“ann arbor news reporter stan bradshaw

leaves building front door for assignment, september 1948″.


this old news image reflects the one we often had of intrepid reporters, hot on an assignment, giving us the latest news of pinnacle events in the life of ann arbor. there was a certain quality and reliability to the news and its staff, bringing us the best stories and photographs available. the photos still resonate with the innocence and spontaneity of life and those living it here.

“journalism keeps you planted in the earth.”

-ray bradbury

to all the journos out there, still finding a way to tell the story.

 part of my aussie family

was visiting here in

ann arbor, michigan, usa

from

bunbury, western australia

and 

by chance

 went to a local county beekeepers meeting

with 

some of my family who live here

where he 

came face to face with

his doppleganger.

both with

 yellow shirts

same

glasses 

hair 

beard

eyebrows

smiles

face

age 

mannerisms.

just

crossing paths 

and

finding themselves

in exactly

the same time and place

turned and talked 

and then

went their separate ways once again.
