TGIF: Wounded

Summer in Indiana - hot and humid.  Walking early in the day helps but by the end of the journey it becomes a bit unpleasant.

Today's wander was cut short as Liah has somehow injured a leg.  Limping noticeably, we stopped short of usual turning location and slowly returned to the car. 

Going up stairs it's one step at a time with rest between each level.  Hopefully rest and sleep will correct the problem.

Continuing with this weeks photographs, will close with a neat and tidy appearing bed & breakfast building.

Monday Morning Coffee: North Vernon

The city of North Vernon is in Jennings County with a 2014 population of 6,636. This an increase of about 2% from the 6,515 of 2000.

Running thru the center of downtown is the East/West cross country US Route 50.  Fifteen years ago, passed thru North Vernon while traveling across the United States on Route 50.

At that time deemed the place was too big to stop and spend time photographing.  Vowed to return later and this past Sunday, did.

Now you know you are in Indiana, when in the downtown you come across this.

Although the city has grown in the last few years, in 2015 the percentage of residents living in poverty was 24.4.  Once again, reminded that these are still hard times in the Midwest.

On the edge of town, near the railroad tracks, is the Wayside 
Inn and Christian Fellowship.

More results from the North Vernon walkabout come in the coming days.

TGIF: Pride Strength Freedom

Quiet week filled with walking, reading and improving personal photography skill set.

Added a 7.5 mm wide angle lens to the tool kit.  Spent a good bit of time taking and processing the resulting photographs produced by this lens.  

As the field of view is almost 180 degrees, distortion is bound to happen.  This can be a creative opportunity as well as disruptive. Takes a spot of careful subject selection and composition.  So far nothing of importance, rather just becoming accustomed to the possibilities.  

With good weekend weather promised, plan to incorporate it in the Sunday walkabout.

In keeping with the world wide political noise, will close with:        

   Markle, Indiana.
