Me and Gracie down at the Train Yard

On my trip home my siblings and I went on a photo safari in downtown Detroit. Not knowing how much longer this beautiful building will be in our lives, our first stop was the old Train Depot. We packed an old mink of my grandma’s as a prop.

We went down to find the Ambassador Bridge for some more photos

Hangin’ in the D

Last week I took a few days off work and went home to the Detroit suburbs for a visit. Naturally I brought my camera and subjected my family to multiple photo safari’s around the city. Here are some shots from the afternoon/evening I spent downtown with my mom before celebrating a late mother’s day.

Aah the People Mover, all two cars of public transit glory…

The train station. There are block letters across the top that say “Save the Depot”. Sadly, I did not get a good shot to share.

On our way to dinner in Corktown we had to stop at the old Tiger’s Stadium. It was pretty cool, they had basically cut the thing in two.

I have no idea where this door went but it made me laugh so I had to add it into the post

We had dinner at Slow’s – I had some pretty AMAZING pulled pork, the ribs weren’t bad either 🙂 On a separate note, living in Chicago has totally spoiled me on the whole no smoking in public buildings. I’m just glad the weather was nice so we got to enjoy our meal outside, smoke free!
