I'm feeling overwhelmed looking through all the images from the last week. So I'll start with this one from the Heidelberg Project in Detroit. I spent a day cruising around Detroit starting with the restored Book-Cadillac (!!), Belle Isle, then onto burned buildings and empty lots where family houses once stood, and in the middle of it all you turn a corner and there it is - a colorful city block of art created by Tyree Guyton, adding beauty to the saddness of this side of the city. I love it, my mom wasn't so sure...smile. I've photographed this house a few times and looking back through the last 6 years it makes me sad. Downtown there is a sense of growth and restoration, then you drive east and you are reminded otherwise.

Check out the Heidelberg Project website.
