Marche du Nain Rouge, Detroit 2017

DIA for a Day

Here are a few photos from a visit to the Detroit Institute of Arts last weekend.

My intention in this visit was to see and photograph Swoon’s “Thalassa,” which is installed in the Woodward entry way. I will be back soon to see the new Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate exhibit that just opened.



John King Books

On Halloween I had the day off so my best friend and I did what we loved to do, visit a bookstore. The king of them all is John King Books in Detroit. It is four stories of used books in every genre and topic anyone could ask or look for. The hand written sign and attentive staff make this place so special. In a world of shiny isles at discount stores, or super fast internet shopping, a this place brings you back to earth, to feeling, to exploring, to reading.

On Sunday September 27 there was a special lunar eclipse of a “super” blood moon. During the day I was out scouting locations for a wedding photo shoot, and at night I was home enjoying the warm night a lunar eclipse from the back yard. Here are a few of the photos that I took that day and that night.

When I photographed the lunar eclipse I did not have a great lens on me nor a great tripod, so I hand-held my camera, and as a result got some really ghostly effects. I like strange accidents like this. It think the images are super weird, and kind of wormy

Sometimes moments catch my eye. I love the colors. I love his hand position. I love how he is sitting off to the side, and that he is facing away from the camera.
