Being young is full of challenges and situations that give you self doubt and nervous feelings full of fear. Sour wells up in your stomach as you sweat with anticipation of the start and the possible outcome at the same time. I believe the key to staying young is to seek out those situations that challenge you like this. Your level of nerves may be different than when you started a cross-country meet at age 16 but the mechanisms of growth can be the same. Proud of my son challenging himself everyday. @grant_theoneandonly #crosscountryrunning #running #dominicphotography #ddominicjr

My daughter and I got a last climbing session in before she heads off to college. She’s not headed far and there is a gym in Ann Arbor so we’ll still be climbing but this session seemed significant. I had planned on all the serious talks of responsibilities, life changes, managing fun, blah blah blah. As I watched her move, laugh, struggle, and succeed on the wall I realized I had already had the important talks with her. All the training was done. She was as prepared as one can be for the next pitch. Go Margaret. Go Blue. Climb on. #victors2022 #gymclimbing #rockclimbing #ddominicjr #dominicphotography #planetrockgym @mdominic10 at Planet Rock, Madison Heights, Mi

I love the fair. I grew up showing horses in 4H and the county fair was always the culmination of a year of hard training, discipline, and fun and the last hurrah before school started. Bright lights of the midway, sugary elephant ears, smell of horses, feel of baby goat fur, and the crashes of a demolition derby all made for a sensory nirvana. #countyfair #geneseecountyfair #carnival #ddominicjr #dominicphotography at Genesee County Fair

Albuquerque Rail Yards have a wonderful little produce, artist, craft food market on the weekend. This is not the wonderful part but a very beautiful building in its own way. #albuquerque #newmexico #architecture #geometry #ddominicjr #dominicphotography at Albuquerque Rail Yards

In the summer of 2004 I asked my local record shop purveyor for something new and good. He handed me Drag It Up by the Old 97s. Since then the Unholy Trinity (the young guy, the old guy (me), and the older guy) have worked every possible way to play Won’t Be Home acoustically together and we’ve been to every Old 97s show in Detroit as well. The show Friday night was killer with shout outs to Elmore Leonard and also the Michigan story behind the song Let’s Get Drunk & Get It On. Great time with my mates and our ladies. Thanks @old97s @rhettmiller and company for the memories! #old97s #elmoreleonard #buickcity #rhettmiller #kenbethea #murrayhammond #philippeeples at The Magic Bag

We summited Wheeler Peak, NM a few days back. It was my first trek with a new mountaineering partner and her first big climb. She was a natural and set a pace that had me scrambling at times. She exhibited all the type 2 fun symptoms: “wow, this is cool”, “we have HOW much farther to go?”, “I’m cold. I’m hot”, “I think that goat is going to stampede us” and of course, some tears of pain and joy. When all was said and done she said, “I meant what I asked at the top, which one are we doing next?” I’ve got a keeper, but I already knew that. @rockerchicnik42 #wheelerpeak #newmexico #trekking #moutaineering #summit #type2fun #climbingpartnersforlife #partnersforlife #climbing #hike #hiking #daytrip at Wheeler Peak

Good morning from New Mexico! Curious for life. Take the time to slowly journey, observe, and reflect. That’s how I like to travel. #taos #newmexico #curious #donkey #dominicphotography at Taos, New Mexico

Colors are muted in the New Mexico desert, except for the sky, it’s always a deep blue that we usually only see in the fall in the north. #newmexico #bluesky #campertrailer #lonely #home #americana #blue #dominicphotography at Madrid, New Mexico

This land is a mixture of textures and contrast exists everywhere. Everything fights for your attention until you relax and let it all flow into you, very much like life. #newmexico #clouds #raysoflight #roadtrip #americansouthwest #mountains #dominicphotography at New Mexico

Chasing Walter White. Stumbled on this driving across New Mexico. Not only is the landscape bizarre but the clouds are too at times. #newmexico #walterwhite #iphoneography #dominicphotography #rv #clouds #roadtrip #americana at New Mexico

The U.S. is huge. You can drive a hundred miles in places and not see a soul. Prairie land in New Mexico can seemingly be the same for hours but the subtle differences register like small changes in the monotony of everyday life, those little things that if you take the moment to actually pay attention are magical. One thing that is always omnipresent are the power lines marching through the expanse searching for someone to conquer. #newmexico #prarie #dominicphotography #powerlines at New Mexico

From my large format light painting series. Large format slide film (cross-processed). Large spot lights on unlit buildings. This is the old Michigan Theatre in Detroit. In its heyday it was a gorgeous theatre. Now it’s a parking structure. It served as a location in Eminem’s film 8 Mile. #michigantheater #largeformatphotography #crossprocess #detroit #dominicphotography

Lots of activities here at the #michigancentralstation in Detroit this week with Ford having purchased it. I made this image in the early 2000’s. As an abandoned building then it was unlit and I wanted to make some night exposures using a technique called light painting. Open the shutter on a large format 4x5 camera, use a couple million candle power spotlights to “paint” the building where I want illumination, close the shutter. Viola. Light painting. #detroittrainstation #dominicphotography #detroit #lightpainting #itsabandoned

Making songs on my Daddy’s porch on a cool northern Michigan night. Funny how when you’re young you want to fly the coop as soon as you can and then, you grow up and coming back to the coop is the most relaxing thing in the world. #gretschguitars #resonatorguitar #dominicphotography #happyfathersday #acousticguitar #guitar

The old Michigan Central Station in Detroit. It’s been abandoned since the ‘80s but Ford recently bought it. Somewhere in the early 2000’s I snuck a 4x5 film camera in there and made a bunch of exposures. From an upper floor we later watched the cops haul away some other trespassers. The building was a location for Transformers and a bunch of other movies during the Michigan film boom. I snuck in one other time but will always treasure making photographs in this building with camera technology from the era it was built. #largeformatphotography #filmphotography #detroitcentralstation #detroittrainstation #dominicphotography #itsabandoned #detroit at Detroit, Michigan
