I thought I’d show a collection from Instagram here, of a day out in London, in order to record them in a more permanent and ordered fashion. I’ve been experimenting with the Darkroom app for iOS now that VSCO got an iffy UI, and enjoying it. It’s got a better UI than Snapseed and seems just as powerful. Saving in place in the camera roll is also a nice change after using VSCO and Instagram for all my editing for a while.
Liked this composition even with the graffiti in B&W.
Really happy with the way this came out.
Different shot of of the graffiti from part 4.
Great old lettering on this old auto shop.
Cool lettering both in the sign and the graffiti.
Excellent spirits and an excellent sign.
Wonderful restaurant in a former pawn shop.
Grab bag of Detroit images taken on black and white film with my Yashica D TLR. Some are from the same UrbEx tour as the previous posts, while a few others are from other random Detroit trips.
Loved the light on this abandoned chair.
This destroyed piano is both interesting and sad to see.
Old confession stalls?
Strange slogan to find here; nice skeleton on the back wall.
Nice peeling paint in the attached school.
Part 4 of my photos from a Detroit Urban Exploration tour I took. This location was an old church and attached school. Some interesting objects and topical graffiti here, including an old piano.
Obligatory shaft of light, but it’s obligatory for a reason!
Looking into another room.
Great design by this artist, perfect for this space.
Lots of junk in the first room.
Left here once the artist was done.
A nice line of new trees coming up through the floor.
Very cool design.
Definitely had that feeling in places on this tour.
Part 3 of my photos from a Detroit Urban Exploration tour I took. This location was a maintenance building for Detroit Water & Waste trucks. It’s now unused, and has been taken over by graffiti artists, skateboarders, and the homeless. Some amazing artwork here too.
Shadows out a window with graffiti below.
Probably an executive’s office.
Possibly elevator maintenance?
Artists have made great use of some large flat walls.
The front building of the complex, joined to the back with a walkway.
Could’ve used one.
Another one was completely flooded from a burst pipe.
More excellent work.
Whatever room this was a wall for is gone.
Great old-school testing board.
Old logos combined with colorful graffiti art.
Part 2 of my photos from a Detroit Urban Exploration tour I took. This location was a much larger set of buildings that was most recently used by Chrysler as a research and testing office. Some great graffiti art and cool old logos are included.
Ground floor hallway.
Auditorium and stage.
An abandoned basketball in the gym.
Old Converse in a cubby.
Upstairs hallway and office.
Marble and pink walls.
School entrance path.
