Wow what a crazy Friday night! I was working for the Det News last night and my first assignment was suppose to be a Snoop Dogg concert but that was cancelled because there wasn't a photo pass set up for a News photographer or something, I'm not sure. So I went to the Michigan State Fair to get some night shots which was my assignment tonight for them. I got there and was shooting, feeling like I was struggling to get some interesting shots. Also I must have looked creepy or something last night because three different times I tried to get the names of people I photographed and they said no. Anyway I get a call from the photo desk saying I needed to leave the fair and go to Pontiac for a battle of the band the News was sponsoring at the Arts, Beats and Eats festival. So sped up I-75 and got there in time for the last 2 or 3 bands and got the winner. I needed to transmit these photos to the photo desk before going to my midnight assignment at a bar in Detroit. But when I got in the car and could hear again I had a message from the reporter saying , "don't go to the bar its cancelled." So I got home, sent the band photos, everyone was happy and I got to bed earlier then I thought I would. I do still have to go back to the fair for more images tonight.

Almost a cool shot, I liked the hand up by the guitar. But I was to far with to short a lens held up and it was a little soft focus wise to submit to the paper, oh well, close.
