It’s Not This Time of Year Without the Detroit Turkey Trot!

Share the Love!I haven’t done a photo challenge in a while, so I thought I’d participate in the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “It’s Not This Time of Year Without…”.

Share the Love!Last week, I presented Good Life Detroit’s new weekly photography series: Detroit Street Photography. Today’s street photography captures are from Youmacon 2016.
