The long vacant Michigan Central Station. Finally seeing some new life after decades of neglect. The Ford Motor Company has recently purchased the property. I was privileged to be invited and get some shots in.

 

This part of the building was the depot where the trains departed and arrived. I’m hoping that it’ll be a train station seeing that freight trains pass through here occasionally. It’s not too far from the train tunnel in Southwest Detroit.

Michigan Central Station: constructed in 1913 for the Michigan Central Railroad & was closed in January 1988 following the cessation of Amtrak.

A rainy day in Detroit and a new road surface provided some interesting reflections.

The sky wasn't that color of course, but while editing it a little, I liked how it came out. This is the back view of the historic Michigan Central Station in Detroit. You can just make out that a lot of the windows have been replaced, so work is slowly but surly still progressing. Since I took this photo there has been quite a bit of progress in fixing this old beauty up, it is looking pretty good.

This building has since been renovated....or at least is still in the process of being renovated.

I'm ready for that walk, stanley.

great, edna, let's go.

ok. I'll just put on my sandals.

work boots?

preferably steel-toed. and a helmet.

to go for a walk?

it's just a suggestion, edna.

maybe I should grab a flak jacket?

armored, if you have one.

this walk sounds like it'll be dreamy.

that's one way to put it.

While I was exploring with friends and enjoying the impending sunrise, scenes from Batman vs. Superman were being filmed across the road at Michigan Central Station.
