As Detroit transitioned into full-on summer, it almost seems like not much happened in the city last week.

Okay, not quite. But a lot of the news was in the negative: Jimmy Hoffa wasn't found, Detroit didn't go into bankruptcy (or sell treasures to stave it off), Mike Duggan didn't challenge his disqualification from the mayoral race, the jury couldn't come to a conclusion in the case of cop Joseph Weekley's shooting of a 7-year-old and Max Scherzer didn't end his winning streak.

Whether newsworthy (let's not forget the announcement of a new arena for the Red Wings or SEMCOG's approval of controversial freeway projects) or not, we saw scores of great moments captured on film this week. See below for our favorites, including an adorable photo of a happy chimp at the Detroit Zoo, a shot of the supermoon over the Joe Louis fist sculpture from reader Dan Foley, (Instagram: Bigdanfoley) and a scene of the crowd at Detroit's new downtown beach.

And as always, follow Foley's lead and send your best shots to the HuffPost Detroit editors.
