Lighthouse of Glory Church

This storefront church is in an old retail building on State Road 930 in the small town of New Haven, Indiana. New Haven is right up against part of the eastern boundry of the city of Fort Wayne. While I was photographing, a young man stopped by to ask what I was doing. He turned out to be one of the church’s pastors, and a graphic design student at Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne, where I earned my art degre in 1999.

The Lighthouse of Glory Church is right down the street from the Big Lots store where I photographed the snow-covered shopping carts a few minutes before I photographed the church.

Math Graffiti

This abandoned building at the corner of South Coliseum Boulevard and Pontiac Street on the east side of Fort Wayne used to be a place called Bensen’s Bar and Grill. I don’t know what the math graffiti is about!

It is located across the street from the abandoned International Harvester truck factory whose closing in 1982 is believed by many to have been the beginning of Fort Wayne’s slow economic decline.
