The Casino at Belle Isle

The Casino at Belle Isle, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. The original Casino was built in 1887, and the current structure was redesigned by Albert Kahn in 1907. It was was once said to be the finest casino in the United States. It is now used for a meeting place.

In case anyone was following my "daily" photoblog on a daily basis and noticed a lapse, it was because biker buddy accidentally cut the internet cable with the hedge trimmers Thursday and I haven't had any internet connection. Sorry.

Quelle jolie lumière, Mary....

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Very pretty lighting?

Thank you, I love the lighting just at dusk! :-D

Yes, you understood what I wrote :-))

I mentioned your Imagik blog on Abraham Lincoln's blog. Do you sometimes visit it? It is great. Abraham is great too!

I liked the comment on our politicians. The president I mentioned has been in power for over 30 years. In Montpellier we are still living under the "Ancien Régime."

Politics is a dangerous subject. I am very opinionated but sometimes fearful of alienating my friends.

I like REAL democracy and honesty!

Marie said...

Ah ah I think real democracy and honesty is a utopia. :-))

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

In other words, impossible?

I hope not?

Are people inherently evil?

Sometimes I wonder. Piano boy's bicycle was stolen yesterday and that got me going on human nature. Again.

Well, if it is a utopia, it is one worth working toward, even if it is unattainable!
