Wend Images Gallery

The American countryside has been changing as more small farms are incorporated into corporate farms, or converted to shopping malls, warehouses or subdivisions. With this collection, I've tried to capture fragments of country living that still exist in various parts of the U.S. or their remnants.

Fort Michillimackinac Reconstruction, Michigan

In 1714, he French began building their fort, Michilimackinac, at the confluence of Lakes Michigan and Lake Huron, close to the present day Mackinac Bridge. The area was historically inhabited by the Odawa tribe.

The French intended to control the fur trade in the upper Great Lakes region, so created this well- defended settlement/military post.

During the fort's existence, it was controlled at various times by the French, British, and Americans. There's more information here.

My brother, Charlie, as a college student, took part in an archeaological dig at the site of the fort, uncovering remains of the fort's armory.
