Detroit, Michigan – This is a place where my roots run deep. A city I love because this is where five generations of my family are from, and it is the very definition of resilient. It has weathered the boom and bust of the auto industry, the scandal and corruption of power-hungry politicians, and so much more, but it’s still standing, still hustling, and making its comeback.
The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is “morning,” and I immediately thought of this photo. This is one of my favorite snapshots and I snapped it on my phone while driving down the road on the way to work one morning a few years ago. The rich colors of a late fall sunrise and the fog over rolling hills… as sunrises go, this was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
