On June 22nd I went out with Andrew of Detroit Proper Photography and my girlfriend Jennifer to see some more Abandoned Structures in Detroit. Our first stop was somewhere near Robinwood street, which has been dubbed as one of the most abandoned neighborhoods in Detroit. We didn’t stop there too long, as we were heading towards one more building and then exploring St. Agnes and the Brewster Douglass Recreational Center.
The three shots of houses seen below were shot in daylight but I found them to look much more interesting under pseudo-moonlight in some post-production.
Heading away from these houses we stopped at a building I do not know the name of that Andrew drove us to. One single shot I saved of the exterior of the building and one from the inside, as well as an experimental shot of a couch sitting outside the entrance marked with the word “safe.”
There wasn’t much to this building, but that didn’t matter. We knew we were on our way to St. Agnes in Detroit, which I previously explored in 2012 and was excited to see what had changed. We headed in through a rather unexpected entrance into the cathedral. During this brief visit Jennifer and I remained in this area while Andrew explored more of the school area. Below are the best shots I got from the vast empty cathedral.
Our last and final stop was by far our longest exploration for the day, the Brewster-Wheeler Rec Center in Detroit.
