Another River Street shot

Here's another pre-fire photo of two buildings that burned down in Ontonagon, Michigan, last weekend. I'm still tweaking the photos I took that day with Photomatix high-dynamic-range software, trying to make the colors pop out but not to overdo it. I'm trying to make the buildings look memorably picturesque, not like overly made up ladies of the night.


  1. The pictures of the fire made me cry. Thank you so much. I was born in Ontonagon at the old hospital. I now live in Oak Park, Mi.

  2. I have looked all over for pictures of the after math, now I'm not so sure I wanted to see it.I feel so bad about it. I was raised in Ontos and still call it home. Sharon Sirvio
