Belle Isle Zoo (via Jen Pro-V)

Jen and I went to Detroit to shoot a few pieces for a film she’s working on. We had the best Mexican food since Texas, ate at a Thai restaurant with boarded up windows, watched the sunset behind the city, waited out a storm in the old zoo, saw an armored truck that had been converted into an ice cream truck, saw streets with a house or two, burned out houses, collapsed houses, empty lots, amazing architecture, kids having fun, a guy standing on top of a busted water main, tons of great hand-painted signage, friendly folks, Tigers tailgaters that looked like white refugee camps, donks on parade, and dark buildings.
