Tall grass growing on the edge of a cornfield on Anderson Road, a couple miles east of Churubusco, in rural Whitley County, Indiana. This is about 20 feet down the road from the “Freedom or Socialism” sign that I also photographed.
Sofi Mart is a tiny convenience store with a walk-up window and a drive-thru, located on the south side of Mishawaka Avenue, between Lawrence Street and Elm Street, in Mishawaka, Indiana. Like many convenience stores in the United States, Sofi Mart is owned by an immigrant from India.
I thought the building looked interesting at night. Even in daytime, it is unique. Customers have to walk up to the window to make purchases, or drive up to the drive-thru window on the side of the store. You cannot go in to shop.
The “Spamerican Tour” trailer was giving out free food made with SPAM, the canned pork mystery-meat product, at the 2016 Three Rivers Festival. They even had “Sir Can-A-Lot” the SPAM Knight to attract visitors to the free SPAM. I have another photograph of Sir Can-A-Lot that I posted a few months ago.
The Three Rivers Festival takes place for 10 days in July at Headwaters Park in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.
This A-Frame style house is on Lake Everett Drive, near Lake Everett in rural northwest Allen County, Indiana. Lake Everett is the only natural lake in the county.
The dog, a Siberian Husky, was sleeping under a nearby tree when I walked up to the house. When he noticed me, he walked over and asked to be be petted. After I gave him some love, he posed for a picture!
This house’s design is unusual. A-Frame houses are uncommon here, and the few I have seen had their entrances on one of the ends of the house, rather than on the side like this one.
This former church building is now home to Vogue Beauty College, a school that trains hairstylists and makeup artists. It is located on the corner of Lincolnway and Spring Street in Mishawaka, Indiana.
In our culture, which is obsessed with appearance and worships beauty, it is fitting that a “beauty college” should be located in a former house of worship!
On the evening of October 7, 2016, I was driving on State Road 19, between Wakarusa and Elkhart, in rural Elkhart County, Indiana. Just south of US-20, I noticed that the clouds in the sky were forming interesting abstract patterns and shapes, and they were moving and changing rapidly. I made seventeen photographs of the clouds, looking west from State Road 19, in just nine minutes.
Continuing on, I got on US-20 and headed west toward Mishawaka. A few minutes after crossing into Saint Joseph County, I stopped again to photograph the clouds. By then, the last light of the day was fading quickly. I made three photographs of the clouds looking south and west from US-20, a couple miles east of Mishawaka.
Yesterday afternoon, when I saw this trailer piled with furniture, with a double-seat motel chair or tulip chair porch glider swing on top, I assumed it was an old one being thrown away. That would have been a shame, as the old ones are quite rare.
Fortunately, this is a modern reproduction, and it was just being moved to a new house. The owners told me that they bought it at Walmart!
This was on Clinton Street, across the street from the used car lot that only sells white vans, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was raining lightly when I stopped to photograph the glider.
