“State Theater” – Photo Shoot

The State Theater is a historic theater built in 1946 with a modern Art Deco design located in the city of Wayne, Michigan. One of the reasons I love the Detroit area is there are many hidden gems that since I was a child have been slowly renovated over the years. The State Theater is now owned by Phoenix Theaters. If you are in the Detroit area it is about a fifteen minute drive from the metropolitan airport. I highly recommend it as you feel the history and enjoy a cinematic experience that is not easy to find these days.

I did a few different edits and these were my favorites.

Which one do you like the most if any?

“Duality” – Photo Of The Day

The Duality of Life and Death. ...

Duality teaches us that every aspect of life is created from a balanced interaction of opposite and competing forces. Yet these forces are not just opposites; they are complementary. They do not cancel out each other, they merely balance each other like the dual wings of a bird.

I struggle to maintain a balanced lifestyle like I am sure most of us do. Everyone walks their own path in life and in doing so I recommend if you haven't already found it to seek out your own ways to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
The closer I get to my own personal balance the more satisfied and happier I feel. It is a constant balancing act.
Family, Blogging, getting out in nature, droning, photo editing, creating, are ways I help balance my stressful day job as a social worker.

Please share in the comments some of your own ways you help maintain your balance.


Creepy Cryptic Cemetery – Video/Photo Of The Day

Video and photo shoot from a local cemetery.

As a child, my brother and I were fascinated by this graveyard. It was built in the 1800s and is a Catholic Jesuit Cemetery. A few of the graves carry the remains of Civil War soldiers. The crypt is located on a hill and houses a famous Jesuit priest buried beneath the floor.

I was fascinated when I flew over the crypt and saw the unusual letters "AMDG".

One of my smart historical colleagues let me know that the markings represented a famous Latin Jesuit Saying:
Ad Majored Dei Gloria: "For the Greater Glory of God"

May everyone rest in piece 🐼


Street Photo Of The Day

I love nature, but I thought I would change things up a bit and showcase some urban street photos I have taken. My daytime job gives me the opportunity to travel frequently downtown. I have seen a lot of positive changes in Detroit over the last 10 years. I truly believe it is making a slow comeback. The city is filled with many architectural treasures I have only started to learn about. Let me know if you would like more urban shots in the comments.
