“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?

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 🐼


“Creepy Cemetery” – Video Of The Day

Wanted to try and create a something darker this month since Halloween will be here before we know it. I have to admit old cemeteries are quite fascinating to me. Walking the grounds springs forth a multitude of a variety feelings. Of course sadness is the most common, but also happiness.

Here is a stream of consciousness from my experience:

Dark, peace, rest, lovers, friends, warriors, sleeping, loss, grieving, empty, lingering, lost, pain, anger, sadness, good memories, moments in time, flickering, dust, earth, wind, memorial, rise, fall, leaves, rebirth.

Enjoy everyone 🐼
