Wall Mural Love – Ikelite Headquarters

Wall Mural Love – Ikelite Headquarters
Speaking of “Taking Time to Photograph…”   Commuting home last fall I noticed a building had magically appeared on the northeast corner of 33rd & Illinois – surely it wasn’t there before, right? Turns out it had been there all along……but it had recently been transformed into a work of art. Last week I was finally able to stop by and snap some photos of these fantastic murals without any cars blocking the view.  It wasn’t until I reached the last few walls that I saw a company name in the window. Welcome to the worldwide headquarters...

Monon Trail Details – Broad Ripple Ave to the White River

Monon Trail Details – Broad Ripple Ave to the White River
I spend quite a bit of time getting around the city at the human pace – which I love because it allows me to soak in the smaller details of our city – both good and bad. I was cruising through Broad Ripple on the Monon recently and in the few blocks between Broad Ripple Ave and the White River I noticed quite a few new additions to that section of the trail that prompted a return trip to snap a few photos.

Places & Spaces of San Diego – Petco Park at the Park

Places & Spaces of San Diego – Petco Park at the Park
Can we find inspiration from a city located in a coastal desert climate?  Well, I think so – but I’m the kind of guy that finds something to like no matter where I travel.  Over my next few posts to the blog, I look forward to sharing a few things I saw in a recent trip to San Diego, CA.  This first post highlights an area that seamlessly combines park space, residential density & a professional sports stadium. This was my first trip to San Diego and I love exploring by bicycle, so I walked from my hotel on Coronado Island and took the ferry across the bay over to downtown where I...
