A. Louis Photography offers us a rare view of the lighthouse – View his Blog Post >>>
Every once in a while, an opportunity to cross off a “bucket list” comes along. August 7th was just such a day.
If you have followed my work for any amount of time, you have realized that I spend a lot of my free time photographing scenes of the lighthouse in South Haven, Mi. Growing up in the area and spending time as a kid on the pier, I always wondered what the view looked like from the top of the lighthouse. So, two years ago, I added seeing inside the South Haven lighthouse and taking photos from the top to my bucket list. On Thursday the 6th, the opportunity to cross of an item on my list came to me in the form of a text from a fellow photographer.
The first ever Lighthouse Sit
She was invited to take part in the first ever Lighthouse Sit. An event created by the Historical Association of South Haven (H.A.S.H.) during the start of the annual Blueberry Festival to raise awareness and funds to aid in restoring South Haven’s iconic lighthouse. Unfortunately for her she could not stay for her entire 2-hour shift and she needed someone to fill-in for her. How could I say no to a friend in need, right? Not only would I get a chance to be inside the lighthouse but also hopefully help raise some money for the restoration efforts. Please browse through the images and if you can, donate to H.A.S.H. to help them restore the lighthouse. I will provide links at the end of post on how you can contact HASH and make a donation.
