+Giles McGarry asked a question on flickr about this shot that I think is relevant to post here too. He thought this skywalk was curious because it connects a newer building with one that he thought almost looked derelict. I always thought it was strange to have a skywalk that high up, connecting two very different buildings. Rather than taking the time to type this out again, i'll just copy and paste my answer here:

"The building on the right is not derelict and is one of Detroit's amazing skyscrapers. However, this image doesn't necessarily do it justice. That's the Guardian Building, it was built in 1928 and is an excellent example of Art Deco architecture. The building on the left is newer, in terms of Detroit architecture (built in the 60s). That building was designed by Yamasaki, the same architect who designed the World Trade Center. I always thought this skywalk was kind of strange, connecting the top floors of two very different buildings. I just did some research on it, and apparently it was built for a company that had offices in both buildings. That company is no longer there, so I wonder if it's even used still. Anyways, I think there is something symbolic to this about connecting the old with the new that applies to a lot of what is going on in Detroit right now."Photo: Industrial-Stevens apartments | DetroitPhoto: meetingPhoto: Photo: infinitePhoto: infinitePhoto: infinitePhoto: infinitePhoto: infinitePhoto: infinitePhoto: handheld, not a long exposure...the clouds just had that lookPhoto: fractionPhoto: 3000

Winter doesn't allow much time for daytime long exposures, especially when it's dark when you get out of work and you like to sleep in on the weekends. However, the past few weeks have sort of forced me to get back into night photography. I am enjoying the possibilites with shooting architecture at night, and the unique light and contrasts it offers.

designed by Minoru Yamasaki, also architect of the World Trade Center. This was his first skyscraper, and he used elements from this design for the World Trade CenterPhoto: X Photo: ChicagoPhoto: insomnia architecturePhoto: 211Photo: Chicago. 2012
