Here is the second installment of our “People and Places” project. This time Seth was on places duty while I made pictures of people. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy putting the whole thing together.
Seeing the ground from 700 feet above, things look a bit different. The earth looks like colorful patchwork of greens, yellows, blues and reds. Neighborhoods look like miniature toy play sets, and cars on roads look like micro machines.
I’ve had the pleasure of riding in a helicopter twice, both being able to photograph what was below me. This time however, I rode in the front passenger seat with a bubble-front that perfectly lended itself to shooting.
Here are some of the best images from above.
Muncie, Ind. is akin to Detroit it seems in the amount of abandoned houses, factories and weird places in general. Last week I shot what must have been a bustling hub of activity during its prime. This place is huge, and with nothing left inside it seems all the more massive. It reminds me of the factory my dad used to work in when I visited him a few times when I was young. I always wanted the chance to photograph him in his welding booth, but never had the chance before he retired.
So here are a few of the images from the day, and I hope you enjoy.
The beginning of the summer tends to lend itself to having a bit more free time, and time to get some shooting done that I’ve wanted to do for a little while now. My pal Evan and I decided to adventure out on another Blight Watch today, and see what we could come up with.
Visiting an address that we had previously been to, an abandoned Coke-a-Cola factory, and also going into a house that we had not been in before were the tasks for the day. It was a pretty nice little afternoon, and got some decent shots.
More to come, but this is a pretty good start.
Not too long ago I had the opportunity to photograph a three-day music festival playing host to a variety of national and local bands. Music ranged from bluegrass bands to experimental rock music held on three separate stages. It was a great time, and being able to go for free because of being with the media isn’t such a bad thing either.
The scene looked something like this: Sounds of live music, crackling fires between near and far off conversations from people camping at the Waterbowl in Muncie, Indiana. Here are a few images that I like the best.
