Thank you! If I remember correctly, just southwest of Lafayette Coney? Somewhere near the big urban garden.

Kept driving past this on my way south and thinking what a cool shot it would make. Not quite what I had envisioned. Though I just pulled over and stuck the EOS-M3 through the sunroof with the LCD tipped down.

Yes. On the bridge on I-75. The other direction has a nice view of the city skyline.

I was driving back to Cleveland and left at 3am. I think I took that shot at about 4-4:30. Still a fair bit of traffic, but not that bad.

Heck, I've been here more than 26 years. You can say that about many stretches of freeway in this area.

Michigan Central Depot. The billionaire owner has begun minor rehabilitation. A number of local urban photographers have sneaked in to shoot it, but it's much more difficult today.
