For some reason I’ve always been fascinated with abandoned places and old buildings. There’s a number of different urban spelunking websites out there covering everything from discarded subway lines to condemned buildings for just about every major city, but I hadn’t found one for Detroit. That is, until I checked my referer logs and saw a link from the folks at idiot blog. The site’s owner gives the following summary:
- Photolog of an idiots journey through the ghettos of Detroit. Abandoned buildings, Urban Exploration, Infiltration. This site examines Detroit history and architecture, as well as documenting modern developments. See the post industrial Detroit landscape through the eyes of a complete idiot.
Sounds like my kinda guy and he’s got some great pics like the one of the old Atwater Warehouse to the right here. In fact he manages to detail both the best and the worst of Detroit in some stunningly simple photos that show an observant eye I could only wish I had.
Go check it out.
