Detroit at Dawn 30 Floors Up (part deux)


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 July 6th. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS MEETUP IF YOU'VE ALREADY SHOT FROM TINA'S APARTMENT!

    To all of the "shooters" your images look great...keep them coming.

    Thanks again Tina for so very generously sharing her beautiful view with us! We had a good fun group show up this morning for a sunrise that wasn't...But the view was still spectacular and the low hanging clouds made for some beautiful compositional possibilities! The rain held off until we were just about done so overall Mother Nature was somewhat cooperative!

    July 5, 2013

    • Debbie M.

      Mother Nature did tease us with some nice pre-dawn color, if only briefly. Beautiful view in all directions. Thank you so much Tina for your hospitality and Jack for arranging this unique opportunity!

      You're very welcome, Lenette! Joya is a very impressive young lady! It's wonderful to see young people explore their creative visions! I look forward to seeing her photos!

    All thought there wasn't a sunrise, the predawn cityscape was still impressive and walked away with some very nice images. Thank you again Tina for hosting this event!

    I am very embarrassed but my alarm clock did not go off...what a lame excuse that must sound like. I feel a little better that I saw just now that 6 spots are available which means I didn't keep someone else from coming. So sorry.

      Yea sorry I will be out of town on Saturday :(

      July 3, 2013

  • Sandy J.

    If anyone will be coming from the Rochester, Troy, Royal Oak area, I am interested in carpooling and I could drive.

    July 3, 2013

  • Patrick M.

    I'm so excited to be off the wait list! Now for the next challenge:

    I'm one of 'those' Ann Arborites who does not own a car (or TV...). So I'm hoping to get a ride from downtown Ann Arbor if anyone has room and it's not too much of an inconvenience. Of course, I'll pay for gas and parking for the day. Just let me know if this works for anyone.

    Thanks,
    patrick

    1 · July 2, 2013

    • Patrick M.

      Someone can have my spot too:-( with the event so soon, it'll be difficult to arrange a ride. Besides I don't want to be too optimistic and then not go. It's best if another person on the wait list get to go.

      1 · July 3, 2013

    • Patrick M.

      Have fun and thanks Tina for being so generous with your time and space! next time.

    I will need to go to work after the sunrise shooting, so I don't have much time for a walk. And there is a question. Where is the nearest parking lot or we can park our cars in front of the building?

    July 2, 2013

  • Amy M.

    Thanks for the reschedule. I'll bring pastry. Where is a good parking spot? Are we meeting somewhere and going up to Tina's together?

    July 2, 2013

    hi guys,
    thanx for signing up for part two of Detroit sunrise shoot.
    Hopefully the weather will be a bit better this weekend.
    Just a heads up after the sunrise we can go on a photo walk of the surrounding area.There is so much to shoot on the streets below.
    Then head down to The Spirit of Detroit statue,"The Fist" and finish up shooting The Guardian bldg. 1920's art deco lobby (the guardian doors don't open until 9:30 and the main shop are at 10:00.
    When in the Guardian lobby please be aware of the tenants coming and going due to the fact they are open for business.
    thanx again and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
