Huntington Outtake

   Huntington, Indiana.

A spot of Greek Temple in Indiana.  Wandering about, never know exactly what to expect.

There Was A Time

There was time when buildings were carefully crafted and constructed brick by brick.  A slow process requiring a great deal of handwork.

A closeup view, of the top corner cubicle, showing the elaborate design details. 

   Huntington, Indiana.

This was done in place, rather than built elsewhere and then placed.

Monday Morning Coffee: Unexpected Opportunities

Slowly returning to normality, Liah with a new diet and shorter walks, seems to be herself again.  Among the contributing difficulties were heat and humidity.  We are now walking earlier in the day as it is a bit cooler at that time.

This recent weekend consisted of dark cloudy skies and occasional rainstorms.  Not too great for photography.

A couple of rather surprising results from the latest
Huntington walkabout. 

First off in the middle of the city, a vehicle storage facilely 

   Huntington, Indiana.

A few blocks further on, an urban garden.

   Huntington, Indiana.

Once again, getting out and about with no predetermined path has led to unexpected opportunities for photography.

TGIF: Sleepy, Locked in the Past and Unchanging

If you're not from the Midwest on visiting smaller villages, towns and cities they may appear a bit sleepy, locked in the past and unchanging.  Return at a later time and you will discover that indeed changes occur.

In 2009 begin photographing Huntington, Indiana.  At that time uncovered an example of change.   

   Huntington, Indiana.

A brightly painted Tienda Mexicana.  Would seem to indicate that the population was more diverse than at first imagined.

Returning this year - 2017 - discovered La Morena is gone.

Often what is sleepy, locked in the past and unchanging is the exterior architecture.  Over time what changes is it's interior use.
