A visit to the Hyland/Kingson residence in Charlotte, NC, the home of two of my dearest friends, made me start to reconsider the way I think about a handful of things. Jim, Charles (that dashing specimen of a pooch) and I went for a walk in their beautiful, tree-lined suburban neighborhood one sunny afternoon and it was tough not to wonder how life would be had I made a few different choices along the way. I had an adorable dog on the leash and a charming, kind, tall gent walking with me through blocks of historic homes, greenery and fresh air.

So, we are backing way, way up... and I hope by going back to January, I don't get too far behind. There was a photo I posted a while back about a photo shoot done with Mr. Peter Zielinski back on New Year's Eve. I had said I was going to post more, but due to general photographer delinquency and my utmost empathy (sorry MSG boys, I promise your photos will come to you soon!), we are finally getting around to revisiting now.

It's quite remarkable, but there still is a possibility this stunning piece of historic architecture can be salvaged. To me, this is really quite exciting - almost unbelievable, but still exciting, no less. It's going to cost (as an estimate) somewhere between $80 and $300 million to complete this process, but plans are moving forward to restore both the roof and the windows.

This cross marks the center of the largest Masonic Temple in the world. If you are at all familiar with the practices of Free Masons, you know that each meticulous measurement is often accompanied by significance - be it historical or otherwise.

I am absolutely fascinated with Detroit. What it was, what it is now and the social and artistic underground that's working to not only restore it, but to make it better than ever. It is a hefty undertaking for sure, but it's simply beautiful.
