Point Betsie Lighthouse

For a minute, I thought I was colorblind

Is it just me, or does it seem odd for a postcard series entitled “Colors of Michigan” to feature a black and white photo?  On the reverse side, the photo description contains the photographer’s explanation: “Every once in a while a photo just looks right as a black and white.”  Since there’s nothing really all that exceptional about this black and white photo, I’m going to translate this explanation as “the light was terrible and the colors were way off, but I like the view so maybe I can still salvage this.”

If you’re interested in learning about the Point Betsie Lighthouse, built in 1858 on the shore of Lake Michigan, pay a visit to The Friends of Point Betsie Lighthouse.

    Definitely odd. I’ve been to Michigan, and colors do exist there, so calling that card the “Colors of Michigan” is false advertising in my book. :)
