Full Moon Rising

What can I say? This was only the beginning of an amazing night in Detroit. As you'll notice I have on different shoes from the other "dangle" shots...yep. My "night out on the town shoes."


This shot was totally spur of the moment. As I was driving into a local parking garage I noticed the amazing symmetry of the "ramp up." The plan was to meet a friend from Windsor at 5 but there were delays at the I had some free time.


I couldn't believe I didn't think of this before as I'd been in this garage many times. There was no denying I would get this shot this shot, it was more of a question of who was watching and how concerned they might be (security cameras and guests in the hotel towering over me.) This shot was done in about 30 seconds total, from me getting on the ledge, taking the photo and off on my way.....In that short time, alarms started sounding off from below and I got super nervous cops were on their way. Luckily they were only car alarms, I couldn't help but think they were some kind of security alarm....."we got a jumper, send police and medical support" type thing. Needless to say I got out of there quickly. A fun little rush.


****...yes I bumped this one, but only because I posted it at like 3-4am.
