I was fortunate enough to be able to take a 2,600 mile journey to Detroit….a place I like to call “the motherland of all things abandoned” lol. Oh my word…I surely was not disappointed!! In 3 days of exploring, I took about 3,000 photos! Whewwwwwwww…busy girl! Those photos got filtered down to the best of the best. About 600 images I felt were edit worthy.
Needless to say, I have only edited about 200 lol. Yea…I’m kinda behind on my editing. Well hey, what can I say. I’m always exploring and gathering even more photos to edit, and I’m a mommy and a new wife and have a full time career. Sometimes I have to cram in editing marathons on the weekend lol.
Anywho, back to “the motherland” haha. I had strategically mapped out about 8-10 locations that I wanted to hit. I made plans to meet up with an Instagram friend Aaron (@doctorhaircut) one of my days there and we hit the ground running! We were like a well oiled machine 😉 In a matter of 3-4 hours, we hit about 4-5 locations. One of them was this amazing school.
The beautiful decay that was around every corner was almost enough to make me giddy inside! I’m pretty sure I couldn’t stop my smile if I tried haha. Words cannot even begin to describe the decay and the beauty. Hopefully some of my pics from this Detroit series, do it justice.
