Yup - I actually thought he was reposting someone else's work, but he just shot the same place at almost the exact same vantage point...

If you look closely at the photo you will see the same EXACT shadows in the front of the building. Sorry to say but the photo was "photoshopped"

Don't feel bad, I thought it was real myself until someone else pointed it out to everyone.

Unfortunately, that is a good representation
of the current status of Detroit. We also have 50-plus year-old abandonments
such as the former Packard automobile assembly plant.

Even so, there is a workshop or two within her walls, as machine-shop
sounds can clearly be heard behind bricked-up passages. I don't know
if such endeavors are legitimate, and don't understand how electric
power is delivered to such a derelict building, but there's something
significant going on within the very center of the complex.

Interesting. Keep us posted if you find any more about this. :confused:

The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Except that if you look closely you will see that there is less grass/weeds in the "daytime" picture than in the "nighttime" picture. The foliage on the trees is different too. Same location, same time of day, nearly identical positioning, but taken at different times of year.

Went a bit overboard this week and nervously bought the 17mm TS-E. Today I got to put it through it's paces on an explore. This lens is phenomenal. I'll be paying for it for years, but I can't say I regret it.

Old mining town I found in Rosamond, CA, couldn't get any closer as the caretaker wouldn't lets us inside the fenced area. These are the frist shots with the new 7D, it's a bit different than the 40D I'm use too.

There is a place in town I'd love to photograph. Only reason is it is in town, next to a busy road, and it's all blocked up or fenced off. I think I see a way in, but it's a matter of getting in during daylight hours without being seen with equipment!

Thanks Bruce, but I seriously doubt there's anything to learn.

It was indeed somewhat offputting,
but there was no way found to see what the operation was.

We found the sounds on my first visit, and we kept wondering about it.
It seemed so out of character for such a huge structure without power
and decaying for over 50 years. There have been attempts such as a paintball
setup with mazes and obstacles, the remains of which can be found,
to failed paid storage enterprises, evidenced by the numerous boats, trucks
and other crap to be found, to all sorts of garbage dumping and other
presumably illegal activities.
When we first observed the machine sounds, we began looking for the source.
The closest we came was to a rooftop access, which afforded us much better
hearing of the machining going on below, but none of us were willing to scale
the rusty corrugated tin roofing to take a peek into the operations, as the
tin roofing could have easily collapsed under the weight of any one of us.

On my first visit there, we were greeted by a rather seedy-looking man,
who was more concerned with us setting fires than taking pictures.
He claimed to be running a business close to our entry point.
After displaying our photographic gear and offering a brief explanation,
the seedy man reluctantly allowed us to proceed through an entrance
left wide open. Fortunately, we were not ambushed as we wandered
around the incredible vastness of the former Packard plant.

You might be able to access the northernmost section of the plant,
if you are skilled in both rappelling and avoiding motion detectors
and cameras, as that section is most obviously monitored and
fully maintained. It has a fully modern rooftop, while cameras
and motion detectors are clearly seen from above.
Other than the far-Northern section and the middle area, the Packard
plant is literally wide-open for exploration. Understand that it's in the
middle of Detroit's decay, it's wide-open to drug dealers and gang-bangers,
and it's been vacant for more than 50 years.

Just stay away from whatever shop exists within the middle section,
as I'm certain that it's not an above-board operation.
The guys running it might rather shoot to kill before allowing anyone inside,
and they've made sure to keep everyone out by bricking any possible entryways.
