One of Michigan’s gems, Mackinac Island, sits at the top of the mitten and is home to charming stores, picturesque hikes and, of course, lots of fudge shops. The small island is only 4.35 square miles and does not allow any sort of cars or motorized vehicles, except for a firetruck and an ambulance. Instead, bicycles scatter the streets and horse drawn carriages function as taxis. For such a small island, there is a rich history that dates all the way back to the 17th century, when Fort Mackinac served as a United States base during the War of 1812.

Rides at the Seaside Heights boardwalk are closed during the off-season.

I’ve never been to an empty boardwalk and now I can understand why. It’s haunting. Empty rides. Closed arcades. The ferris wheel didn’t have chairs attached to it (I didn’t know they could come off in the first place ... which is not the most assuring thought). Even in broad daylight, the lack of life and sound feels like a different universe. Mind you, it’s technically the off-season, but the prospects for any boardwalks along the East Coast are not looking good in the coming months. I think we can all predict they won’t be the same for a while.

Sure enough, I tried to go and photograph an empty Big House, but only got the outside.

“Can you edit a photo of the Big House empty?”

As a photo editor, that’s not a normal question to get asked. A picture of a Maize out at Yost? Sure, we have that. Protests on the Diag? Of course. But an empty stadium, let alone the Big House? Well that just isn’t in the job description.
