image 14883

From my collection of photos shot from the window of a moving vehicle, this is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant whose name resonates in this age of George W. Bush. I reserve any personal comments on US foreign policy. I just want to focus on the scenes available to those cruising the (streets) of Detroit. This one is on Woodward Ave.

it's nice to see a post from somewhere other than montreal or houston (no offense to either of those city or their inhabitants)

shot from the window of a moving vehicle? check out this site, if you haven't already:

aer suzuki: cities, i mean...

Cosmo: 25th Aug 2006 - 22:04 GMT

aer suzuki, thanks for telling me about, I'll have a look. I've learned by happy accident that shooting while driving - somewhat dangerous - often yields excellent photos.

i toured the detroit stroh's brewery in august of 1972. before cosmo was born. i have a photograph of that somewhere around here. probably in a box in the garage

Cosmo: 26th Aug 2006 - 01:41 GMT

I dunno who joey is or how he gauges my age, but I was born before anyone stepped on the moon. And a bit before that, even. I don't think there are photos of my birth. If there are, they're black and white. ;-)

cosmo. i'm just an ordinary guy who grew up in cleveland and figures most people on the internet are young people. i wanted you to know i visited detroit once in my lifetime.

Cosmo: 26th Aug 2006 - 22:18 GMT

Glad to meet you, joey! Once in a lifetime is a good minimum to visit any place. 1972 must have been a tough time to visit, so soon after the riots and all. It's still pretty rocky around here but there are definite signs of rebirth. Perhaps some of that will be featured in my future photos...

Wherefore ART Thou, Ellis?

The amazing Ellis G struck Bergen Street, near 4th Avenue, one evening last week. It's always fun to come upon this artist's chalkwork on the sidewalks of Brooklyn, but the visual "echo" of this motorcycle, outlining the strong shadows cast...

Wherefore ART Thou, Ellis?
