The call was "safe" but the photo makes one wonder if he really was.

Blog dog

I was photographing a baseball game and this German Shepherd had some attitude and by that I mean it growled at me enough for me to stand a little farther down the fence. I don't know why animals like this are brought into the public because the owner thought it was the sweetest dog and that by growling it was saying it "Didn't want to play with me". Thanks lady.


Well it's been a tad busy lately because one photographer is on vacation and another is away on another obligation so our four-person staff has been down to two. Anywho, enough excuses, this is from yesterday. It's a fella that received a standing ovation for running to the aid of a local police chief after he'd been shot.

A reporter and I went to a DNR office the other day and no one was there. But being the snoop I had to stare in the window. Not that it would ever get printed in a newspaper but there was just something about this office. It's got all the makings of a classic Michigan DNR office. It has the Detroit Tiger player photos and a stuffed owl on the wall. I couldn't fit it in the frame but the chair at the bottom had duct tape on the arms.

This was from an event today called the Adair Suckerfest. It's a tiny town but they're serious about their suckers. Anyway, this is just a photo from that town.

Win Booze !

Welcome to Michigan

This is 78-years-young Delores. I took her photo because we're doing a story on how she's taking graphic design classes at the college. She also passed Algebra after taking it a couple times but she said they never had Algebra in high school when she was growing up. I think that's amazing that at 78 she passed that class and is doing graphic design.

There was a high school art exhibit opening yesterday in St. Clair and this is from that. There were lots of talented kids there producing amazing art. Actually, if you look, there's a picture of a fish (or whale) in the bottom right of the wall and I thought that was a cool one. I think because to me it was like an "underdog" piece. Something that you wouldn't expect to win a lot. So I love to cheer for the underdog.
The girl at the right in this photo made the grasshopper piece out of paper and it was out of this world, although it doesn't look like much in my photo. She won lots of prizes for her work.

Let's go Wings !

I was walking by the accounting department today and realized just how much they love the Red Wings.

Double Wide Grin

I saw this today while driving back from the softball game which was in the previous post.


Today I walked into the office and got my first softball assignment of the season which means warmer weather is around the corner. This photo came from the game which was in Deckerville, MI. Up in thumb country.

Baseball practice took place today so this is just a shot I took that probably wouldn't run but I took anyway.
