Gone, But Not Forgotten: Imagined Images

Several years ago we traveled to the eastern shore of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to search for our great-grandparents farm, on a dirt road in the little town of Stalwart. We had a photograph from 1900 as a reference, but we were uncertain whether their home would still be there.

We did find the house in a clearing in the forest. As I took the photograph, ghostly apparitions appeared before me as I imagined that instant in the old photograph of the carriage and where it might have taken my grandparents that day.
