Sounds like they're re-airing my interview with Dick Gordon on American Public Media's The Story today. If you're visiting for the first time, welcome. Stories related to the subject matter of that interview can be found here and here. I want to note that I have never called or considered myself an "urban explorer," and I dislike the term almost as much as I groan when people call Detroit "a blank canvas" or refer to someone as an "urban pioneer." I am not Ponce de León. No one here lost three oxen crossing the Missouri River. Detroit, and these buildings, are far from uncharted territory. I am a trespasser with a DSLR and a tendency to pen purple prose about vacant structures.

This is the little tree.

And I should have a new, unrelated post up shortly.
