take a seat

    Abandonment has plagued even Detroit's finest neighborhoods and structures, and this shuttered church is no exception. This church, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, was a casualty of the recent foreclosure crisis, which has seen the surrounding neighborhood littered with shuttered structures. There were, simply, no more people left to fill the seats.

      The church would be full if it was a house to praise Geoff George.

      What a beautiful church this has been. But why would they just close the doors and not remove any of the things from inside? Were they thinking it was just temporarily closed? Great shot!

      I hope they offer a guided photo tour through detroit in the future. It's very inspiring to see these photos of aged shabby but once splendid architecture. sometimes the witnesses of the shiny days are more interesting then the boring present. i hope i will get there some time, too.
