This is the GM Renaissance Center. I quite like downtown Detroit - it has a quite a mix of contemporary, classic, the more dated looking facades. 2018
GM Renaissance Center
The GM Renaissance Center, a very famous landmark in downtown Detroit, made famous, perhaps, during the 2008 financial crises given its symbolic representation of a flailing auto industry. 2018
Directly across the Trenton from Detroit lies the relatively sleepy city of Windsor, in Canada. Compared the U.S. metropolis, this places looks like a backwater. 2018.
GM Renaissance Center Riverfront
Sunset creeps up behind the GM Renaissance Center; the iconic Detroit towers on the Detroit River shoreline. 2018.
The GM Renaissance Center - perhaps a symbol of a depressed motor industry in Detroit - these ominous looking towers dwarf anything else in the city and, to me, have a kind of intimidating and dominating appearance.
It's a long way to come to find a Mississippi style riverboat in the Great Lakes. This is the Detroit Princess, moored on the dock in Detroit, on the Detroit River, with the main crossing into Canada visible in the background. 2018.
Hart Plaza and Jefferson Avenue
Hart Plaza and Jefferson Avenue; a series of towers and what looks like a dormant water feature near the riverfront in Detroit. Lots of flags on this side of the river; i noticed just one on the Canadian side. 2018.
This artwork is known as 'Transcending' and is a tribute to the Labor Movement. Perhaps it is fitting to see such a monument in the city of Detroit, long something of a bellwether place describing the fortunes of this demographic group. 2018.
Always been fascinated by the steam being vented in the NE American cities - often wondered what actually was down there. This is Detroit, on a cold Spring day. 2018.
I walked around Detroit the night before, looking for good locations for a shot of the GM Renaissance Center: those ominous auto industry towers that grab the Detroit landscape. This juxtaposition of old and new seemed like one of the best vantage points. 2018.
Detroit Light Trails
This seemed like a good spot for some light trails, and a local bus happily presented the perfect subject. It was a very cold night and I was having trouble with a new tripod, so I was reasonably happy with this effort. 2018.
