It's the details, folks.
Building 50's a massive structure that dominated--and still dominates--the campus of the Traverse City State Hospital. Now known as The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, the asylum's buildings are being renovated to serve other purposes. I find the renovation itself fascinating. We visit once or twice each year, and have watched as the largely-abandoned complex has been (is being) transformed into a very different place. I wouldn't have thought it possible.
The massive building has these little corners that make fine photographs. Here's one.
2014's February trip to Traverse City was cancelled by a blizzard. We rescheduled the vacation to April, and invited my brother and sister to join us. Mostly we visited my family's old haunts at Sleeping Bear, but Joan and I shared some places we'd learned to love in TC. This was one of those.
