Can You Help Me?

Photography is only a hobby for me. I’m not a professional photographer. However, I do enjoy recording my observations with a camera. Here’s a series of photos I began around May 9th of 2008.  Location:  Detroit – next door to the Metro Times building (near the GreekTown Casino).  Here is what I observed…

Iron Hands - Sculpture

On July 7, 2008 I returned to the same spot,  and took several more photos under slightly different lighting conditions. The iron hands in the sculpture, made me think about the Good Samaritan – and wonder about the street people…   “A certain man was beaten, robbed, and left half dead by the side of the road…”

Who did I help today?

What do you think about when you see these photos?

St. Mary’s Church in Detroit, near the GreekTown casino.

St. Mary’s was founded by Father Martin Kundig in 1835 for the German-speaking Catholics in Detroit, and is the third oldest Catholic parish in the city. The cornerstone for the original church building was laid on the feast of Corpus Christi, June 19, 1841. The cornerstone for this building was laid in 1884, and the edifice was completed in 1885. This High Victorian Romanesque style structure was designed by German parishioner Peder Dederichs.  St. Mary’s founded the city’s first black and Hispanic missions.
