Very Nice. Are all these attractions due to the Super Bowl?

The timing is based off of the superbowl. Most of the pics are of the Winter Blast festival, which this year is pushed back from January to now for the big game.

Detroit is long overdue for a great showcase and R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Yep, nice job. Detroit really did look good last week and this weekend. I'm glad so many people had such a great time! :)

Amazing pics! They have been flashing some fantastic Detroit skyline scenes tonight during the Super Bowl. Wish they would show more! Congrats Detroit, you are looking good.

Those are your's? Sorry about that, really.
February 6th, 2006, 10:42 AM
No I was sort of kidding. You saved me the trouble, and for that i thank you.

If you'd like, I will remove them from my post, anyway, so you can post the ones you want to post. They are EXCELLENT! Some are the best night time photos I've ever seen of the city.

VERY attractive dt area in Detroit!

No the ones you picked are fine. I like them all to be honest. I was fortunate enough to have somewhat decent weather thursday night because saturday was just miserable in terms of taking pictures. Thats ok though because I got to see more of the blast and catch more of the Twistin Tarantulas.

I can't believe a thread hasn't been started about this, so I'll post it here.
Detroit looked AMAZING on all the shots for the Superbowl. The recognition your city is finally receiving is long overdue. No lie, the only thing I heard on tv about Detroit was praise. Even the show "The Insider" ended their broadcast last night thanking Detroit, and congratulating the city on a job well done.
I'm sweaty with jeoulosy, good news all around.

Its amazing the reception the city has gotten. Cities that dont have half the problems Detroit does get ripped after hosting an event yet Detroit recieves almost nothing but praise. I think people were expecting the worst and say that Detroit isnt bad at all. A little TLC is all it needs to be a world class city again. Im still sort of in shock with how well everything went, i mean their were hiccups here and there but Detroit really pulled off a big one. The city has more momentum now then any time over the last 50 years, its exciting to see what they will do with it.

This is probably the one time that Detroit's "image" actually helped it.;)

Are FLICKr accounts free? If so, I may be able to get some photos up this weekend. :)
February 10th, 2006, 01:24 AM
Yes, they are free, but they have a bandwith limit for each month, but it's not that oppresive unless you want to upload multiple photo tours a month.
February 10th, 2006, 02:11 AM
Ok, cool. I'm just looking for temporary maybe.
November 14th, 2007, 10:26 AM
yup flckr is the best if you want to show off your photos. :)
