A visit to the DIA

A walk thru just some of the galleries at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

And a few things that caught my eye.

The Cabin. October 2014.

Spent some time at the cabin with Dad before we winterized it.
It was a melancholy visit without Mom there.

Mostly, didn’t do a damn thing, and we didn’t get started doing it till at least noon.
I did somehow manage to take some photographs. Show me your surprised face.

No particular place to go.

So I’ll leave them here.

An assortment of photos from late summer/early fall.
Some from Proud Lake, some from home, some not.
