This week's Photo Adventure...
View of downtown Detroit, Detroit River, Michigan.
My hometown. Well, kinda - I live about half an hour north of there, in a small yuppie town. (By small, I mean at least twice the size of my largest local 'city' here in CT.)(And yes, this was taken while on our boat... did I mention yuppie.) Detroit has a tendancy to breed loyal people - look at Kid Rock and Eminem as a small example, an album doesn't go by for either of them where they don't have SOMETHING to say about it - and I am much the same way. Despite that fact, right now Downtown D is a terrifying place to be, and is ranked one of the most poverty striken, most depressing, and most crime-ridden places in the States. I have thankfully so far not been mugged/raped/murdered/jacked/set on fire when spending time there, but that day will probably come. I love it anyway, who couldn't love the Motor City? Yes, even with the collapse of all the giant auto makers - which is why I am lucky enough to own such a nice truck. Thanks, crappy economy!
