i grew up outside of detroit. and the longer i’m gone, the more proud i am to call it home.
not many people who have never visited the city, or great mitten state would have any clue of just what a wonderful place it is.
detroit has the heart of a midwesterner, enough soul and groove to keep motown alive for centuries, and a little sass to keep things interesting.
i took this the night before i left town in july. i was driving from my dad’s house to my mom’s, staring at the sky the entire way. then i remembered that my camera was in the back. i pulled over along the 2 mile drive and tried my best to capture the feeling. this doesn’t even begin to instill the comfort and warmth of that moment.
went i was home for the week in july i decided to spend the day downtown taking photos. capturing what it is about detroit that consumes my heart.
i’ll post some of those, but right now i am craving this. this sunset. this 80 degrees at 10 pm. this warmth. and green. and homeness.
