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.”

I made this photograph over four years ago, in February of 2006, while driving back to Fort Wayne after visiting a friend in Louisville. This house sits on a hill overlooking Interstate 65 in southern Indiana.

I was driving down Spy Run Avenue in Fort Wayne a few days ago when I had to stop at the traffic light at the corner of Spy Run and Fourth Street. I glanced over toward the old building that houses Cardinal Tattoo when my eye caught this little kid-size 20 inch BMX bike leaned against the front of the tattoo shop.

Here is a black & white photograph of the landscape scene that I posted a few days ago. These four trees stood along Yohne Road in southwest Allen County, Indiana until they were bulldozed last year to make way for an expansion of the National Serv-All landfill.

Amy is one of my oldest friends. She’s working as a photographer at Disney World this fall, so I photgraphed her the day before she left Fort Wayne last weekend.

This is one of the most perfectly formed trees that I have ever seen. It is in a field along Lima Road (Indiana State Road 3) a little south of Huntertown, Indiana. It has been a favorite subject for several years.

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.

The Jolly Green Giant used to stand in the front window of Cardinal Tattoo at the corner of Spy Run Avenue and Fourth Street in Fort Wayne. He was moved to the back of the shop in the spring of 2010, so he’s still around. I made this photograph in December of last year.

My cat sitting in the kitchen in the early evening lit by the light from the nearby patio doors. He died at age 16 on July 22, 2010. My son and I miss him a lot.
