The second photograph is a long view of the area that featured the Leptothrix discophora films July 14.

  1. Nice to see the long view as well as the ‘films’ that we have come to enjoy so much.

    • Thanks, Andy. Part of the reason I chose to include the long view is to show how ordinary things can look until you take a closer look. This is not a lesson you need to learn!

  2. I really like seeing these – the problem I have all the time with news photography is lack of context. This really gives the big picture and orients me, makes me feel like I could find that too, if I knew where to look, and now I do (thought I realize there are many factors involved). Puts me at the scene.

    • Good! That’s exactly why I included the long shot. These films occur all over the world, including all 50 of our states. You just never know when or where you might come across them. Some places, however, have more than their share, and I’m happy that the Great Lakes region is one of them. A lot depends on how much iron is in the soil and water.
