M-14 Exit 4 Bridge, Central Campus
I have a long history with this highway overpass, strangely enough. I discovered these train tracks snaking between the many parks up the Huron River when first exploring Ann Arbor at the start of last year. Later during the winter time, I searched for a secluded spot to practice plein air oil painting and set up below the rumbling of cars of all places. I would not recommend painting in the winter without proper protective gear nor the sun to warm you up (even if I got a painting from the experience).
I was happy to return to this place and capture it again when I could finally use green on my canvas. The area has always struck me as a wonderful mixture of a desaturated human footprint, and the luscious abundance brought upon by nature.
