where i stand sunday

Its one of the old churches of Detroit, serene and proud that it has survived when so many other historical buildings have not. The floor is worn, showing the scars of use, unabashed of its need for restoration. No surface has been spared use and adoration, showing no sign of bending under the weight of all its past and future service.

Where I Stand is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell. (The project is now in Year Three. Year One and Year Two can be found here.)
