Columbus, Indiana

Photo Venture Camera Club went to Columbus, IN last Saturday to shoot architecture but it was raining.  Are cell phones waterproof?

We had met at The Commons, home of Chaos, a piece designed by Swiss sculptor Jean Tinguel.  I didn’t get any shots of Chaos as a whole, there were too many interesting details.  You can see it at the link to The Commons above.  Given that it was raining, we stayed there for a couple hours which encouraged shooting details.

Including a boot that is part of it.

The water fountains are not part of it.

This hook isn’t either.

Still raining.

It did eventually clear up and we wandered around outside.

Nice interaction of water drops, granite and a leaf.

I wasn’t going to have time to get around to see the buildings designed by the likes of Eero Saarinen, I. M. Pei and others.  With a population of just 39000, Columbus is ranked sixth in terms of architectural interest behind Chicago, New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington.  Not bad, not bad at all.

So I just stayed in the neighborhood.

Shooting through a window can add interest.

Philip Roth wrote ‘Goodbye Columbus’.  Many photographers and other visitors say ‘Hello Columbus’.  Some of us will go back in a few weeks.
