Great reflections and shadows near this river!

That's an interesting photo, with the low flat bridge and reflection, framed nicely by the trees. The bright orange sign makes a perfect feather, but I'm not sure it does any good to warn about bridge work for people who aren't even on the bridge. And I wonder, who is "DAVE"? ;)

Cheers, Ryan

i love YOUR PHOTOS! ESPECIALLY THE ONES OF AND AROUND THE FORMER PAPER MILL IN kALAMAZOO. iS "pARCHMENT" A NAME FOR ANOTHER TOWN, OR IS IT PART OF kALAMAZOO? mY FATHER LIVED THERE WHEN HE WAS A BOY, (IN 1902-05)AND i THINK HE MAY HAVE WORKED IN THAT MILL. IT IS SO GREAT TO SEE PHOTOS OF THE PLACE HE LIVED. jAN

Greetings jAN: Thanks for the visit and leaving a comment. Parchment is the city just to the North East of Kalamazoo. I was home to the KVP company, and I believe it was 1934 that KVP obtained the official city status for Parchment. Kalamazoo had many paper factories 100 years ago. Here is a site with pics of a couple mills: http://www.alliedpaper.org/ A couple of mills came down as early as the 1970's and 1980's... so long before "Al Gore invented the Internet", thus little is documented about them. He could have worked for any mill in the greater Kalamazoo area. PM
