The People Mover Structure at night


The "People Mover" is a monorail type thing above the streets in downtown Detroit. I took this picture of the structure the People Movers travel on Saturday night. We were not at home yesterday and I am behind on commenting, for which I apologize.

Makes me think of the "atmosphere" in some films by Scorsese.......

Stumbled upon your blog randomly! I'm across the river near Windsor and cross the river many times a week. :) My husband's business is based in Detroit. There are so many foreclosures all around his area. So sad to see.
Lovely blog by the way!

Oh, I didn't know Detroit has a monorail. Does Detroit have a subway too?

I'm not sure if the People Mover is actually a "real" monorail and I don't think we have a subway.

Thanks for your kindness in visiting and commenting!!!!

The people mover looks like what they use at Disney! This is rather an eerie photo, though...

He he Thanks Jacob! That's why I TOOK it! Tee hee! :-D

I may try to paint it.

Very "noir"...

Thanks, V! :-D

This photo and the one above could inspire a detective short story.

Oddly, I've started novels on just such a disparate collection of photos.

And you're right, these could work, along with the one above that.
