There are no words for the memories that I am making while visiting the homestate. Detroit will always have a special place in my heart, soul, courage and mentality – you have to be here, to really see it. x

I hosted an art gallery in the Russell Industrial Center for a year; hosting block parties with electronic music, local artists booths & food trucks. I walked thru the warehouse.. completely empty hallways and the artists are gone – it was a different feeling.. like I remember when there was life in these buildings. When it felt you were home when you saw the junk in the hallways.. random things like couches, dressers, random chairs, a motorcycle and just odds- and- ends.

It is becoming a reoccurring pattern that I must see Detroit from all angles of the city… the views from the street looking directly up at the buildings…

The Book Tower Building; my favorite view in the entire city. Known for theΒ gargoyle and bright green roof top that lights up the skyline.

There is a mixture of modern, contempory and historical architecture in downtown Detroit.

Personal favorite spot to take an image of a building – the grid of the building goes in many different directions… shadows, reflection on the mirrors… well done to the architects.

I just love to see all the American Flags that dress up the Renaissance Center. (General Motors)

The Guardian Building — Native American Art & Architecture- this building is a hidden gem with giant steel safes in the basement that held money in the vaults.melissa divietri detroit michiganmelissa divietri detroit michigan

Every business in downtown Detroit has a creative city theme — so much pride in Detroit.. so much mixture of both – locos and hustlers.

The view walking into my office at the Borderick Building… I am in love with riding the People Mover; $0.75 and I would ride twice a day for the longest time. The skyline is ridiculous on the People Mover.
