Where Am I? Game #208

Congratulations to Jesse Beck, the winner of Game #207. He correctly identified my location as the southwest stairway tower landscape bed of the Gateway Parking Garage at IUPUI. Way to go, Jesse! This is his first win in the Where Am I? Game.

On to Game #208, and the next photo. Can you tell where I was, somewhere along the Indy Cultural Trail? You can identify either the street or a nearby building. Good luck!

Ethan Hochstein, Horticulture Manager

While cycling the Cultural Trail today, I met the very first Horticulture Manager for the Trail, Ethan Hochstein! He is the guy who is in charge of plant selection, making sure the soil is healthy, managing pests and diseases and taking care of street trees and the bioswales. That includes removing the dandelions, as he was doing when I took his photo. Welcome, Ethan!

Field Trip Lunchtime!

This scene at the Indiana State Museum brought back memories of my teaching days and field trips. You would think those days would be a favorite of both teachers and students alike. However, for teachers, some of them were quite stressful, trying to keep the kids still long enough to learn from the exhibits or speakers. When I saw the kids in the photo, I thought to myself, "Now, if I were in charge of this field trip, I would do the same thing, and ask the kids to sit down in groups, while eating their lunches and conversing with low voices.

Where Am I? Game #207

Congratulations to the winner of Game #206! It was Nathan Hagerman, and this was his first win! Thanks for playing, Nathan. He correctly guessed the location as the intersection of Alabama at Ohio Street, looking southwest.

It’s finally time for our first Spring photo in the Where Am I? Game. Can you identify the location of it, somewhere along the Indy Cultural Trail? You can tell us the name of the building, or the street it is on. Good luck, everyone!
