Even the ruins in Detroit are beautiful and have soul. I don’t like to spotlight the same photos you see over and over again of that which was once a palace but now lays dying as the economy, weather and decay take its toll. If any of those are among what you see here it’s only that I still find them beautiful.

These places are only what my camera passed as we raced from meeting to meeting during a one-week trip at the end of April, 2013 to lay groundwork for my epic Detroit project, “The D“, which I hope you will support by dropping some coin here. And there are many more photos of Detroit here and here as well.
