What a thrill -- one of the two pieces I submitted for consideration to the Scarab Club 101st Annual Gold Medal Exhibition was accepted!!!!!
Terri and Juana and I had a blast driving ALL OVER Detroit with Terri as our tour guide while we waited for the juror's results (for about 5 hours). Here are some of the photos from our day...
|This is where I dropped off my collage for consideration in the jurying for the show. (The collage didn't make it into the show.)|
|And this is where I left this guy. (This guy DID make it!)|
|One of the first places we drove to was Atomic Cafe in Hamtramck.|
|Then, since we were already in Hamtramck, Juana mentioned Hamtramck Disneyland...none of us had ever been there, so she GPS'd it and we arrived 5 minutes later...this is the approach to it...I have seen plenty of tight alleys in movies and tv shows, but I have never ever in my life actually been IN one...this was also quite a thrill for me...and I was mildly worried that there wouldn't be enough room to drive.|
|...getting all excited...we can see it!|
|This place is just crazy amazing...I wish I could do something like this at my house!|
|I thought there was just the one white and dark brown dog that was being so vigilant and alerting to our presence...|
|...but no -- there were two very vocal alarms.|
And a bit later in our travels, we had to do a U-turn to come back and take a snap of this alarming rabbit...and yes, it looks like he has xmas lights on.
|This house in one of the Pointes has a bunch of sculpture in the yard...but not as colorful or spectacular as Hamtramck Disneyland.|
