Detroit Video Daily (DVD) is a blog I created to share things I discover and find interesting in the city of Detroit. In my posts I include videos, photos or other multimedia to express my view of life in the city. There's also a Youtube channel and not so active Flickr page and Instagram.

Known as the Motor City, Motown, and the 'D' — Detroit is a fascinating place, and like an endless urban garden there is always something new to discover. I hope you enjoy your time here and encourage you to subscribe for free updates in order to not miss one bit of the DVD goodness! 

If you would like to contact me please use the contact page, and send a message. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Copyright and Media inquiries: please use the contact form to contact me before you use screen grabs, my videos in whole or part, or photos.  I most likely will give permission to use my material, and I may even have additional footage or photos that could help you with your project/story.  As a creator, I hope to reach many people, but would like to protect my work. Thank you! :)

Thanks for the visit, and all the best from the beautiful city of Detroit!

  1. Roger, pretty good first effort! Didn't know that you were there. My friend Jim, a UAW member and rep, was there too; he participated in the march before the speech.

  2. When was this photo taken? Sept. 2011?

  3. Hi,
    I had to go to the Flickr page to check. The photo of the lighthouse is from the William G. Milliken State Park, and was taken on November 4, 2011. I remember it was nice weather, and I stopped by in the early evening on a Friday. Not sure but I may change the photo on this page every so often. What do you think?
