I have been at work putting some more photo series together, and over the past year or so I have really gotten to know and respect the city pretty good. As soon as I finish school (if ever) and get my head straight, my goal is to move into the city. Most people I know think I'm nuts and that Detroit is a rough place to live, blah blah blah. But I really can't handle the suburbs anymore. To bland, boring, uncultured, and cookie cutter for me. I need to live somewhere with history, buildings, actual architecture, atmosphere, etc.. Anyways, as I sit up here in Mt. Pleasant (about 2 hours north) I can't help but laugh at some of these people. I was just at the gas station, and there were these 2 kids, I'd say 16-19ish in age. Baggy jeans, bright white and super clean Nike basketball shoes on, huge coat, one had a sideways visor on, the other a backwards Detroit "D" hat on. Ok, these kids are from MT. PLEASANT. What's with the act? The closest thing to an actual urban lifestyle or ghetto is Saginaw or Flint, which I'm probably sure they haven't been. What is the mentality of people who are trying to be something that they are not? I bet if you were to drop these kids off in any given neighborhood in any large US city, they would poop their baggy pants. Seeing these people makes me want out of these place right away. I don't even see people like this in Detroit, and they actually live there day after day, year after year. Anyways, that's it for now. I just felt like typing something.
