Detroit Railroad Club Open House

Twice a year, the Detroit Model Railroad Club in Holly opens its doors to the public to help raise money and show off their artistic skills in miniature form. I took my Sony A7ii and the 50mm f/1.8 to get some classic miniature shots.

Despite being over 30 miles away from Detroit, that’s where this club got its start and moved up north casing cheaper rent. Eventually they bought their current building and will stay there for the foreseeable future. I think these shots will make a great addition to my long term project of documenting my hometown, so stay tuned for a zine or book resulting from that work.

Throwback Thursday: Peel Monument

Peel Tower in Bury, UK

I took this photo with my iPhone back in 2016. It’s a snapshot of the Peel Monument in the north of England with the leading path in the foreground. Despite being a bit cliché I really like this photo since the weather was perfect, the clouds add a bit of interest and separation to the background, and the people to the right help give a sense of scale. Everything sort of came together to make this thoughtless shot worth something.
