Being Tourist

I decided I would mix things up a bit this year and go on vacation. For real. I spent three nights in hotels, took as many days off work, and visited destinations in two states. My first stop was the city of Columbus, Indiana. Columbus is important for having notable architecture despite the fact that it is not a huge city. Stop number one on my sight-seeing itinerary was the park, where I only intended to park. My father, who was traveling with me, spotted a large observation tower and wanted to climb it. We kept finding things we wanted to get a closer look at, so we spent a lot more time in the park than planned. There was a metal tunnel with vines growing over it and benches inside, trees, bridges, flowers, and more.

Most of my photographs from around town are more tourist shots, but here are some details from a couple of the buildings.

Lock and Key

Why do we have locks and keys?

To keep things safe and secure. But not just that. To hide our secrets.

For all of us, there are private things – secrets hidden in our hearts, sometimes manifest in objects, written down or not. Some great, some small, most trivial in the large world. Important to us.
