for all of you detroit haters.

see, it really is beautiful. and no, there are no dead bodies down there either. meanies.

and for all of you detroiters who are down-river haters (you KNOW who you are!), notice that this is in beautiful Wyandotte. so there.

    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.

    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?

    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!!

    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.

    Love the beautiful colour throughout the frame..nice shot!

    great shot - very cool

    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 :)

    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.
