The Guardian Building: a Detroit marvel

It was 15 degrees outside so I ducked into the Guardian Building earlier today to warm up. Good move. In addition to being heated, the Guardian is just an awesome building. I'm not going to try and describe the incredible architecture. I'll let this picture (and others that I'll post in the days and weeks ahead) speak for itself. This shot, incidentally, is of the building's second-floor "Retail Promenade", home to a few little shops and stores including Pure Detroit. (The Guardian, by the way, is also the new home of the Wayne County offices, which you've probably read about in the news lately.)
