    this shot with the cars parked in the beautiful domed space is blowing my mind. i love the image in its own right and as a location—-awesome.

    I was just out there last month for the first time. Such a contrast to any other city I’ve been, it was surreal. I have some images up here: and here: Sean’s images definitely give a more intimate look though.

    My favorite city to shoot photos in. We just relocated from that area actually.

    The link is for Michigan Central Station – greatest urban ruin in the country, coolest building in Detroit.

    that’s a great collection of pictures. Slowly & slowly I have learned the importance of location scouting and keep taking pictures when I visit places, cause you never know when you need to be there again.

    I live in the area and love Detroit. Yes, we all hear the bad but there is a lot of good happening and a lot of good people.

    In sticking with the thread. This was one of the best to shoot…

    I would like to invite peeps to check out other photo work, that involves the people of Detroit. I have lived many places but downtown Detroit for the past 7 years has blown my mind. Trucks pushed out of buildings, weddings in the streets, fake grocery stores to encourage capitalism, etc,

I not really know what exactly everyone else on the planet is actually emotion, even so really do know which usually what they boast of being “love” is merely being and as with some other feeling the idea changes.
