Dr. Demray has been taking pictures for most of his life. Several years ago he opened up his photo albums for aspiring others to peruse. The photographic journey continues and once again authors are asked to take a look at the Doc’s photos and answer this simple question – “What’s the story?”

Short on Words has been well received across the state of Michigan – with participating authors from Northville, Novi, Livonia, Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, Gibraltar, Fraser, South Lyon, Grand Rapids – and several other cities across the state.

Dr. Demray is always amazed by the creative interpretations of the photos. Of course, he knows the nature of each photo firsthand. Demray enjoys reading the stories: “I am always surprised by the answer to “what’s the story?” in the eye of a talented writer.”
