Ann Arbor, my hood, Lupe Fiasco, some downtown thrown in

Pulled an all nighter and it's a very slow day at work today. So I'm going to slap together a photo thread best I can with what I can find on my flickr. I'll add some more photos maybe later when I get home and after a long nap.

I present Ann Arbor, the Ace Deuce, A-squared, A2 and the University of Michigan

STATE AND LIBERTY DISTRICTS + UNIVERSITY

Lupe Fiasco, a hip-hop artist from Chicago. I hope at least someone on this board knows who he is.

Great photos! I agree with Top Of The Park: the color on these is fantastic. You've definitely captured the city well in this photo thread.

Great shots of AA.

What's the deal with that Lupe show; totally impromptu or what? Looks like he just showed up at some stairway and was chilling out, then decided to throw down. Sweet as hell. You got some wonderfully intimate shots of it all.

Great shots, as always. I really can't wait until we get A2 hooked into Michigan's newly planned transit infrastructure. It's been an island for far too long.

LOL, yeah he got teased a bit, but even Lupe admitted the kid had some talent. He was invited by the U of M Hip-Hop Council. They had reserved the plaza area in front of the library for some unknown reason far in advance, but only announced Lupe was coming a couple days prior. It was pretty cool and had a great turnout.

Thanks for all the great comments!


Btw, pic 22 never existed. I was just so damn tired I counted wrong lol.

I know who Lupe is.

Great looking college town. Ann Arbour looks like the New Haven of the Midwest.
