Guest Blog by Susanne Helmert: My Lake, My Love

As we head into the weekend, I am happy to offer some serenity by the way of Susanne Helmert's Lake Michigan photos. As threatened in my post about her work that I discovered at the 57th Street Art Fair, I asked her whether she'd be willing to do a guest blog, and she graciously agreed, so here is Susanne in her own words (Thank you, Susanne!):

One of the things I love the most about living in Chicago is having Lake Michigan so close by. I moved to Chicago two years ago and it was pretty much love at first sight! Such a powerful lake, which sometimes can be as angry as an ocean and sometimes as calm as a little pond. I never get tired capturing its different moods, faces and colors.

But - since I’m not very good with words - I better let my photographs speak for me… I hope you enjoy!

If you want to see more, see the whole set on flickr.

  1. The only thing I can think of to say is, amazing!

  2. So mystical. Thanks for sharing your art.

  3. Wonderful photos. I grew up in the Chicago area, and Lake Michigan was always a part of my life. I enjoyed seeing it again. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I just returned from a five mile walk along the lakefront/beach. We are truly spoiled.
