A Night In Indy

Above, Ed puts the "I" in Indy.

I still can't get a hang of night photography. Granted, I'm only using my little point-and-shoot, I don't use a tripod, and I haven't done any research on how to actually improve my night photography skills. But, that doesn't stop me from taking pictures!

Here's the Indiana Power & Light Company building in downtown Indianapolis. They had several horse and carriages toting people around the city.  This one was shaped like Cinderella's carriage.

The structure below is an art installation that's part of The Public Collection of Indianapolis.

The Public Collection, according to the information kiosk in front of the building is a "public art and literacy project developed to improve literacy, foster a deeper appreciation of the arts, and raise awareness for educational justice in our community.  Through a curated process, Indiana-based artists were commissioned to design unique book share stations or lending libraries that are installed in public spaces around Indianapolis.  The Public Collection stations are free and available to everyone. You can borrow and return books at your leisure. Books are supplied by the Indianapolis Public Library."

Brian McCutcheon is the artist who designed this structure, Monument, 2015, which can be found in Monument Circle.

Each column had this cool little book carousel inside. You open the little door, and spin the inside divided carousel to choose the one you want.
This is the Soldiers and Sailors Monument  which can be found downtown in Monument Circle, where Meridian and Market Streets meet. It took 13 years to build, constructed between 1888 and 1901.
 And then, just a picture of neon in a sandwich shop, offering Free Smells.
