Made the pilgrimage to Detroit last year for some urban exploring. The locals either love or hate the fact that tourists come just to capture the decay. My hometown of Gary, IN is similar, so I understand the sentiment; however, it doesn't change my intrigue. With cities so ravaged by economic depression, you almost have to embrace the struggle or sink deeper. No use suffering in silence. Document what once was and pay homage. Photos are about capturing time, right?
It's been called the killer compact. Shooting this with color film has been a joy. It's super sharp end to end and extremely pocketable. The built-in flash works when you need it to and best of all, its got Zeiss optics. These were shot with Fujifilm Superia 400.
Film, Buena Vista Cafe.
