Wanderings – Detroit

Michigan Central Station

Michigan Central Station

Detroit has always been a favorite city of mine.  Such a striking juxtaposition of splendor and decay.  I used to drive around for hours taking pictures and was glad to have a chance to wander around on this most recent trip.  So much is already changing.  These photos are a mixture of old and new.

    • Downtown downtown, its perfectly safe to walk around and take photos. Just use usual city common sense: be aware of your surroundings, don’t dress too flashily; keep your camera in your bag when you aren’t using it. The safety of the neighborhoods varies from block to block, so I’d drive around, park if I saw something interesting, and stay within about a block of my car. Better yet, go with a friend who knows the area, or find someone to take you urban spelunking. I have friends who’ve been and it looks amazing. ❤Detroit❤
