Spartan Pride

The Spirit of Detroit dons a Spartan Jersey to show support for the Michigan Sate Spartans football team on their way to the 2016 Cotton Bowl to take on Alabama.

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.

Spirit of Detroit says: Go Lions!

With the Lions in the play-offs, the Spirit of Detroit came out for the game sporting his very own Lions jersey. So, how could I not get his picture and he was a great subject too! He patiently sat very still in the cold, under the subdued lighting, with light rain falling and let me capture his team spirit.
