Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.

Muslims gather outside federal court in Detroit to denouce terrorism as Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the man charged with trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane on December 25, pleaded not guilty to six federal charges.

Mission Statement:
To document the city in an attempt to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people.

Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.

Great picture, Ralph. You are right on top of events! I saw this report on TV yesterday. Do you work in journalism?

@David: No it was just very convenient for me to be there. I was actually on the way to shoot the snow on Belle Ilse when I noticed all the news trucks. I was aware of the event but had no idea there would be a protest. When I first arrived there must have been 300 members of the media and about 3 protesters, that was amazing to me. I went to Belle Ilse and came back just when things were heating up.
