Downtown Detroit seen from Windsor, Ontario.Penobscot Building, completed in 1928, seen in the background.

The Penobscot was the eighth tallest building in the world upon completion (566 ft or 173 m), and was the tallest building in Michigan until 1977, the year of construction of the Renaissance Hotel tower.

downtown Detroit Aug 2013

The "Murals in the Market" project begun in 2015 has sponsored about 100 artists from around the globe to create murals in the Detroit Eastern Market area. Another 50 artists will work in the 3rd annual installment in September 2017.

 

This building on Orleans Street, near Adelaide St. was painted by two Detroit artists. The flowers are by Ouizi, and the "Nothing Stops Detroit" by Ryan Doyle.

 

Detroit is in somewhat of a minor renaissance. At its height Detroit was actually called the "Paris of the Midwest", with booming economy in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Recent days have seen accelerated deterioration of Detroit, ending in bankruptcy in 2013. A slogan "Nothing Stops Detroit" epitomizes the current mood, with new construction and bright spots like Eastern Market.

   

we are here on a charitable mission.

maybe. seems to me you're just looking for money.

we do need money to survive in this world.

you know what they say: money is the root of all evil. what do you think about that?

yes, however, I have it on very high authority that it is not the evil itself.

we should thank god for that.

amen.

Representing some of Detroit's brands. I know there are more...

A night-time view of the city I am from. I love the lights on the Detroit river at night.

 

If you are visiting Detroit for photography, bring your passport. The best views of the skyline are from Canada (Windsor). It's not hard (or expensive) to cross the border for a short time.
