Michigan cold case linked to Dayton area

Have you seen this woman? Police in Grand Rapids, Michigan said they received a tip that may link an old cold case to our area. They released a photo of Dean Pyle Peters at age 15 when she disappeared, and another photo of what she may look like now at age 49.

Peters' poster on the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children website

Peters went missing February 5, 1981 from a middle school in Grand Rapids where she was attending her little brother's wrestling practice with her mother. She was last seen walking out of the gym to go to the restroom. 

New tips have been coming in since Peters was featured as the February missing child of the month on the Justice Network. One of those tips came from someone who said she is living in the Dayton area.

Anyone with information should contact the Kent County Sheriff's Department missing persons unit at 616-336-3113.

Behind the Lens, A Photographer's Story-- AJC Photojournalist Ben Gray talks about his shot of lightning over Midtown Atlanta.

As storms rolled into Atlanta on Tuesday evening, I headed up the Downtown Connector (highway network system) on my way to cover a lightning-strike fire in Acworth, about 40 minutes north of Atlanta. Rain started pouring down, lightning lit the sky and traffic slowed to a crawl. I immediately realized there was no sense in trying to make my way to Acworth when I was in the middle of the storm already. 

Equipment: Canon 1Dx camera, 16-35mm f2.8 lens zoomed to 35mm, 13 sec, f/7.1, ISO 125

I pulled off at 17th Street and made my way to a parking deck, where I knew I would have protection from rain and lightning while also having a good view of the Midtown skyline. I jumped out, with my camera in hand and quickly adjusted the ISO and aperture settings for a long exposure while leaving the camera on the aperture priority setting. 

I didn’t have a tripod with me, so I balanced the camera on the wall of the parking deck, put my left hand under the lens to raise it up a little and hit the shutter button. To my amazement, the sky lit up with a tremendous bolt of lightning during the very first 13-second exposure. After sending the photo for use on this AJC story, I went back to shooting, but none of the photos even came close to that first frame.

A year after the death of her husband, Summers reached out to Laura Gordillo, the photographer who took pictures of the couple for their last wedding anniversary together.

According to Gordillo’s Facebook, Summers wanted to take pictures with her son in the same places she had taken photos with her late husband months before. She even planned to match the color schemes in the two shoots.

From there, Gordillo created a custom image of Summers and her son with her late husband, who was edited into the photo.

Gordillo said Summers loved the finished product and couldn’t stop crying.

Taurean, who was a paramedic, was on a plane that was transferring a patient to a caner center in Phoenix. It crashed in Las Creces, killing everyone on board.

“My heart broke to see what could have been, but at the same time, I was so happy to execute such a beautiful image for Stephanie and her son,” Gordillow wrote.

Gordillo has since received numerous requests to create similar photos with families and their deceased loved ones.

Sometimes as photographers we tend to get intertwined with the business aspect of our photography. That it is easy to...
