If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.
~Mark Twain

While newspapers and television stations are probably crying today, most of the rest of us will probably be relieved to see the Republican primary in the rearview mirror at the end of the day. Get updates at our Primarypalooza on Absolute Michigan.

Check this out big as the sky and in Ralph’s Digital Goodness slideshow. Does Michigan in Pictures have more shots by Ralph? Yes, I believe we do!!

MacArthur Lock No. 4

With apologies to Richard Harris, Donna Summer and pretty much everyone…

The captain took the Spruceglen, through the Soo
Ralph has a Holga, on trips he often takes it
It uses film and doesn’t fake it
Which isn’t always the easiest thing to do

Check it out bigger and in Ralph’s The U.P. – Autumn 2007 set (slideshow).

R.I.P. Tiger Stadium

June 9, 2009


R.I.P., photo by Ralph Krawczyk Jr.

Ralph writes:

Supporters of renovating what remained of Tiger Stadium surrendered Monday in a failed court effort to postpone the final demolition, sparking the end of a legacy that began in 1896…

You can read about the demolition in the Freep, watch it on YouTube, check out other Tiger Stadium pictures on Michigan in in Pictures and read Tiger Stadium stories on Absolute Michigan). You can also see more photos of this iconic park in Raph’s Tiger Stadium set (slideshow).

I’m not sure, however, that you can explain to me why Detroit seems hell-bent on demolishing its most prominent pieces of heritage.

The Future turns 100

February 20, 2009

The Guardian Building

The Guardian Building, photo by Ralph Krawczyk Jr.

The Futurist Manifesto by Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was published on February 20, 1909 in Le Figaro. Futurism rejected the past and celebrated speed, machinery and industry … and also war, violence, pollution, misogyny, the triumph of technology over nature and likely influenced fascism.

Futurism influenced many other twentieth century art movements, including Art Deco, Vorticism, Constructivism, Surrealism and Dada. Futurism as a coherent and organized artistic movement is now regarded as extinct, having died out in 1944 with the death of its leader Marinetti, and Futurism was, like science fiction, in part overtaken by ‘the future’.

Ralph says that this is a 1 minute + exposure with cable release Holga modification. Best viewed large. You can do that in his Holga Goodness slideshow. You can learn more about The Guardian Building in Detroit from Michigan in Pictures.
