I thought this would be a fun little game heading into the weekend. I tried to have them up earlier but our internet was down for the afternoon.

Landmark quiz. I think collectively there's not a spot in this city we couldn't name....street level. Can you name these spots from the air?

#1) The only change to this photo: I removed the school lettering from the center of the football field.

I took some pictures yesterday evening on Wealthy Street. I can't believe how much the area around Wealthy & Diamond has improved in the last two years. Now the Wealthy Street Market just needs to be redeveloped and that will be one of the nicest intersections in the city as far as aesthetics are concerned.

I'm sure it's been mentioned elsewhere on this site but this was the first I knew of Brick Road Pizza Co.

EAA has its Ford Tri-Motor at Gerald R Ford International Airport. I went up this morning and snapped a picture of downtown. I hope this is the correct size.

Off in the distance...

PLee,

Are you able to clean this photo up? Please send it to me, I'll work on the color.

Oh and next time these guys are in town, Dad said I get to go too...

Thanks Bro,

RLee

I cleaned it up a little for you....it's sitting in my Flickr account (and it's clearly not my photo).

If you want it taken down, just let me know.

here you go...

It's interesting to note that none of the Medical Mile developments are in that picture. Downtown is certainly spreading out.

I really liked the way a lot of my pictures from Sunday night turned out so I'm posting more.

I love your new pictures of Grand Rapids. It's been about 4 years since my last visit and I'm looking forward to my next one. From the looks of things, I will find much that is new and/or improved.

Thanks for sharing the GREAT pics!
