Only Lover's Detroit

Adam: "And this is the famous Michigan Theater. They built it
back in the 1920's. A huge sum of money. It's built, ironically, on
the exact same site as Henry Ford made his very first prototype.
They used to be able to seat over 4,000 people in here."
Eve: "It's fantastic. For what? For concerts?"
Adam: "Concerts and as a movie house. Can you imagine?
Mirrors used to reflect the chandeliers. And now, a car park...."
- Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), Only Lovers Left Alive

Aaron and I spontaneously decided to venture around Detroit with my younger sister Carin, because we wanted to see sights from one of our favorite films: Only Lovers Left Alive. Being that the film was only shot four years ago, the city hadn't changed much, and it meant the world to us to see these locations for ourselves before they were lost to time.

It was magical, and we had no idea that Carin had snapped a few pictures on her phone when we were in the Michigan Building car park. We just wanted to be there, to breathe in these places. Words cannot describe it. We also went to see the Fox Theatre, and Adam's old mansion on Alfred Street.

How lovely.

    1. Aren't they! :D Carin did a wonderful job. We didn't even see her take them either, so they were quite candid.
