Couple of days ago I happened to drive pass this place accidently. The next day, I went back there with my camera. It's simply an opportunity I cannot miss. Nothing can be more iconic than this site. "Motor City Industrial Park"... it's definitely a movie-worthy site. I was simply fancinated by the texture of the broken glass windows, rusted metal walls and rotten wood. The size of this complex is unbelievable, and these set of photos definitely cannot do the justice. It goes on and on. Hpwever, this isn't the only complex of such size. On the way back we drove across a fly-over towards the freeway, we could see a lot more abandoned complex just like this, just as big. A friend who was with me asked how long has this been abandoned. I pointed at the top of the building," Look at that tree on the roof. That's how long it's been like this." The cops came and said that someone reported about people stealing scrap materials from the complex. It's obviously not us and the cops were nice. We did see a pick up truck leaving the complex earlier on though. One of the cops jokingly asked if we are going to buy this place. He's the second person who have asked this question. The first was a local passer-by. This series of photographs are so far my favourite, although it was a pity that I am not ready enough to step into the buildings. Bums, drug addicts, needles, rotten floors... But I am sure there's much more inside that want to be seen. While there, many questions were raised. How old was this? How long ago was this in operation? What was being made here? By the sheer size, how many thousands of workers used to work here? Where have they gone to? Will they ever come back? These questions represent the history of Detroit over the past century. I hope it's not what the city's future will become. There are a lot more photos here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v73/molested_cow/Motor City Industrial Park/?start=0 Pls feel free to check them out. BTW I bumped the saturation and levels on most of the photographs, just for your information.
