Motor City Getaway

Now for a brief, and hopefully not too boring, look at where we went during the holiday:

Detroit!

Detroit’s steady slide from industrial powerhouse to forgotten wasteland is well-documented, and for good reason.  It is an object lesson in the long term consequences of short term decisions writ large, but it’s also a beautiful place that is filled (or in this case, half-filled) with folks that have managed to find hope in what would to most appear to be a hopeless environment.

That said, I tried to focus my camera lens on the good and beautiful things in Detroit, not just the decay and destruction.
