Abandoned Images

I’ve been living in mid-Michigan for a hair under seven years now. In that time I have ridden thousands of miles of dirt and gravel roads on my bike. I have also passed a certain abandoned home and farmstead many times and over that time I have taken a number of photos of the home, the barn, and the various vehicles that litter the surrounding property.

Starting Again

Does soccer really ever end? Fall season, tournaments, winter training, spring season, state cup, tournaments, tryouts, a month off. Then practices, tournaments, new season…  To answer my own question–not really.

Flat Trackin’

In the name of trying to better myself and grow as a photographer, I have found myself in some odd places this summer. From standing in the mosquito infested woods shooting grass roots mountain bike racing on a Thursday night; to the stands of a rodeo at the Isabella County Fair; to most recently, trackside at a flat track motocross race at the Polka Dots Motorcycle Club on the outskirts of Midland, Michigan. All of the events posed a variety of challenges to me as a growing photographer, and they were all entertaining to shoot and to spectate.

Saved With Black & White?

Over the past two weeks, I made the 20-minute drive south to Alma, Michigan to shoots some photos at the Thursday Night Alma Mountain Bike Time Trial.

I tried a different location and found myself fighting with the light (and the mosquitos) and shooting at a super high ISO. It felt like a huge waste of my time.

Salvaging A Ride

My ride this past Wednesday was extremely lackluster. I didn’t eat a proper breakfast (a hard boiled egg, coffee, and some almonds), and my legs were just dead. The air was thick, the sun was hot, and I had nothing. I thought that the initial mile of climbing would wake my legs up, but it only served to make it feel worse.

At The County Fair

For just the second time in my life, I found myself at a county fair. I really dig seeing all the pigs and the cows up close and not caked with mud and bodily excrement that I normally see them caked in while I’m out riding on the dirt roads. These show animals are amazingly cared for and it was cool to mingle amongst them and see them being fed, brushed, and even shaved by their caretakers.
