"Berried" under a bridge

I took this photo under a bridge in Detroit. Mainly I'm interested in identifying that berry vine growing along the ground. If you think you might know what anything else is in this photo, let me know. Even wrong suggestions often lead to some interesting finds.

When did you take the pic? Might be a Lonicera.

I took the picture mid September last year. It might be Lonicera. But that led me to look at other things, including Solanum dulcamara (nightshade). What do you think of that idea?

I think you may be on to something with Solanum, especially with that other shot of the leaves. Solanum dulcamara (nightshade) was everywhere when I lived in OH, maybe in MI too.
