Back in 2011 I had a fun work project to photograph some of Detroit landmarks with an objective to make prints for the office. Boy, times have changed since then, some presenting big challenges. …. With recent positive news and good things appearing to be happening in “The D”, I’m encouraged and hopeful for Detroit! ….. Photo Editing software has also made great improvements, I’ve been enjoying reviewing and re-editing some favorites from my many photography outings to the Motor City.
Hopefully this blog of my visits to Detroit brings some fond memories to you. Enjoy!
Belle Isle was the very first stop, a great vantage of the city, especially at sunrise.
Here the warm breaking sun nicely illuminates the ren cen in sweet golden light.
Great light and calm weather can make for just the right conditions for images.
The Belle Isle Conservatory posed nicely! It will be interesting to see the changes and improvements to the Island now that it’s officially named……Belle Isle State Park
Had to try and capture the fountain!
Good timing let me catch this guy in the chair watching it! 🙂
Off to the motor city……
To me, this Ren Cen River shot paints a good positive image for the city, hopefully the new Mayor and the recently hired, no nonsense & kick ass Police Chief will bring the same.
Here’s the Ambassador bridge during sunrise with it and the city skyline being backlight.
Perhaps an Eastland Mall remembrance for former eastside Detroit residents. I like how the buses windshield reflects different light angles and the prominent Eastland and Griswold signs.
This cool eye catching mural is titled ….“Mano de Obra Campesina (Hand Of The Peasant Labor??) Located on the west wall of Hacienda Mexican Foods.
Lafayette or American?
Who’s ready for “two on one, extra chili & mustard”. Note the two hot dog cooks in the windows!
Ending with a few more of the Renaissance Center!
Thanks for visiting……feedback and sharing link encouraged!!
