This is an elevator call panel from Michigan Central Station – arguably the most famous urban ruin in Detroit. Time and taggers have taken their toll on this beautiful building. Here, the setting sun was reflecting onto this surface, hghlighting the amazing colors that you see here. There was very little retouching – these colors are truly this vibrant in real life. What I really appreciated about this scene was the layers present. To the left and right of the panel are the rusted, heavy metal elevator doors now missing their glass and looking straight to the back of the elevator shaft.

Chris Horner is a freelance photographer based in Charlotte, North Carolina USA. Chris started becoming serious about photography about four years ago. His main topic of interest is in capturing urban scenes. Chris started primarily with this theme, and then carried his photography skills into another area that he loves – vehicles and racing. Others began taking notice of his work through what he shared on the web and in person. Soon he was creating fine art prints for people to enjoy in their homes and offices. That in turn got the attention of some local small business owners, who started requesting Chris to create images they could use in their marketing. Chris is looking to grow his commercial business since he has always enjoyed working with other entrepreneurs and helping business owners find success in their endeavors.
