  • Meeting a local Artist: Tommy James

    https://www.facebook.com/tommyjameskollection Today I had an item I posted on Facebook Marketplace, and the buyer asked if I could deliver it to him. Since the address was here in Bloomington, and I am a friendly guy, I said Sure! When I arrived, I was greeted by someone who looked like they fell out of time from […]

  • The beautiful West Baden Inn

    The West Baden Springs Hotel, formerly known as the West Baden Inn, is part of the French Lick Resort and is a national historic landmark hotel in West Baden Springs, Orange County, Indiana. It is known for the 200-foot (61 m) dome covering its atrium. Prior to the completion of the Coliseum in Charlotte, North […]

  • Happy Friday!

    Hey I sure hope everybody’s having a good day, and that continue through the weekend. I take some pictures of the sunrise this morning because it seemed like it was going to be a pretty spectacular one. What I like about these pictures is the inevitable sunrise with the gas station in the foreground with […]

  • Short trip today.

    Here’s a small preview of what I’ve been working on today. It was a short visit and by no means complete. But once it’s finished I think you will be impressed with this Indiana landmark

  • Bike riding at night through the streets of Bloomington.

    Last night I decided to participate in an evening bike ride. Everyone met at Bloomington City Hall and right away I can see that this is going to be a great time. People of all types are there. Older people, like me, younger people, college students. Even a very large parrot named Charlie, who was […]

  • Capturing symmetry

    Today at lunch I was right next to a cornfield and I remembered seeing some video footage from somewhere and my thought was, I wonder if the drone can give that same odd feeling of flying just offset of the rows. I find it hypnotic but you can be the judge yourself

  • I’ve always wondered what a silo looks like inside

    My boss is clearing his land to build a new home. He deconstructed a 150 year old barn, saving most of the wood. The only thing left was the silo, and I was challenged to fly down into it. So of course, I did it!https://youtu.be/JGTXMFNswv4

  • Quick stop at the New River Gorge Bridge

    This intimidating bridge was once the highest bridge in the United States. You can still fit the Statue of Liberty underneath it

  • The Wabash Cannonball bridge.

    This was the most rickety, scary, and insane bridge i have ever crossed. But it is historic and rumor has it soon to be demolished. This bridge is a most unusual historic bridge, both because this large, multi-span structure is composed of spans from three different dates and also because of its conversion for vehicular […]
