I chose these photos based on all of them being in Black and White. Also that they are all taken in Michigan and of people.

Throughout these photos it really show a much simplier time. People doing things without their phones in there faces. Most of the photos I chose were based in the 70s & 80s to really show how it was in Michigan during that time frame. It is not often that you see a group of photos that are just from Michigan.
