Detroit River

Took a long stroll down by the Detroit River today. The area beside the river and the Casino is probably the most urban you can get in the city, and even still it isn’t much. They’re doing a lot of unnecessary construction at the moment, leaving what used to be large fields of green a mass of brown sand.

A couple of Chinese fisherman take advantage of the soft sun to reel in a small catch.

A seagull eyes them for a chance to steal a fish.

A turtle basks in the sun atop a rock.

Certain other creatures also take up tanning…

…in more ways than one.

Flowers that have passed their prime and are starting to wilt.

Can’t get away from the manmade industry, regardless of how “naturous” a place may seem.

But sometimes the man can make something quite natural and beautiful too.
