Cranbrook by Fisheye

As long as I’m stuck in the Mitten, I thought I should write about my favorite thing here- Cranbrook. And is there anything prettier than Cranbrook photography?

From age six until age 17, I attended Cranbrook Schools (and as I’ve been asked a lot recently, yes, Mitt Romney is also an alum). Cranbrook has a beautiful 365-acre campus where I have years worth of memories. During free periods in high school I used to go outside to tan with friends or do my homework on the bough of a tree. It’s really a magical place.

My dad recently gave me my grandfather’s old fisheye lens- so I decided to play around with it on Cranbrook campus- this is the result. Hopefully you think my school is as beautiful as I do.

    • It’s gorgeous, right! If you’re ever in Detroit (ha) you’ll have to check it out. I practically wish I were in high school again just to hang out there!

  1. What a fun way to photograph! And yes, the place looks gorgeous, you were one lucky kid. Not a fan – at all – of the Mitt, so will skip that part but thanks for sharing the photos :)

    • Thank you Molly! It was a fun day… looking at the pictures makes me miss all summer. We have lots of other random alumni too, including Selma Blair and Lisa Frank.
