Detroit in Fog

I had a class down in the cultural district last night. I'm relatively new in Detroit, and somewhat unfamiliar with driving since BB usually drives. I also tend to navigate by landmarks. However, it was SO foggy (more so than the pictures indicate) that I could hardly
tell where I was going. It was really scary.

1)looking down Farnsworth street from the Scarab Clun (where my poetry
class was held.)
2)CVS
3)Looking down Mack toward auto sales (the light across the street--you can't even see the hundreds of cars.)

Thank you sol and Lady Demeter. I used to live in San Francisco. I loved the fog there, mostly. I love it here, too, except when I feel lost.

Wow, that must have been a little scary. Did I tell you, Mary, that I will spend three months in your country this summer?


If I'm not too curious, what does "adopt PB" mean?

Hi Marie,

did you say Connecticut? What will you be doing there? If you don't mind my asking . . . ?

It is closer to where I used to live than to where I live now.

PB is Piano Boy, my husband's son. We are having problems the required paperwork etc. Long story.

I love these foogy photographs! Especially the top and bottom, perhaps the persepectives of dissapearing in the distance.

I love the parking meters in the first shot: the fog hides the city and the meters look lonely.

Lovely photos. My husband navigates by landmarks too. The last time we were in Paris, I was driving and he said 'Just look for the Eiffel Tower......' :-)

A snow fog! Beautiful and eerie.

I'm going to be in Westport, in my friend Craig's house. Craig will be in South Africa for the most part of my stay in the US. He organizes photo safaris.
