Twenty Days

The moon above my house one evening.

Found this still life in a break room at the Castle Museum while I was shooting painters restoring the windows.

An action figure head on the ground in the alley behind my house.

Stumbled upon some kids biking on the river walk one afternoon and got this silhouette.

Went back to the Castle Museum a few days after my first visit to try to get a better shot and I came away with this.
They opened a new jail in Midland and let people into certain parts to tour the facilities after the ribbon cutting. I was waiting for a shot on the top bunk in one of the cells and this lady started talking to me when she realized I was in there.

We did a fall color feature story and this is one of the images I turned in from a forest just south of town.


From the interstate on the way to the Detroit airport.

This was another fall color feature I turned in that I found driving some back roads between Saginaw and Flint.

One of the gypsy dancers in Zingara, a dance troupe at the Mid-Michigan Renaissance Festival.

Another one of my fall features. This one's from a farm east of town.

I've seen Fall in full force over the last few weeks here in Saginaw; colorful, cloudy, rainy, cooler and shorter days, plus the end of the regular season for high school sports. Here are some of my favorite images since my last post.

Two Weeks

Skateboarders in Old Saginaw City.

My first time shooting hockey, the Saginaw Spirit vs. the Plymouth Whalers.

On SVSU's campus outside of a building where I was shooting an assignment.

Kids going home for the day at Carrollton Elementary School.

I had to shoot an antique festival in Midland, it turned out to be more of a flea market but I was lucky enough to stumble upon these dancers.

I do not usually like the way it looks shooting football with a strobe, but this one came out ok.

Marchers walking down E. Genesee in downtown Saginaw during a rally and march against violence in Saginaw, partially sparked by the recent killing of a 9-year-old boy.

The Midland Dow High School swimmer that won the 100-yard butterfly at the Tri-Cities swim meet in Midland.

I'm still trying to nail a good vertical panning shot of a diver since I can't use my lights.

An Essexville Garber High School swimmer in the 100-yard backstroke at the Tri-Cities swim meet in Midland.

On my way back from Midland I went on a drive through some rural back roads and found this railroad bridge just south of Saginaw.

Flew down to Kentucky for a few days last week, been back in Saginaw for well over a week now. Here are some images from the past two weeks, personal and newspaper assignments.
