This whole stay at home thing has really put a damper on explorations this year. But I was in Michigan this last weekend and took a day off for myself. Detroit - You never cease to amaze. <3

All these pictures are so nice! There really are so many places abandoned. I especially like the Hello Kitty picture.

A city of almost 2 million turning into a city of barely 600,000 = the theme of your shots here. Eerie emptiness in what used to be one of the most vibrant and productive cities in North America.

As a lifelong resident of the area, it is tempting to say that I am "encouraged" by the development of Midtown and Downtown as well as some adjacent areas, but I really am not. Those areas have already priced out 90% of the American population, and the rest of the city is either blighted or empty (or both!). Not sure what the solution is, other than going back in time and trying to change most political and economic decisions made from 1940 onward. Or maybe cities and civilizations just have their time in the sun, and then that time eventually passes...
