It is quite nice indeed
I like a lot Detroit's Art Deco skyscrapers - they are beautifully decorated both inside and out, though many of them are in urgent need of a restoration.

Hey there,

I thought that by this time I could post winter pictures, but it turns out that this year snowfall is at a record low. I will post some pictures from last fall, perhaps in the meanwhile I'll get luckier with the weather.

I will start with photos from some corporate areas, then move to commercial and residential districts. These pictures didn't make the cut the last time , but there is enough Metro Detroit in them for those interested in the subject.

The forests are still here, and plenty of wild animals too.

White balance should have been corrected, there is a red tint in these pictures.
