Motor City

 While in Detroit a few weeks ago, we stopped by an
abandoned car body plant to see the remains of early 
automotive industry in the city known best for it.

 It was a popular spot for sure, judging by the several 
other explorers that popped up while we were there 
and the Quikrete that had been poured in this collapsed 
section of cement to create a small skating area.

The distant windows on one floor cast an eerie aqua light 
on the space's graffiti covered pillars and stalactites.

Going up, things got more interesting both art and structure-wise.

 The top floor housed most of the factory's remaining tracks, booths, 
and ventilation shafts used to move and paint auto body parts.

The area is now re-purposed for painting of another kind.

The roof was massive and had a fantastic 360 degree view of the city.
I loved the shapes of the pipes and vents jutting out from the building.
