Normally when I go downtown, I don’t expect to find something new. I’ve been around that area quite a lot and I’ve shot a ton. But tonight I found this. A very nice portrait of Mr. Kurt Vonnegut. For those of you who do not know who he is, he was an author from Indianapolis. He wrote Slaughterhouse 5, Cat’s Cradle, Sirens of Titan and much more. I love his works and find him fascinating. And tonight I found this very large portrait and was able to shoot it. I really don’t know how I missed this.
At the 100 Acres there is this weird rock wall, tunnel, garden thing that is very hard to describe but is also very interesting. It starts out with a walkway that gradually slopes down towards a tunnel and there are loose rock walls that grow on either side. Then there is an unlit tunnel that you have to walk through. For some reason it reminds me of a tunnel into a tomb. I don’t know if that is what the artist intended or not. But on the other side of this tunnel there is light and a nice staircase that leads up to a nice square garden with pleasant green grass and a wall around it. Anyway this passageway seems like the tunnel between life, death and whatever the hell is on the other side. A passageway into another world, another life. There is something mythical and primal and prehistoric about this garden and I love it.
