Update About Lack Of Updates

I have recently acquired a few added roles at work that has caused a migration of a few projects from my work desk to my desk at home.  I am now the de facto webmaster of the Liquor Control Commission and have undertaken a project to make the site more user friendly.  That is in its infancy stages, but I hope within coming months it will begin to look better.  I also have been tasked with leading a small group of staff to redesign the majority of the forms we utilize.  Between these two additional tasks that have a number of additional ancillary responsibilities that I keep realizing, I scarcely have had the time to get out and photograph much lately.  Today, I was able to spend a few hours outside, but opportunities like this are fewer than I would like.  Nevertheless, while I do not intend to post here for the foreseeable future, I shall continue to post photographs on my Flickr page, which you may view by clicking this link:

Old Vernor's Sign

A building was recently demolished on the south side of the 7500 block of West McNichols in Detroit.  An adjacent building sported a slightly faded, but still vibrant advertisement for Vernor's ginger ale.  Like the Faygo wall advertisement I photographed in 2013, which has since been vandalized, this piece of Detroit and Michigan history will probably not remain untouched for very long.  Click this link for the location should you wish to visit the sign before it is gone.
