Grand Rapids Public Museum

Last Monday I went with my two oldest sons, their wives, and their kids (three of my five grandkids) to the Grand Rapids Public Museum (http://www.grmuseum.org/). The museum is an eclectic mix of antiques, natural history, and science. As I often try to do, I looked for the unusual in the midst of the usual.

The first image is of a large clock that hangs from the top of the three-story main hall.

In the same entrance hall I focused on a headlight from an old car.

This antique table was part of a furniture making exhibit; one of Grand Rapid’s early industries.

The last two photos are more abstract. I tried to capture the lines and angles that are so much a part of this museum that sits right on the Grand River. (It even has a working carousel that is cantilevered over the river!) While both images include a blue bridge, a very large wheel from a restored generator from a table factory frames the last image. The titles sum up the images fairly well.
