High Definition Detroit 2.0
 
Looks like the old thread fell of the edge of the forum, so here is a continuating of random, high-quality photos of Detroit from Flickr:

absolutely awesome...especially the night pic and how you captured the firework exploding in the background...

i've always wanted to go to Detroit

LMich Sep 14, 2006 4:30 AM

These aren't my pics, which is why the links are at the bottom of the photo, and why I said that I got them from Flickr. I just want to make that very clear as I always try to do.

The photo of the Comerica Tower's crown is great. Thanks for posting.

I love that view of Midtown. One of America's greatest urban neighborhoods.

Detroit would have a terrific skyline without the overwhelming RenCenter.

Thank you for bringing these various photographers to the attention of SSP members.

Here is my own contribution:

The fog does wonders to cover up some of the gaps east of downtown from the disinvestment/urban renewal/poletowning.

Lovely work everyone!

Midtown's looking good though.:)
