rain to the north, and rain to the south. I was able to stay in the middle and enjoy the beautiful Midwest sky. Thanks for stopping by.
This post could also be called, “variations on a theme.” I got out by 5:00 am and enjoyed chasing the sunrise along the shore. The ocean waves were singing, the sky was just dancing… a beautiful start to the day…
I have so enjoyed spending some time on Long Island visiting my parents. Whenever I come back home I always take a walk in Eisenhower Park and visit the Veterans Memorial. This beautiful memorial serves as a tribute to the heroes of Nassau County. I also always go to Jones Beach. That will be the next post.
A beautiful, if stormy, start to the day.
The first three images were taken from my front porch, and just a 2 minute ride from my home. The sky, light and clouds were just spectacular. The rest are from a ride today on my new Yamaha Tracer 900. Have a great weekend everyone!
We are enjoying a visit with our youngest daughter, her husband, and our youngest granddaughter in North Dakota. Saturday ended beautifully.
Street photography, sports photography, and now, I give you, front porch photography.
