This sign is on the side of a storefront church called Faith Tabernacle Apostolic Church. It is located on South Anthony Boulevard in Fort Wayne’s inner city.
My son, Mack, will be 14 on Monday. I made this photograph of him a week ago.
While driving down South Anthony Boulevard one afternoon, I noticed this small church just east of Anthony, on Drexel Avenue. As soon as I read the sign tacked across the front doors of Victory Apostolic Church, I burst out laughing!
Another photograph of the shopping carts next to the Big Lots store in New Haven, Indiana.
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.
These snow-covered shopping carts sat beside the Big Lots store on State Road 30 in the small town of New Haven, Indiana. New Haven sits against the city of Fort Wayne’s eastern edge.
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.
This house is at the corner of Anthony Boulevard and Eckart Street on Fort Wayne’s south side. This neighborhood is in one of the most economically disadvantaged areas of the city, and as with other poor and inner-city areas here, there seems to be more patriotism evident than in the ‘better’ parts of town.
I found this creepy old building on east Pontiac Street in Fort Wayne’s inner city. I don’t think that I would buy candy here!
This sign was behind The Church in Jesus Christ at the corner of Winter Street and Oxford Street in Fort Wayne’s inner city. The Tap Tap Outreach Center is located in a small building behind where I stood when I made this photograph.
