In winter, 2014, northern michigan and particularly Lake Michigan experienced a deep freeze, or polar vortex. Out of that came some eye popping ice formations all throughout the lakeshore. you may have heard of lake michigan ice caves, i might also add, football fields of ice, ice balls, ice cliffs (some 30 feet high), caverns, tunnels, icebergs and so on.  Some of these photo's were taken at some hallmark destinations and villages such as glen arbor, point betsie lighthouse, frankfort pier, elberta beach, old baldy near arcadia and the sleeping bear dunes national lakeshore.

JOSEPH SOLMAN IN HIS EAST VILLAGE APARTMENT, NYC  2008.

 

IN 2008, I LIVED IN EAST VILLAGE, NYC, ON 2ND AVE. AND 10TH TO BE PRECISE. I WAS THE PERSONAL ASSISTANT TO THEN 98 YEAR OLD JOSEPH SOLMAN, EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER, FOUNDER OF "THE TEN" WITH MARK ROTHKO, JACKSON POLLACK AND OTHERS. HE NICKNAMED ME "BONAPARTE" OR ON OCCASION, A "SAGACIOUS CHIEF".  IN LATE SUMMER, AFTER A DAY AT HERALD SQUARE, ICE CREAM AT LUNCH, A GALLERY SHOW UP TOWN, STEAK AND SCOTCH FOR DINNER, JOSEPH RETURNED TO HIS LIVING ROOM CHAIR, AND WITH MOZART PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND, SLEPT INTO DEATH.  THIS IS A PHOTO I TOOK WITH MY HASSELBLAD CAMERA ON A ROLL OF EXPIRED KODAK 400 WHILE HE SAT DRINKING COFFEE IN THE KITCHEN.  ALSO IS A VIDEO HIS SON PAUL SOLMAN, PBS ECONOMIC CORRESPONDENT MADE IN TRIBUTE TO HIS DAD FOR FATHER'S DAY.
