D is for Detroit

Welcome to Day 4 of the Blogging A-Z April Challenge!


Everyone talks about how bad & crappy Detroit is.  I'm not going there.  
This is all about the beauty of Detroit. 
The Riverwalk on a nice sunny day is wonderful!

This first bunch were taken a couple years ago.  Angela looks a like a baby (she's 15 now)!

The Renaissance Center (GM World Headquarters)

Closer to the Ren Cen

Looking across the Detroit River at Windsor, Ontario

Border Patrol Office
(lining up the lightbar on the patrol car was purely accidental - but awesome!)

Looking up at the Ren Cen

This is outside the Ren Cen - it's a map of the world with lights for the major cities.

Joe Louis Arena
(as usual, the Wings were in the playoffs)

bandstand behind JLA

Ok, I don't know if he has a Lions one.
