Forgotten Story


Well these photos are from a story that I knew finished, and never really started. I met a woman who did roller derby in Flint. Her daughter was thinking about joining as well. I wanted to focus on the mother-daughter aspect and the lifestyle of a derby girl... Rita was a vegetarian, health conscious, a mom and a badass...but I never got her to really trust me and let me in her life outside of practice so even though I knew there was a lot of potential for internesting photos, I didn't get the opportunity to take them. Maybe next time.

Dog Pull


Sandy Williams of St. Johns, Mich. coaxes her dog Pistol, a 16 pound Parson Russell terrier, to pull a wooden sled weighing 491 pounds at the United Kennel Club Arctic Blast Snow Tournament dog weight pull held in Luna Pier, Mich. Saturday. The event continues at Pier Plaza through Monday with dogs of all different sizes pulling up to 3,000 pounds. Dogs can earn points for the most body percent pulled. The dogs must pull the weight on their own for 16 feet in under 60 seconds.

forgotten photos

just some old photos I found while looking for some year-end contest stuff.

any thoughts on any of these? hate them? love them? think they should be cropped differently?

I'm mostly wondering about this 1st photo and the bottom two of the injured fireman. thanks!
