Indianapolis, Indiana

I had the good fortune of landing a job last year that had me exploring my own city of Indianapolis. The project was one that required me to photograph lots of different landmarks downtown. What was most fun was the fact that I got to really explore my city more than I normally do. There's a common reality among lots of people who take for granted what they have in their own city or town; they don't explore or visit the things that exist in their own backyard. I scoured downtown like a curious visitor from out of town and actually discovered things about downtown that I didn't know. This photo was a part of that project. I ultimately ended up printing very large B&W prints for display as wall art. Thanks to my Canon EOS 1DS Mark II and my Epson Stylus Pro 9800 printer we produced beautiful prints that will last as artwork for a long time to come.

  1. John, I love this shot! At first glance, I thought it was the roof of Fountain Square - exactly opposite from where you really were.

    Keep up the great work!
