The Brother’s Place

The Brother’s Place is the former summer retreat of the Christian Brothers religious order. Located on Beaver Island, thirty miles offshore of Charlevoix, Michigan, it is now a lodge that offers spartan accommodations similar to what the monks would have experienced.

This photo was taken in the chapel. Lit only by the natural light that came through the frosted glass window, the crucifix and organ were gently illuminated. The full size high-resolution version of this photo shows greater detail of the subtle lines of the crucifix as well as the craftsmanship of the organ.
