Distinctive Northern Michigan Photography
Local area photography by award winning artist David M. Black. Featuring photos of the Mackinac Bridge, northern lights and night sky vistas, Mackinac Island, wildlife and nature scenes, spectacular lightning and much, much more.
Award Winning Artist David M. Black
David has lived in Michigan for his entire life combining a love of nature, astronomy and history with a passion for photography. After graduating from Henry Ford Community College in 1985, he attended Eastern Michigan University while working full time as a territorial sales manager until 1991. He then broke the traditional 9–5 routine to pursue his dream and begin a career based on photography. He opened his own store back in 1994 where he still operates from today. He also takes his work “on the road” by participating in numerous art and craft shows. Over the years of customer purchasing, his work is displayed throughout numerous countries all over the world, and one photo which was even flown on the space shuttle in 1997.
Along with developing his own prints in his darkroom, he also makes his own wood frames to compliment his photography. All his frames are made from white pine and each frame has special handcrafted workmanship including shaped edges, splined corners for extra reinforcement, and a unique hand laid wood or rope insert mounted in the center of each frame. They’re proudly made in St. Ignace, MI. U.S.A.
No matter where he goes or what he does, his camera bag always comes along. Extended hikes in bush and wilderness along with the many thousands of miles traveled throughout Michigan’s two peninsulas, and numerous “all nighters” piercing through his telescope have provided this opportunity to experience and photograph Michigan’s natural beauty and rich human history.
After living on the island “Grosse Ile”, south of Detroit for his first 28 years of life, he now resides in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, City of St. Ignace.
You can see this and his other work at his gallery, Mackinac Straits Photography Gallery, at 208 North State Street, St. Ignace, Michigan 49781. OR if you are from outside the area, you can check out his website at https://www.mackinacstraitsphoto.com/.

Original Murdick’s Fudge of Mackinac IslandOriginal Murdick’s Fudge of Mackinac Island
1880s – 1910s
In 1887, father-and-son sail makers, Henry and Jerome “Rome” Murdick, were commissioned to create canvas awnings for the new Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.
“The Grand” would eventually contribute in a huge way to making the Mackinac region a center of booming tourism.
With the Murdicks’ arrival to the island came Mrs. Henry Murdick (Sara) and her exquisite confectionery skills and recipes
In 1887, Mackinac Island’s first candy shop opened as Murdick’s Candy Kitchen. Henry Murdick continued to make sails in the back of the building, while up front, Rome crafted fudge using his mother’s recipe. The renowned marble table gave the fudge a unique texture and also provided a veritable “stage” on which to show visitors how fudge is made.
Rome’s oldest son, Gould, soon mastered the skills of fudge making. However, World War I impacted sugar rationing, bringing many fudge businesses to a halt on Mackinac Island.
1920s – 1940s
In 1920, Rome and Gould revitalized fudge making and their “show.” They added music and large ceiling fans so the sweet aroma of fudge would waft into the street. Other families opened fudge shops as well during this time, as the temperate climate conditions on the island are conducive to fudge making. But with the Great Depression in 1929, all closed, except Murdick’s Candy Kitchen.
Post-Depression business became even more challenging (on some days, Gould sold only one pound of fudge!). Gould sold the business to Harold May in 1940 (Gould agreed that the Murdick family would not compete in the candy business on Mackinac Island for ten years.)
1950s – 1960s
Jerome Murdick, Gould’s half-brother, opened Murdick’s Luncheonette on the island in 1957. When the non-compete clause expired, Jerome began to sell fudge at the luncheonette and eventually converted his business into Murdick’s Candy Kitchen, using the name of his great grandfather’s (Henry Murdick) original shop. Jerome continued the family fudge-making tradition using the original recipe. Each summer, Jerome and his wife, Grace, ran the Main Street business (the couple lived in the back of their shop).
Meanwhile, young entrepreneur Bob Benser, Sr. arrived to the island in 1955. Bob built and ran a Tastee Freeze ice cream shop next to Murdick’s Candy Kitchen. Jerome and Grace treated Bob like the son they never had. When Jerome became ill, Bob stepped in to help Grace keep the business open. He learned about how to make fudge, exact cooking and shaping temperatures and the all-important fudge-paddle movements. After leasing and operating the business, Bob Benser, Sr. bought the Murdicks’ business in 1969.
Today,the company still follows Sara Murdick’s recipe and the old-fashioned fudge-making techniques that have been passed down through the generations. Original Murdick’s Fudge has expanded to other locations on Mackinac Island as well as in Mackinaw City and St. Ignace, Michigan, in addition to three stores and a bakery in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Bob Benser, Sr. and Bob Benser, Jr. continue that tradition today along with the entire Benser family.
