The Cup

This is from the Red Wings parade from a few weeks back but I just got the film developed so here it is. I knew my friends were working, I knew Detroit would be absolute madness with the people and the construction and I knew it would be hot. But since I've never been to a Red Wings Stanley Cup parade I decided to make the trip. This was the stop I found that I waited in for hours but it was worth it to be part of such a fun event.

This is something that caught my eye as I was leaving a library during shoot today. It's a bummer that there wasn't an available photo around when this flyer was created but I'd give it an 'A' for effort.

da club

It's been busy since my last post so here's one from a shoot recently. This is a local club that they've tried to get going for the local kids so we'll see how it goes. Hopefully everyone's having a good summer.

Free As A Bird

Since I began working at the Times Herald almost two years ago I've passed this farm that advertises 'fresh eggs'. I never stopped until this Spring and now this is the only spot I get them. There's a definite difference in the egg in its color and taste because the chickens are so happy. If low stress levels equal good eggs than these eggs are top notch. The chickens have it good. This is a free ranger I found while leaving the small farm.

This is from today's curling finals at a local rink. It's the first time I've ever witnessed the sport up close and what you see is what you get. I didn't get to try it but I'm sure its harder than it looks. I personally don't have the patience for such a sport but it was enjoyable taking photos of something new today.

Wings' fans

I was in downtown Detroit last week for the sweltering Red Wings celebration. This is a group of people waiting for the parade to begin at the corner of Gratiot and Woodward which is where I was standing. Once the parade began and players started going by, it was absolute mayhem. However, I got there two hours early and had an ok spot. It was shaded by the buildings, it was next to an emergency exit which had to be kept clear (which was nice) then they set up a free water bottle station right there. It was a sweet spot ! Anyhow, I should have some better photos on my other roll of film, but I've yet to get the roll developed.

This was last evening when some high winds came through blowing trees over. I went to document the situation and saw this little fella here who fit right into the scene with his green coat, green shorts and green stuffed critter in hand.

The Lost Whale

This is something that makes me laugh every time I pass it. It's a condominium but it's called Lost Whale Condos. Hilarious. Someone even took the time to carve a 'lost whale' out of wood to put above the name.

I Want Stanley

This was at a local bar during the Detroit Red Wings game five Stanley Cup final game. I spotted this gentleman at the bar with his hat saying "I Want Stanley" on a pin. We want it indeed sir. As I am posting this, I'm not sure what the outcome of the game will be. I had to come back to the office because of our deadline but hopefully our wishes will be granted.
