Ruins of Detroit

Captured: The Ruins of Detroit from the Denver Post photo blog. I found the images of derelict and abandoned old buildings sad, moving, disturbing even. But definitely emotive, and therefore worth a look. What stories were once lived in these places? What factors led to their demise? What sadness, what life has once upon a time thrived inside these walls? And how will their loneliness inspire you?

Even in it's current state of there is so much beauty...the clock on the wall...the photographs, all haunting remnants of what was...once upon a time..

I agree with DalaHorse...even in ruins...there is beauty.

Kind of reminds me of the scripture where God makes "beauty from ashes".

The second picture though, the building windows on the lowest level truly look like they are weeping. Beautiful work in the photographs themselves, but in the compilation of them here.

I love the curiosity and lonely feelings abandoned buildings create in my heart. We have all felt like these buildings look at some point, or at least, I have. It makes me want to reach out and freeze more moments in time.
