    Not falling in either category, hope I'm still qualified to express my opinion. Gorgeous. Think I'll have to visit. Perhaps look into up the river as well.

    What a GORGEOUS composition! I love the greens and blues. It's just like a painting....just better ;)))
  • Tina 8y

    aww thanks girls!! see, i'm NOT the only one who sees beauty here. :)
  • ~btezra~ 8y

    I'm thinking about making the trek back to Detroit for the Exposure show, cuz I ain't no Detroit hater...
  • hannah webster 8y

  • Tina 8y

    craig--awesome!! you'll have to get ahold of me if you do--well i guess i'll just see you there! how fun!!

    I don't hate downriver. I just never got to know downriver. I'm sure downriver is a nice place, once you get through that thick fog of acid rain hanging over the coal plants.

    I have been to Lake Erie State Park... that is a very nice place to visit. Is that considered downriver?
  • Tina 8y

    merlin--i know. it does get "dogged" on a lot though....not a wealthy area, but good people and some great sites. i promise. i work there and like every place else, it has it's good and bad points. wyandotte is really artsy and when i stopped by the galleries and dropped off our flyers yesterday, the owners were excited and supportive. it's just an image thing and not being from "this" area originally, i'm able to get past it easier i believe. :)

    lk erie metro park--i used to live right next to it! seriously. ran through there at least once a day. it's nice, yes, and i suppose it's considered to be "downriver". it's a little further south than the usual area that's referred to as that though. :)

    you have your prints picked yet? i'm hoping to print mine today!!
  • dragonisis 8y

    I used to live in Taylor, graduated from Taylor Center :) Nice to see Wyandotte in a different light!
  • Tina 8y

    tanya-omg. small world! and you are moving to chicago, right? that's my dream!! cross your fingers for me and who knows, maybe we'll meet up there someday. :)

    and high 5 downriver girl!!!
  • Blue rain! 8y

  • Tina 8y

    shooting with my friend on Friday and Sunday....if something good comes from those shoots, then I'll have my final shot selections. I just got back from a framing shop in RO (Briggs Gallery). Because I have the IKEA frames I need mattes cut for me that fit standard print sizes, not the metric mattes they come with.
  • Peter Brake PRO 8y

    Love the beautiful colour throughout the frame..nice shot!
  • Ehm is shutting it down for a minute 8y

    What a cool shot! I have never seen it sot like this before!
  • inkyblack 8y

    great shot - very cool
  • dragonisis 8y

    If you want it bad enough, it'll happen. I just picked a date and said, I'll be in Chicago by this date, and stuck with it. But I definitely need to head back to "Taylor tuckey" to see some old friends, and its only a 5 hour drive I think from Chicago :)
  • Tina 8y

    thanks--all of you. this particular area holds some special memories for me. it was a gorgeous day to capture the blues in the sky and water.

    and tanya-you don't know how badly i needed to hear that.
  • Andrew McFarlane PRO 8y
