Urban Dispair #1

Detroit, Mi

Absoluelty pure raw emotion driving down some streets around Detroit today. I hear the jokes, and the snickers about Detroit and "how bad" it really is.

It's real. Really bad.

I saw people on side streets and waiting for buses, dead eyes shuffling about, looking over their shoulders. Hope is something politicians talk about. Detroit, is a forgotten city, nobody's thinking about it...

Absolutley can not wrap my head around HOW anyone can even go about repairing that area. It honestly looks like a war zone...

Absolutly! I never saw so many burned out homes and stores. My husband is originally from Flint, MI. and it isn't much better. Shameful that it got that bad.

I agree with Brian, I have always wanted to go into abandoned buildings. Not to take away from your photo's, they do show a very emotional side of the United States.

forgotten detroit . com is a pretty cool website of urban explorers who go into these dwellings.

Going into that building to shoot would be fun. Great shots today!
