Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

After years of commuting long distances to work by car and subway, I can now walk to work.  And what’s even better, I take the skywalk from my apartment through wonderful interior spaces, past two hotels and a convention center.

Then, I pass through the DeVos Place Convention Center with soaring architecture and an upstairs gallery with rotating exhibits.  At the far end of the gallery, you can see the Grand River, which I pass when I exit the building, and cross a bridge in the last few minutes of my walk.  If I want, I can also buy a Starbucks along the way.  All together, it takes me ten minutes.  Do you agree that this is an ideal  “commute?”
