Using a friend’s awesome Nikon CoolPix digital camera, I created a set of shots in the downstairs lavatory with a mirrored wall behind and the mirror of the medicine cabinet in front. Taken from a set inspired by the old Pink Floyd cover photo on their album “Ummagumma”, this particular shot is just a head on shot.
Through the Lens
Surely, this old structure has seen better days but if it could talk, it probably has a treasure trove of stories to share. Though it’s fairly obscure from some of the newer, eye-pleasing attractions downtown, this old industrial building is still in use today on the grounds of Dague Builders Supplies, 2 blocks from the YMCA in downtown Muncie.
Beauty and the Blight
Taking a Sunday afternoon stroll in early August, I noticed this pink flowering shrub along a decaying garage.
What an opportune moment to test the camera of my new Android!
Nuances of Industry
The old Ball Corporation Industrial Park houses several glass related operations as well as steel re-bar and plastics. 2 historical markers now sit in the park, one for the Ball Corporation and another for the Hemingray Glass Corporation. Many of the structures remain still in use, but a large portion appear to be unoccupied.
Rainy Day Sunday Blues
A shot I took out the kitchen window one rainy day to try to capture the moment.
Fall in Muncie
Indian Summer: reminds me of playing outdoor football with neighborhood friends as a kid!

The Happy Cones
“Ever et a pine tree? Many parts are edible!”Euell Gibbons
Euell Gibbons was a naturalist in the mid 20th century, well known in his later years for his Grapenuts (“reminds me of wild hickory nuts”) cereal advertisements.
From a set of shots I took in December of 2011, this particular one has nice light.
