      thanks everyone! I'd also like to thank FuzzyTek for getting myself and Rhonda Marie up there. We were Roving Detroit this weekend and ran into him, very cool of him to show us this.

      this photo result is 2 photos merged together and treated with some sepia and b&w and a border on picnik . Initially I didn't have plans to make it look old but shot this through a window, so the lack of clarity through the window sent me down this path of oldness...

      Thanks for your comments everyone
      Andy - thanks for blogatizing my photo, I really dig seeing a photo of mine up there from time to time, Michigan In Pictures

      Lovely, seen in Michigan in Pictures.

      Funny. I just digitally post-processed a picture that I really had no intention of meddling with due to the inferior quality of the photo.

      Always happy to blogatize!

      Nice one Paul. Really wide! The sepia really works after those old camera shots in your stream. Was wondering if this was from the Hawkeye or the Dual Flex , Sparta.....? Dizzying

      thanks mike, this was with the XTi
      2 photos stitched together and a little bit of photoshop

      Gotcha. Defintitly has a panorama or planet feel to it. Nice.

      Nice treatment Paul. It was my pleasure to share the location. I hope we can do something with that location.

      www.flickr.com/photos/fuzzytek/426947376/ is the shot I took of same - looks like we have nearly the same photo. Your lens was wider than mine though.

      thanks shqipo and Fuzz - remember, I had to stitch 2 photos to get this 'wide angle' !
