25 years old and gone.

I was in downtown Indianapolis a week or so ago and happened to drive by the remains of the Hoosier dome. I thought it would make an interesting picture but I didn’t have a camera with me so the next day,my son Jason  volunteered to take some pictures.

I’m going to count these towards my project 365 even though I don’t know if the rules allow it. In any case, I gave myself a dispensation since I recently had open heart surgery.
the smokestacks are the IPL steam generating plant.

Damned if I'd be under all that concrete

I hope we don’t see the same thing with Lucas Oil twenty five years down the road. Well, I probably won’t anyway.
