Archie Arnold has Expired!

A pair of expired parking meters adorn Archie Arnold’s tombstone at the Scipio Cemetery in rural Allen County’s Scipio Township.

Mr Arnold, who was born in 1920, and died in 1982, certainly had a sense of humor! The back of the tombstone, shown in my photograph, has a quote engraved upon it: “Fear the Lord and tell the people what you want.”

The Trees on Yohne Road

I have photographed this group of four trees on Yohne Road in southwest Allen County many times over the years. They were located in the middle of a field that is now owned by the National Serv-All Landfill. In September of last year, they were bulldozed to make way for an expansion of the landfill. This photograph was made in February or 2005. It is one of hundreds of older images that I am working on adding to my online portfolio.
