One Nine Five

Some subjects draw me in every time I pass by with a camera. This scene on Main Street in Zionsville has become one of those subjects. I am sure I have at least one more photo from here, but I can’t find it now. Enjoy these five.

  1. Jim, I have the same experience and I’ll bet all of us have our “attractors.” Most are a rich source of interesting images; for me that involves not only the visual but also considering the history of the place. Why is it though, that it can be so difficult to “find pictures” in some places that are incredibly interesting to look at and visit, even with an abundance of the usual elements of color, contrast, and form?


  2. I can see why you find the spot appealing.

    And how timely – the numbers mark my current weight after dropping a few pounds. Hopefully you will publish a shot of one with a lower address number in another couple of weeks. 😀


  3. I definitely have places like this too. Do you find you take the exact same composition more often than not, or do you consciously vary it (which seems to be the case from this example you’ve shared)?


    • I find that it differs from subject to subject. Three ash trees behind my old house, I almost always shot the same way.

      The office building I worked in from 2009-2015, I varied:

      • Interesting to see how some are so similar, near identical in fact. Lovely to see those trees going through the different seasons. Reminds me of a famous photographer (though I forget which) who is his latter days made hundreds of images of the tree in his back ground and photographed little else.
