f/11, 1/250s, 40 mm, ISO 400. Darkened sky, no other adjustments. This is in Downtown Detroit looking at the Renaissance Center from the courthouse where we went to get our marriage license. Tomorrow is our wedding and I will be busy today cutting cheese and vegetables, preparing salads, moving things and making last minute preparations. Have a great weekend--I may noit be on-line. Mary
