Detroit (March, 2004)

I shot this from the bus window as we were leaving the city via the "Tunnel to Canada". This was during the first year I was at McMaster, and was the first time I had seen anything of the U.S. other than its airports. I shot this with my Minolta XD-11; the image here is a scan of a small print.

In spite of the short bus ride through the city, I think in this image I captured something of the stereotype of Detroit that most people have ready in their minds when the place is mentioned. But I'd also seen, already, that there was much more to Detroit than its reputation as a desolated urban wasteland implies. Still hoping to go back for another visit at some point.
