    Okay, I tried my hand at a collage. Being that this is my first attempt, and I took these pictures with what could possibly be the cheapest digital camera ever (it was around $200, about 2 years ago), I'd have to give myself a B+. Enjoy. The Detroit Opera House View full entry

    Another site visit, this time I seemed to have focused more on the negative than the positive. At one time, this was a beautiful feature for this building, now it has become a hazard to pedestrians. What trip to downtown would be complete without a couple bums napping on a porch, after enjoying a... View full entry

    Wednesday we had our first site visit. Our site for the semester project will be a vacant lot that sits across from the Detroit Athletic Club and relatively close to the Boll Family YMCA, Comerica Park and Ford Field, and many other great downtown attractions. It appears to be the only undeveloped... View full entry

    The other day, I noticed some art on display in the gallery. I took a walk around to see if any of mine was up, and I came across these four photos that I had taken last year. My aim was to take these photos in the style of Man Ray. They were taken with my Minolta 35mm camera using 400 speed TMax... View full entry

    I was on campus last night to drop some things off in the studio, and I decided to take a walk around with my digital camera. LTU recently received a major overhaul including a new student services center and a redesigned quad. I noticed once I had walked through the quad that LTU once again felt... View full entry

    Sep 5, '06 3:18 PM EST

    Okay, it appears that this semester we will be focusing on urban design. This works out great for me due to my love of Detroit, or any city for that matter. The city is really where it's at. It's the heart of it all. We will be designing urban lofts somewhere in the city (I wasn't given the site... View full entry

  • Welcome Back

    By Chili Davis
    Sep 5, '06 10:05 AM EST

    After a long and relaxing weekend, today kicks off my first real week back to school. This semester will be quite a challenge for me, because this summer I started a full time job. I will, for the next 4 months, be performing a balancing act between the two. I've cut my class load a little bit... View full entry
