When Your Sister Agrees to Do Street Photography With You

I was really excited for my mom, sister, and nephew to visit us over Thanksgiving holiday. It was my sister (Lisa) and nephew’s first time visiting Detroit and our new home, sot it was a pretty big occasion for us. But another reason why I was excited to see my sister was I wanted to take her out to do street photography with me. I wanted to show her the places I like to go in the city for photography and I wanted her to see the reason why I love photographing Detroit.

Lisa has a pretty sweet camera collection. She has a Canon and Nikon DSLR with a few prime lenses. She brought her Canon with her for the trip. Unfortunately we didn’t get to go out to the places I wanted to go for photography because the weather turned really cold. Lisa isn’t accustomed to Michigan winter weather as I am, so instead we did a brief photography walk in Eastern Market. But even though our photography walk was brief, Lisa said she still enjoyed the mural art and getting a glimpse of Eastern Market.

Lunch at Supino’s Pizzeria

Before I gave my family a tour of Eastern Market, we ate at Supino’s Pizzeria. Supino’s is well-known for their Detroit-style pizza. My nephew was amazed at how large the pizza slices were. When he picked up his first slice, he exclaimed it was “ginormous” and it was the biggest piece of pizza he had ever had. My mom also really enjoyed the pizza, too. She said she loved the thin crust.

We were fortunate to go to the pizzeria after their busy lunch hour. Supino’s gets pretty busy. Most times when I go the line is so long that people are literally standing outside of the door to place an order. Is it that good? YES! It is that good and worth the wait!

Photographing Eastern Market Murals

After lunch, I took my mom and sister to see a few murals in Eastern Market. The sun was starting to set, so we were only able to see a few of the murals. I explained to Lisa there are so many murals in the Eastern Market area that there was no way we could view them all before the sun set. It was also very cold outside, so we didn’t spend a long time outside.

The cool thing about the experience, though, was the area was practically empty so she was able to photograph the murals without traffic getting in the way. Since there were not very many people hanging around Eastern Market, we focused on photographing the murals. I hope Lisa will visit us again in the Springtime so we can do more street photography and I can show her the other murals at Eastern Market.

I love colorful buildings. They have a lot of character and make for cool photographs.
