Old Poletown fire

On the way to the Detroit Jazz Festival for an assignment I took a short detour to follow the plume of smoke billowing up from the city’s near east side. This time it lead me to an abandon house fire in Detroit’s Old Poletown. Somehow the colors and light just fit. Here are some Instagram edits of the photos from a short detour.

Detroit City Football Club

In Detroit City Football Club’s (DCFC) inaugural season, the minor league soccer team, saw crowds up to 1,500 spectators at their home field, New Cass Technical High School in Detroit. Supporter groups like the Northern Guard Supporters with 722 members by the end of the season and Motor City Supporters fueled the stand of fans with music, chanting and smoke bombs.
