Out of the Jurisdiction: DTW

Detroit's airport is a gateway between Hartford and the Midwest or West.  I passed through DTW twice this week.  The tunnel between terminals has cool music and constantly changing colored lights from the walls bouncing off all surfaces.


Please visit Weekend Reflections to see more pictures with reflections.

Hee! I was just about to ask if this was the "disco tunnel". I've passed through this place many times, but never managed to get a good shot. Thanks for succeeding where I have not! But did you get the playful fountain?

I've never seen that before and I fly through DTW quite a bit. It has a nightclub feel to it. What airline were you flying? If you find your way to RSW, meander over to Centennial Park.

Leif Hagen said...

Very, very cool, Jack! Ahhhh!
I like the blue one best!

EG Wow said...

It makes me wonder who you were flying with as I think of Cleveland or Houston as being the gateway to the West. (Continental Airways, now United)

No matter, the reflections are GREAT!

i have a memory of the Detroit airport. I was supposed to fly to Milwaukee, but he flight got cancelled. I managed to find a flight from Phoenix to Vegas, then a red eye to Detroit, then fly back to Milwaukee to make my morning meetings. I bought a razor, tooth brush and shirt in the Detroit Airport so I at least would be presentable. I changed in the airplane lavatory. I arrived at my Milwaukee meeting just a few minutes late and announced that I was wearing the latest fashions from the Detroit Airport.

Great colors and it really must help breakup all the walking you have to due at e airport.

Malyss said...

Oh, I like that when they make the places change colors! That's unreal and beauyful!It puts magyc in everyday places!

Pet said...

Sci-Fi nearly!

Luis Gomez said...

Excellent!

Karen said...

Excellent reflections! I'm already disorientated when I get off a plane, I think all the changing lights would intensify that, but it's pretty.

Dianne said...

wow!
they can have a rave in between flights :)

Sylvia K said...

On se demande ce que l'on a ingurgité ! Psychédélique !

PerthDailyPhoto said...

What a brilliant idea, I can just imagine you groovin' your way along here Jack!! Terrific shots.

Lesley said...

Wow! This is way more entertaining than walking past large oversized adverts you are not interested in reading about.

cieldequimper said...

Walking through a giant kaleidoscope! Brilliant!

RedPat said...

Can't help but feel how great i would have found that during the 60s! Quite the trip.

VP said...

I'd like to see this!

Talk about fantastic ambient lighting.

Speaking of fantastic, excellent captures. Very moody.

Dianne said...

Amazing Jack! it makes for an interesting trip = I'll take the green tunnel.

Kathryn Dyche Dechairo said...

Neat, love the red one.

JM said...

This is so cool! The top shot has an aquarium atmosphere. Love it.

James said...

That is so cool! I would probably get harassed by security for taking too many photos. :)

Lowell said...

You're getting really artsy-fartsy, too. I like!

I don't much like the Detroit airport, though. Spent too much time there when I was flying years ago...and I'd sometimes end up there in mid-winter, trying to figure out how to get home!

valerie said...

Great postings Jack. What an imaginative way of entertaining passengers en route. Happy weekend!

Farmchick said...

Pretty cool. One airport I haven't been to yet....

Kate said...

Human ingenuity has no boundaries. This is a colorful idea to keep passengers amused or one's mind off the indignities associated with modern air travel.

sheila lynch said...

the lighting is really nice, I hope the music was great to match, very nice shots

Sharon said...

This reminds me a lot of the tunnel running between terminals in Chicago.

Randy said...

Now that would be fun! Nice shots!

ladyfi said...

That's very cool. Great shots!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Whoa. Just like the light shows at the Fillmore. Well, kind of. Definitely entertaining.

Irina said...

Looks like the lights designer is a big pro. So beautiful.

Virginia said...

Oh I'd have missed my plane trying to photograph each one. Great post.

This is SO COOL. It could make me very uncomfortable, though, inducing thoughts like, "Open the pod door, Hal."
