The Detroit Public Library Main branch was built in 1921 in the Italian Renaissance style by architect Cass Gilbert. In 1963 two wings were added.
The library system is the 4th largest in the country with the main building on Woodward Ave. and 23 branches.
The entrance, lobby and staircases were beautiful. In a second floor meeting room were spectacular stained glass windows. It was a real joy to photograph!
More to come....watch this space.

I stood in front of the library and shot these pictures from one spot

My beautiful granddaughter, Emma
Wicked step mother and sisters and poor Cinderella

Cinderella and the Prince
Please forgive my poor quality pictures. It is so difficult with the lighting to get a decent shot and Emma was across the stage most of the time. At least I got a few to remember the play.

Going to see my granddaughter, Emma, in her school play tonight and tomorrow bright and early we are going on a photo shoot to the Detroit Public Library, main branch. Looking forward to both but I miss everyone in SC...I miss them all and the flowers and birds and sun and the ocean. In a sense it is good to be home but all the hassles were still here waiting for me.
Hope to get some photos edited on Sunday and make a start on our newsletter as well.

There were about a dozen turtles sunning themselves this morning at a pond at Brookgreen. It's been a few days since anyone has seen the sun!
My first butterfly of the season...a Black Swallowtail.
Goodbye beautiful Brookgreen!

Finally got up early and it paid off. I said goodbye to the ocean and was greeted with some beautiful skies. I am so sad to go. I will miss all the beautiful nature here in South Carolina. I will miss, most of all, my family who has treated me so well and made me feel so welcome.
Driving on the road to the nature center I spotted this Bald Eagle.
Around on the boardwalk side, there he was, overlooking the salt water marsh. He is but a speck....
and here he is from a speck to a dot with my meager 300 mm lens.
