Makes me wonder where upper management has their heads.

This is just about the most magnificent fog shot I have seen ever! Fantastic piece here, and so rather symbolic as well....in the fog, coming out? Going in? Who knows....amaybe the T party types can help (yah right) Awesome, Ralph!

A beautiful shot. I always liked this building(s), and normally I don't go for much that isn't heritage stock. I was last in Windsor and Detroit in September of 2008, and was struck anew by the riches of fine architecture in the Motor City.

Also, thanks for your comments of late. I have been so busy, I don't always find the time to post.

This has a definite surreal mood. Downtown is constantly changing with the weather and light. Great shot.

Is that the same building that Michael Moore tried to get into to see Roger Smith in the film Roger & Me?

This PoV totally shocks me. Of the many photos I have seen of General Motors, it was always from the other "side." I never knew there was this "disconnect" with a circular building and what looks like a separate building that wraps around it. I always thought this was one building. Thanks for sharing this unseen view.
