Chandler Day 285: Welcome to Danville

DSC05740Today Brandy and KC’s movie,¬† The Chronicles of a Dead Man,¬†was playing in the Indy Film Fest in Danville, which is Hannah’s hometown. So we got to show Brandy around Danville and get some pretty fun shots at the Twin Bridges. I also got to see Nick, Mary, Mom, Abbie and Hannah’s family too. It was a really fun day overall with family, good short films and some good shots.

Chandler Day 269: Danville’s Dead

DSC05290This evening Hannah and I went to shoot a graveyard right in the heart of Danville. There are some very old graves there (I found one from around the 1770’s). Almost all of the graves are from people that have been dead for a very long time and have most likely been completely forgotten about. But as Hannah said, our photos remember and honor them in some way.

Chandler Day 185: Happy Birthday of America!

20140705-151914-55154194.jpgI spent the 4th with Hannah and her family and friends. It was a good day with good people, good fireworks and good drinks. We celebrated it the way it should be. With friends and family. So Happy Birthday America and thank you to everyone that helped make this country.

Chandler Day 182: What to do, What to do?

DSC03928Today was a boring day. I drove all over the place and visited a lot of places and blew through a lot of gas, but for some reason it bored me. Usually I like wandering, but not today. I was alone and didn’t want to be. I was bored and tired and the heat was annoying. So I spent the afternoon sitting on the tracks watching trains colored with graffiti go by.

Chandler Day 170: Straight to the Capitol

DSC03741We went driving in the country day today. It was hot and we had the a/c as high as it would go. I took my time driving down the roads and as I drove over this tiny one-lane bridge I glanced over and saw this. I crossed the bridge and parked the car. I had to get a shot. I like how dirty the tracks looked. They almost look abandoned, but these tracks are used a lot. They head straight to Danville, Avon and Indy.  Perfectly straight, a direct alley to Indy.

Chandler Day 157: Twin Bridge

DSC03626This bridge here is the second of the Twin Bridges in Avon and Danville. I already shot the first bridge and put it in an earlier post. Both of these bridges are supposedly haunted and have interchangeable stories. One is of a man buried alive in the concrete, the other is of a woman who dropped her baby in the creek below. Both are a little creepy looking and both are very photogenic. Tonight I was able to shoot the Avon bridge and explore the park that it’s in. It made for a fun evening and I hope to shoot more of the bridge another time.

Chandler Day 153: I Don’t Know How She Does It

DSC03582As soon as work was over, I got in my car and drove to Danville. It was a shitty day at work and I knew she was the only one that would make me feel better. I was stressed and tired and I had to see her. And she made me feel better. She made me cheered me up and made me happy. She’s always able to do that. Even when I was at my worst, she could still cheer me up. She makes me unbelievably happy and she makes me want to do my best to make her feel the same.

Chandler Day 148: State Road 39

DSC03587A quick shot out of the window of my speeding car, as it flew down S.R. 39. I’ve driven this road a million times. Always headed towards Danville. It can be a long drive from wherever I’m staying and it can be boring, but it’s always worth it when I reach the destination and the person that’s waiting for me at the end. Tonight Hannah drove though, and I got to be a passenger for once. So I got to shoot and scenes that I had seen a million times became interesting. Like this fence line that is along the county line between Boone and Hendricks.

Chandler Day 103: The Screaming Bridge

DSC02447I was finally able to shoot this bridge today. It’s called the Screaming Bridge. It’s a supposedly haunted railroad bridge in Danville. I remember seeing it for the first time. It was the first time I had been to Danville and Hannah was giving me the grand tour in her 89 Dodge Dynasty at about midnight. She decided to include this bridge in the tour. It was pretty dark and the bridge definitely looked very creepy that night. And ever since I saw it that night I’ve wanted to shoot it. Today Hannah drove me to it again and I got to shoot it. I love this bridge. I love the architecture, the decay, and the possibility of it being haunted.

Chandler Day 88: A Good Night

DSC02312Tonight was good. After a long rough week, I got to spend time with Hannah and her family. We all had dinner and then Hannah and I went driving. We drove around Avon, Plainfield, Danville and went out to Gravity Hill. It was nice to just be driving around, listening to music and talking again. No stress, no big decisions, no arguing, no bad feelings. It was nice. This was taken out in Plainfield,IN
