Graffiti

Hey Ladies,

Thursdays have become Girls Explore Night for myself and a friend of mine. My friend is a hair stylist and we've been trying to find interesting places for her to shoot for her flyers and business cards. We have made a vow to explore the city of Detroit and outskirts in hopes of finding nice food, poetry, comedy and more eclectic places around our city other than just the "club".

Before we settled in for Open Mic Night, we asked a few bicyclers if they had seen some graffiti any where. They let us know it was a ton of it along the Dequindre Cut. We had never heard of this area and didn't even know it existed.

The Dequindre Cut Greenway, an urban recreational path, officially opened to the public in May of 2009. The 1.35-mile greenway, developed through a public, nonprofit and private partnership, offers a pedestrian link between the Riverfront, Eastern Market and many of the residential neighborhoods in between. source
Fave Pic! I just wish I would have had on heels!!!!

So we ventured out to find the graffiti walls, and we were amazed at what we saw. It was a beautiful trail, a hidden trail that we'd discovered for the first time. It was so beautiful. I had to take photos there. I can't wait to go back and capture more of this art. As we didn't have time to walk the full path.

Loved the Architecture!

  Just like last week, I wore this outfit to work too. Next week I plan to "nighten" up my outfit a notch. LOL

Blazer: Thrifted   Tank/Sunnies: H&M   Skirt: NY&C   Sandals: Target   Bag: Bitten   Necklace: Aldo
I LOVE this shot. so DOPE!

Loving my camera more and more each day!

 I loved sooo many of these pics and it was sooo hard to narrow it down. I still have tons that I didn't post.

I cannot wait to see what hidden gem we find next week.

Thanks for reading!
P.S. If you're still wondering if my new camera takes good pics. I think these speak for themselves! :)))
