Detroit Video Daily was pleasantly surprised regarding one of its photos. Let me explain. DVD has a Flickr set called Detroit, MI USA (I know not very creative, but oh well, it works), and just today a Flickr user named "On Being" added one of the recent photos to a Flickr gallery they created. The gallery can be seen if you click here. Upon looking at On Being’s profile, I discovered that it is a group from the public radio program On Being that curates the online gallery. I’m not familiar with the program, but it sounds like an interesting show, and I plan on giving it a listen. In case you didn’t click on the above link, this is the photo of the Virgin of Guadalupe that they selected.

I happened to be on my way to pick up some tamales from Tamaleria Nuevo Leon when I saw the painting. (If you like tamales and haven’t been to Tamaleria Nuevo Leon, you should definitely stop over there.) Here is a photo of their shop.
By the way if you’re in that neighborhood, you might as well head down the street and around the corner on Bagley to Honey Bee Market, La Colmena. They have incredibly fresh produce, and items that aren’t found at the chain grocery stores. They also have a deli and are known for their Mexican chorizo sausage.
