Images of Indiana

What I do between my daughter’s volleyball games…

These pics are taken at Concord High School, Indiana.

Or the view from the road. This is Gary, Indiana, en route to Chicago:

Bremen, Indiana – on my way to a reading in Ohio.

On the way home from the reading in Ohio. The black figure mowing the lawn is either a nun, an Amish woman, or the Grim Reaper, reaping:

But since I was on Highway 20 in Shipshawana, Indiana – Amish Country – I’m going to have to go with Amish woman. (The shoulders of the roads are full of horse droppings):

    These photos are outstanding and really capture the feeling of northern Indiana. I love how you are able to see something poetic and beautiful in the landscape (literally and metaphorically), and it makes me wish I had been able to do that more when I was in high school there.

    Thanks, Molly! I wish I’d been able to capture *anything* poetic when I was in high school.

    Isn’t there a weird visual symmetry between the upside-down steel cafeteria chairs and the electrical poles in the Gary and Bremen pics?

    Eerie and brilliant all at once! Very cool!

    My family heritage is Amish. But the Amish side of the family doesn’t look anything like that lady. Are you sure she isn’t wearing a Burka?

    Just a suggestion…
