About the Image(s)

This month's image is from the recently restored Michigan Central Station. This building was built in 1913 and served Detroit with railroad service until 1988 when the last Amtrak train left. The building was left abandoned and the scrappers picked it clean of many treasures. A local individual had purchased the property but never developed it. In June of 2018, Ford Motor Company purchased the property and began a one billion dollar restoration project. This restoration has spurned a huge redevelopment in the area. I'm attaching a link to share this wonderful story.

Ford Motor Company had a concert to celebrate the opening of the building on June 6, 2024 featuring Diana Ross and Eminem.

I went with a group of club friends and was able to capture some of the interiors. This small hallway was photographed with my Olympus and 12-40 lens as a handheld HDR, 5 exposures and processed in Lightroom Classic and Topaz Photo AI.
