These barns are on the west side of Schwartz Road, south of Witmer Road, in northeast Allen County, Indiana. The blue boxes on the ground in front of the white one are drawers from a desk that the owners are repainting.
This old brick farmhouse is on the north side of US-24, next to I-469, on the eastern edge of the small town of New Haven, Indiana. The building with the American flag on it is the garage. There was a large barn and a chicken coop behind the house, too.
This unusual flagpole stands on the corner of Oak Street and Lincoln Highway in the small town of New Haven, Indiana. The flags on top look new, while the ones on the ends of the crossarm are faded and town. The pole itself is not very tall, maybe seven or eight feet. I have another photograph of this place.
I found this Chevrolet pickup truck in the parking lot of a grocery store in the small town of Churubusco, Indiana. I’ve seen a lot of pickups in 2015 that have full size American flags flying from the back of them.
This train was sitting on the railroad tracks that run parallel to Dawkins Road, just west of Sampson Road, in Allen County, Indiana. Most of the trains that pass through our area are pulled by Norfolk Southern locomotives.
There had been rain off and on all day, but it stopped briefly in the evening. I took advantage of the lull in the rain to do some photographs in the rural areas east of New Haven, Indiana.
This is the enormous 80 foot wide American flag that flies over Glenbrook Dodge, a car dealer on Coliseum Boulevard on the north side of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Seen from east, it was lit from behind by the afternoon sun. I photographed it from the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant next door.
This is the Aunt Millie’s Bread outlet store on Hillegas Road in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The sign on top of the store is a small replica of the famous Sunbeam Bread sign on the company’s factory in downtown Fort Wayne.
Summer festivals in Indiana are known for their food. The vendors often travel far with their food trailer to set up shop at festivals all over the midwest, so it is rare for one to be a locally-owned business.
This one at the 2015 Three Rivers Festival in Fort Wayne sells sandwiches made of sirloin steak and Italian sausage.
The Three Rivers Festival takes place every summer in July at Headwaters Park in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. I go every year and photograph people at the festival.
