Angel, Elmwood Cemetery, with details. Elmwood Cemetery is located off Mt. Elliott Street, off Jefferson, not too far from downtown Detroit. It's a very old cemetery, and pretty. If you click on the labels link on the bottom right, you can see other pictures from Elmwood Cemetery.

Three from the Heidelberg Project. The Heidelberg Project is all about Folk Art. It is always fun to visit and see what they have done new since our last visit. What you cannot see in the second picture is that the tires form a spiral maze into which you can walk for a close view of the art. The third picture is a detail from a larger collage sculpture on the top of an old wrecked car.
I was give this award the day before yesterday by Asta (Thank you, Asta) and today I am awarding it to Old Man Lincoln's Bird Blog, which I love to visit. Hopefully, I will give out some additional awards in the days to come. Abe Lincoln does not do blogger awards, and I am thinking about opting out of them myself some time soon. But that doesn't mean that in the meantime, I can't give him an award. He just won't post it. Which is fine with me, I just wanted to mention that I like his blog.

We went back to Elmwood Cemetery in part to recapture the name of this church, which we'd lost. So here it is, directly from one of their own signs.
The Calvary Baptist Church is in the entrance to Elmwood Cemetery.
Yesterday I received an award from Asta. I'm honored and happy that she thought of me. YAY! Thank you so much Asta!

We also walked at the Heidelberg Project and I may post some pictures from there in the next few days as well.

Renaissance Center, Looking up from Inside. This is the jewel of downtown Detroit. See more images by clicking on the Renaissance Center label below right.
Have a great weekend!
(My pictures are not posting the way the look on the screen before I post them--they are bother brighter and duller (less colorful or saturated) on the blog--any ideas how to save them?)

A Glade at Kensington Metropark, as seen from the Deer Run Trail. This is for Goda, who was hoping for a picture of Kensington. I'm sorry I could not capture or locate a picture of the lakes. Maybe sometime soon. I LOVE Kensington! Suck a beautiful park!!!
I ortonized this picture again, it gives it a misty feel. If you click on the Kensington link under labels below (or here), you can see more pictures from Kensington Metropark.

This canal goes along the side of the park at Detroit Metrobeach and boats come and go into Lake St. Clair through here.
This is a test of posting larger pictures. It's not as clear as the original, but I think if you click on it, you can see it clearer? I think it's TOO big for its size?
Thanks so much to Jacob at Ocala Daily for all his help in my attempting to post bigger pictures. I don't think I ahve the bugs out of it yet. But I'm making progress.

in an evening stroll. The Lake is Lake St. Clair. Some locals are
petitioning to change its status to a great lake! (It is pretty big,
and part of the great lakes system.)

The Aquarium at Belle Isle in Detroit WAS the oldest still active aquarium in the country--but now it is closed. The building still stands and there are rumors it may reopen--I hope so. This is an archive photo. I have been otherwise engaged today, an ironic situation when I just won an award.
Yup, I won an award today from Jacob and Lois! See below for more details:
This prestigious award is given to a photo blogger who exhibits exceptional photographic skills in terms of artistic creativity, composition, sharpness and exposure. It is awarded by Jacob and Lois at Ocala Daily Photo. I am DEEPLY honored to receive this wonderful award. Jacob ad Lois have a number of lovely blogs of their area in Florida and one of Paree! I hope you will visit them and check them out! THANK YOU JACOB and LOIS!!

the Longfellow House.
The Detroit image is the base of a sculpture at Cranbrook. This was
my guess at how I might feel driving a sullen teenage boy to
Whitehall. But it didn't turn out that way. Read more about here.

Cranbrook (here at home).
I had some misadventures yesterday. This will explain why I am behind on commenting--I will try to catch up soon.
