Detroit at Dawn 30 Floors Up


Let's get together and shoot the city skyline from a very high vantage point...30 floors up! One of our members (Tina) has very generously offered her beautiful view of the city for our use on Saturday June 29th. Dawn this time of year is quite early...5:56 AM! So you'll want to be there just after 5:00 AM so as to catch the city in all its' pre-dawn beauty. We can pot-luck share coffee, juice, fruit and danish for a quick bite to eat after sunrise before setting out to explore the downtown area in early morning light. We'll need to bring paper plates, cups, utensils and napkins. Just email what you'd like to help out with! SPACE IS VERY LIMITED FOR THIS SPECIAL SHOOT...SO DON'T WAIT TO SIGN-UP! I will email address info and instructions to all attendees prior to June 29th.
