Dave Dinsdale, photographer from Rochester Hills, whose favorite subject is Michigan's nature. His Jordan Valley masterpiece was made from piecing together 16 of his photos. Although he has captured wonderful images from his travels both here and abroad in France and Germany, he loves his home state. He and his wife Nancy (also his business partner) have transferred many of his pictures to tiles that can either be used as wall art or trivets and coasters.

What perfect weather this weekend for Rochester Hills' Fine Art in the Village on Adams Rd at Tienken which is running until 8pm today and 6pm on Sunday. About 6 dozen artists were set up and selling their wares from near and far. Two young girls were adding ambience by playing the violin and the flute. It was very well attended.

Selinsky-Green home would have been razed for the I-696 expressway, but those with foresight fought to preserve it and it was moved to 11 Mile Rd and Jefferson adjacent to the library. Volunteers restored this salt box house and maintain it. Pretty cool. This Saturday an old-time toy-making class is being held in the log house at 1pm.
