Three Days On, Three Days Off

Where I work is a wee bit different from where I live. Detroit is 150 miles South-East from my home just outside of Midland.  I make the commute once a week. I stay in Mo-Town for a three day work cycle then I turn around and come back home for three days of rest. It is yin-yang existence defined by its sharp contrast between inner city life and the solitude of the Pine River's woods and water.

My home town of Detroit was a manufacturing giant like the industrial cities of China are today. Now these factories lay in ruins around the city.

           The cement walls of these buildings are painted with the graffiti of a thousand unknown artists.
