Sometimes creatives need to sit back and relax, sometimes we need to expand our horizons... possibly viewing one, to get our creative juices flowing. We are lucky in the Detroit area, we have a beautiful city and gorgeous skyline. There are so many places and so many ways to view the city in all its splendor! Whether you are seeing the the skyline from outside or within the city limits, the street or a rooftop, there are far more spots to take it all in. Here are just a few of the awe and creativity inspiring locations around:
Shot from the North of Downtown Detroit
Not only are the views within the downtown limits gorgeous, but the views from every side are as well. This particular photograph is taken from the north,
Historic churches in the Detroit area
Some of the most beautiful architecture in Detroit are the historic churches - This particular shot is of Christ Church Episcopal, built in 1863. If one can go into one of these gems and NOT feel some creativity flowing through them, they are dead.
The Detroit Riverwalk
One of the best places to relax in Downtown Detroit is the Riverwalk - plenty of places to walk, sit, and hang out. You not only have a serene setting for a downtown area, you have a nice view of the river, Canada, and the skyline from various parts of the walk.
We love sports here in Detroit - Tigers Baseball is a top favorite and the ballpark is awesome! The colors, the skyline and the camaraderie within the park are not to be beat. Just look at it!
James Scott Memorial Fountain
Not only is Belle Isle in its entirety something to write home about with the abundance of nature, but the beautiful fountain and the views around it are to die for. No matter which side you are viewing, there will be a great view - this particular shot shows the skyline of Detroit in the background... sure to inspire some creativity, especially with the newly added seating around the fountain.
Detroit Skyline at Dusk
You just cannot top the sight of the skyline, even on a crappy day, but seeing it on a beautiful night,while the sun is setting is not to be beat. Whether you are viewing it from the street or from a rooftop, do not forget how it looks because it will absolutely be a stepping stone for a future creative project.
Southern view of Detroit
You saw the view of Downtown Detroit from the north, check it out from the south! I think I could personally sit here in this field for hours.
Find yourself a spot with a beautiful view just like this and choose to get down to business. Break out a trusty pad of paper and some pens, pencils, markers, paints, or a good old laptop and start working on something. Sitting on a boring room which you always work in won't inspire anything new - expand those horizons and view a beautiful one!
