Something Devilish

Does something look weird in this photo?

Like maybe a face in the flames???

JJ Robinson, 8, of Flint, walks the rubble of a burned down house on the corner Hamilton Ave and Iowa as another home on Hamilton burns. The home was vacant, and two 13-year-old males are suspected of starting the blaze.

When firefighters are busy....

Before firefighters get to the scene Leith Street resident William Smith uses a garden house to try to protect an occupied house on Mable Ave. in Flint from catching fire from flames next door at a vacant house at 1625 Mable Ave. Smith stopped using the hose when it got to hot for him to help. Firefighters were busy at two other vacant house fires on Jane Ave, the next street over.

Happy Earth Day

Mount Pleasant Rave

I went to Mount Pleasant this weekend to chill with some friends, and we ended up at the most rave-like party I have ever attended.

photo of me by my friend Victor. I'm covered in soap, marker and bubble goo under a black light.

Come Hell or High Water

Bishop International

So Bishop is seeing more travelers and Detroit Metro is seeing less. It was really tempting not to get a ticket and fly off somewhere while shooting these!

Sunday's Best

Cliford Hughes, 11, of Flint, rollerblades on Begole St. in his Sunday's best suit after attending an Easter church service and eating dinner with his family Sunday afternoon.

I really like this photo, but I didn't turn it in since he is looking at me, but I did turn in some shots before he saw me. I thought feature hunting on Easter would be a little hard. I was lucky to find this kid!

Happy Easter!

Basketball Jesus on the North Side of Flint wishes you and your family a happy Easter!
On the third day, Jesus rose from the grave a made a killer slam dunk!

Flint Skyline

I couldn't find anything feature hunting today because it was raining, so I stopped to take some skyline shots instead. I drive this way all the time at night, but I'm never comfortable to stop, but I decided no one would mess with me too much during the day in the rain.

Flint has a huge problem with arson right now. I went around today photographing some of the houses that were completely destroyed. I thought this one looked pretty cool. All of the arsons have been at abandoned homes. A lot of them are on the city's demolition list anyway.

Pole Passion Fitness

We did a New in Town feature on Pole Passion Fitness in Flint Township this week. It was a lot more sweaty and a lot less sexy than I expected.
