Walking to Indianapolis.

Walking to Indianapolis.
If I had to be here I was glad it was a quiet Sunday. The experience was bad enough without having a bunch of cars speeding past at close range!

Award-winning cityscape.

Award-winning cityscape.
This view of Indianapolis has been elected "Best View of Indianapolis" on two occasions: in 2013 by readers of the local NUVO alternative newsweekly, and in 2015 by the Indiana chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Indiana). Congrats!

INDIANAPOLIS RIVERINE SCENERY of RAGING WHITEWATER of WEIR of WHITE RIVER with SKY STICKS.

INDIANAPOLIS RIVERINE SCENERY of RAGING WHITEWATER of WEIR of WHITE RIVER with SKY STICKS.
But a look around the Worldwide Web reveals that Indiana people don't bother with referring to this little obstacle as a weir. They say dam: Hoover Dam is a dam, TVA dams are dams, this small thing is a dam, everything is a dam in their Indiana heads.

White River riverfront seating in Indianapolis.

White River riverfront seating in Indianapolis.
This would be a good place for seated group photos of large groups of teenaged friends. One time I rented a couple of vans and brought a bunch of my extended family here and sat them down so they could talk and reminisce for an afternoon. But I forgot to…

For this one I was standing in a parking lot in Muncie back in December of '11, laughing at a tree.

I remember the experience clearly and I still think of it occasionally, even without the aid of a photograph to prompt the memory.

An AT&T building!

An AT&T building!
It was an architectural expression of hostility to the idea of being able to see a building's contents — in the heart of downtown Muncie, Indiana!

Also there was a creative Logs idea for a dumpster fence.

The bldg was supposedly built in 1948 and renova…

Count up the three of them. It was snapshot of urban life in Muncie.

Betterment of landscape of suburban Fort Wayne.

Betterment of landscape of suburban Fort Wayne.
I can think of some other places in the U.S. midwest that might be improved by an introduction of a few Small Touches' worth of colored plastics in naturalistic forms.

A hospital pond! A "medical & business park" pond.

A hospital pond! A "medical & business park" pond.
When speaking of this it is important not to mislead people by referring to it as merely a "park pond," which might call to mind a warmly welcoming public place where happy recreation occurs. It's a "medical & business park pond." There are different kind…

Prying up rounded curbs and storing them for later reuse.

Prying up rounded curbs and storing them for later reuse.
I'm getting hungry for a gray plate of frenchfries, served on a bed of sand and gravel with a sprig of parsley.

We might not even need to repaint the curbs after we reinstall them!

Pump canopy sandpile.

One thing that attracted me to this sandpile was: the shadows cast across it by 4 powerlines, as it waits here to get dug into.

The foreground Pink Wood mounted on 2 poles is a signal to somebody about something.

I like to go to downtown Fort Wayne and move around!, to observe the effects that changes in my position will have on the arrangements of buildings I can see.

Downtown Terre Haute city sidewalk plants.

Downtown Terre Haute city sidewalk plants.
When I'm someplace and I get bored I like to start looking around for weird street bushes, I can usually find something to laugh at.

Good idea for an Internet Webpoll on a Terre Haute local news website:

"Prairie buttons" landscaping idea for landscaping the sidewalk.

"Prairie buttons" landscaping idea for landscaping the sidewalk.
Make "prairie buttons" of restored prairie. Grow islands of habitat from whichever of the native plantbreeds.

Re that little driveway:
The elevation of the sidewalk curbs above the level of the street is so slight, most drivers wouldn't actually have t…
