Detroit Rock City – literally

A couple weeks ago I celebrated Canada’s May 24 weekend with friends exploring abandoned and vacated Detroit with my new Rolleiflex E2 TLR.  We did the requisite tour of Packard Automotive, St. Agnes/Martyrs of Uganda Parish Church, the Lee Plaza Hotel/Apartments, Highland Park and Fisher Body 21.

I could have stayed in Detroit for weeks, the whole city is a photographers playground and after the sun sets there are wonderful places to get a delicious glass of craft beer.

These are not photos from the Rolleiflex (I’m still scanning my transparencies), but they are p&s snaps that hint at the magic of what is to come.
