About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

On our way to the wildlife refuge yesterday, we passed by the little "town" of Juliette.

I wanted to get a shot down main street (the ONLY street) while there were no vehicles parked along the street, but I would be shooting directly into the sun. So, we drove around the backside of the town and I tried to shoot in the opposite direction.

Between the town and me was two RR tracks and a chain link fence, so it doesn't make for a pretty photo.

On the way back, we stopped so I could try to get the shot again but by now the street was parked full...most every body we assume was at the Whistle Stop Cafe...the one made famous in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. THIS IS where most of FGT was filmed! It is just a quaint setting.

If we get the position for next fall/winter/spring I will be able to get LOTS of good photos of this main street!

I will have more photos and info in a day or two.

  1. I loved that movie!!!! Jessica Tandy was wonderful in it. Filming there must have been a realllly big deal and a lot of excitement for that small town.
    Thanks for trying so hard to get a good pic-0- I think it looks like a charming place.
    Hope you are doing great, feeling good and ready for the holidays. xo jj

  2. Joanna, Thanks! I wish I could have gotten it from the other end though! Next time! Doing well and feeling pretty good; hope the same for you too!

  3. Wow, it really was a little town! I'm amazed people actually run the Whistle Stop Cafe as a business, obviously the movie helped there! lol
    Thanks for popping by and letting me know about Juliette.

  4. Chris, It IS a very tiny town. I was so surprised that the main street (the ONLY street) was parked full when we came back!
