Where was this photo taken?

This photo was taken on March 7, 2017, at my home just after I realized I had found the other half of a marble I collected previously.

Both halves were found at the Lake Michigan beach off Warnimont Park in Cudahy, Wisconsin, USA, with the second half being found on March 4, 2017 and the first half being found a little over one year prior.

I was with a friend at my favorite beach trying to find marbles and other glass, when my friend was bending down to pick up a nice piece of glass. While he was picking it up, I saw the 2nd half ~1.5ft away and yelled "marble!"

If he would have found it, then I likely would have never realized I had previously found the other half. Now, these marbles which have been separated for at least one year, will be reunited for as long as I can keep them.

When taking this photo, I felt I was the luckiest man in the world. I had never heard of anyone finding two halves of the same marble, much less one year apart.

To take the photo, I used a Samsung Galaxy cellular phone camera.

My tips for finding marbles is to just quickly scan the top of marble-sized beach gravel for interesting colors. The marbles are out there, we just have to look!

To photograph them in the wild is tricky because of the varying weather, so practice is key.

Happy hunting!
