These aren't my pics, which is why the links are at the bottom of the photo, and why I said that I got them from Flickr. I just want to make that very clear as I always try to do.

Detroit would have a terrific skyline without the overwhelming RenCenter.

The fog does wonders to cover up some of the gaps east of downtown from the disinvestment/urban renewal/poletowning.

Lovely work everyone!
