Spartan Pride

And Christmas Eve morning was the perfect time to go down to get this capture, the weather was perfect and traffic in the downtown area was light. Aside from the security guard parked near by there was only one passerby who asked if I would take his phone and photograph him in front of this iconic statue.

Grosse Pointe Magazine work

Back in July my good friend Terry Minnis, the publisher of Grosse Pointe Magazine (http://www.grossepointemagazine.com) asked if I could cover the Edmund T. Ahee Jeweler’s (http://www.ahee.com/jewelry) annual Las Vegas Night benefit for the Capuchin Soup Kitchen (http://www.cskdetroit.org/) held at Comerica Park. How could I say no? My family orders our Thanksgiving dinners from the CSK to help with their cause and the food is great too. I spent the evening meeting wonderfully caring people and bought plenty of raffle tickets in the hopes of winning the Rolex but alas, I didn’t buy enough. Below are some of the many people that allowed me to photograph them, thank you everyone.

Thanks again Terry and John for the work!
