Dirty farmwater on a pretty day.

Misc of the Michigan outstate.

Among Tim Kiser's albums



  • Was difficult to find a parking spot in downtown Benton Harbor.

    I spent I don't know how long hunting for a place to park. Plenty of space for grassy lawns and ostentatious ductworks coming out from walls, but not cars I guess. Ladders to heaven. Lake Michigan would probably be visible from the roof! -------------…

  • Sleep of Benton Harbor.

    Colors of pavement area; here were a parking lot and a street with a sidewalk between them. You can come down here and just park and park and park and park. ----------------------- In downtown Benton Harbor, Michigan, on March 27th, 2012, a view from t…

  • A sunny AT&T morning in downtown Flint.

    Think about all of the downtowns of smallish U.S. cities you have seen in which microwave tower contraptions in the sky are especially visually prominent, relative to their surroundings. ---------------------- In downtown Flint, Michigan, on May 26th, 2…


  • 1990 world.

    It surprises me that the pipes and gas metering equipment were installed post-1990. I can't remember the last time I observed workmen installing a gas meter. --------------------- In downtown Flint, Michigan, on May 26th, 2013, in Brush Alley, south of…

  • Downtown Flint; here was Harris.

    So far the juniper groundcover seems to have been doing a good job of taking care of itself during these decades of the decline of Flint. That large black box is probably going to fall off the wall at some point. ----------------------- In downtown Fli…

  • Message of "here it is, workmen."

    "Look! ***Utility location!***" The arrow painter did a pretty good job of matching the color of the arrows to the color of the rusty metal smile, probably without meaning to. Shadow of a streetlight. The curb used to be colored red for "firelane" but…


  • A Flint scene: The Flint River in Flint.

    If you ever want to watch something roll down a slope and splash into water, here are places for that. ----------------------- In Flint, Michigan, on May 26th, 2013, the Flint River as viewed downstream from Stevenson Street. ----------------------- L…

  • I see where you've been searching the worldwide web for pictures of the Gun River in southwestern Michigan.

    Well here one is. It's copyrighted, you're only allowed to look at it. You can't take it and republish it on some other website. ----------------------- In Martin Township in Allegan County, Michigan, on May 29th, 2013, the Gun River as viewed from the…

  • Rural utility pole.

    It is a plant now. ----------------------- In Martin Township in Allegan County, Michigan, on May 29th, 2013, on the east side of 3rd Street between 116th Avenue and 118th Avenue. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification ideas: TK324…


  • A cloudy summer afternoon in a flat region of Michigan.

    In Schoolcraft Township on the northern outskirts of Schoolcraft, Michigan, on May 30th, 2013, a view toward "Year Round Golf," off the east side of U.S. Route 131, north of Lyons Street. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification idea:…

  • A different corner.

    Here was the importance of squeezing the eight letters of DREAMERS onto a panel of exactly this size. This may have been a waste of rounded stone veneer. ----------------------- In downtown Marshall, Michigan, on May 30th, 2013, along the east side of…

  • Wonderful roadside.

    As an elderly man in the future, I expect I will think fondly back upon my visits to rural roadsides in such places as Michigan (seen here); and I will tell stories about the visits. ----------------------- North of Dundee, Michigan, in Dundee Township,…


  • Dirty farmwater on a pretty day.

    Here were brown scums and films in a food growth area. ----------------------- In Albee Township, Michigan, on July 24th, 2014, Misteguay Creek as viewed downstream from the north side of an abandoned bridge at the intersection of Verne Road and Cresswe…

  • Foreground sand at a bend in a road, during a cloud event in a farm region.

    In Albee Township, Michigan, on July 24th, 2014, at the intersection of Verne Road and Cresswell Road. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification ideas: TE233 Gravel roads—United States—Pictorial works. TE229 Rural roads—United States—Pi…

  • Going up north to see the fall colors.

    Northeast of Saginaw, Michigan, in Merritt Township, on September 27th, 2014, on the west side of Finn Road, south of Brown Road. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification ideas: QK773 Climbing plants—Pictorial works. TK3242 Electric li…


  • A picture of me enjoying a fine view of Tallahassee Creek in areas of pastureland and farmland in southern Michigan on a partly sunny day in autumn.

    Famously, Tallahassee Creek flows to the Coldwater River, which flows to the St. Joseph River, which flows to Lake Michigan. If you're familiar with the geography of the Great Lakes region you know how exciting this is. ----------------------- In Algans…

  • Fall farmwater of Cedar Creek.

    This is in Barry County, Michigan, so you know the water is HIGHLY agriculturous. Barry County was named in flattery of Andrew Jackson's postmaster general, William Barry, and I feel it would be okay to rename the county now. ----------------------- Ce…

  • A canopy for a garage door.

    Solves the problem of rain falling outside the door. ----------------------- In downtown Hastings, Michigan, on October 11th, 2014, in an alley connecting North Church Street and North Jefferson Street, between West Apple Street and West State Street.…
