IT'S OFFICIAL: The word is out! For the past 5+ years, I've been working to capture and archive the best photo collections of NW Indiana covering five counties and every single city and town in them. It's been a very long, yet rewarding process and I've only captured the tip of the iceberg. And still, I have thousands upon thousands of photos in queue just waiting to be edited.

Thank you to Jerry Davich for this well written column and for having me on his Casual Friday's radio show on highlighting my work and what it means to businesses in NWI who may also want to highlight the region and it's many assets through photos. Are you a local business? You can order photo prints directly from my website to be hung in your office or at home. I also provide commercial licenses for those who wish to use these NW Indiana photos on their websites, in brochures, catalogs, etc.

To view the complete gallery of NWI towns and cities, visit www.nwistockphotos.com and click on a town album. ‪#‎nwi‬ ‪#‎nwindiana‬
If you've lived in Northwest Indiana long enough, or for too long, it's easy to forget our richness of diversity, natural treasures and iconic festivals.

Story
Introduction
My passion is the creative arts, whether it be through music, fine art, graphic art, photography, or video production. I was born and raised in Northwest Indiana and I am passionate about photography as well as growing other businesses through strategic digital marketing and online reputation management. In a nutshell, creating engaging and attractive web content and utilizing that content in an effective way.

I am interested in photography as a whole, but I am drawn to landscape photography, architecture photography, aerial photography, street photography, and urban exploration photography. I enjoy traveling around the United States visiting both the big cities and the little towns of America. I eat the local fare, listen to the local dialects, and capture the local scenery. Locally, I am on a mission to create a site where people and businesses can order and purchase licenses to use photos of Northwest Indiana for commercial purposes. I also created a website dedicated to photos of Traverse City, Michigan which has recently become a favorite summer small town getaway place for me.

My photos are available for purchase as photo prints and wall art through my website located at www.joeyblsphotography.com in addition to updates and other information.

I CONSISTENTLY HAVE TERRIBLE EXPERIENCES AT THE SCHERERVILLE LOCATION. I live just a couple of blocks away and typically order carry-out. A couple of months back, I ordered a pizza and had one of the worst experiences while ordering; I ordered not long before close and the girl was completely rude. When I picked up the pizza, she continued to be rude and I ended up going home with someone else's order. I called back minutes later, spoke with a manager who said I would be credited a large two-topping pizza to my account. Just over four months later, I decided to order a pizza and use my credit and when I called, they couldn't find a credit in the system and said that even if I had a credit, it would have expired in 90 days. Despite Aurelio's sending me home with the wrong meal (which is an expensive mistake) and consistently receiving terrible service over the phone, my 'credit' was no longer valid. The woman on the phone said all she could do was offer $5.00 off, which is outrageous considering that I am ordering in a reasonable amount of time from my credit and the credit was due to their fault anyways. I told the woman on the phone that I would be sharing my experience with this and past experiences at the Schererville location across all social media and review platforms in which she replied, "Well let me just go talk to the Manager again...". I responded and said that I needed to order food now and I would accept a phone call if a manager was willing to call. AS I EXPECTED, I NEVER RECEIVED A CALL. This business does not practice good business ethics. So Aurelio's, no thanks. I'll admit, I love Aurelio's pizza, but I'll send my business to any other location besides the Schererville one. And despite my experience mentioned above, the overall service here is consistently sub-par when ordering or picking up for carry-out. Avoid this location like the plague.

BEST LOBSTER ROLLS IN MAINE!!! Me and my girlfriend stopped at Cook's Crossing in Searsport, ME as we were driving up US 1 heading from Portland, ME to Bar Harbor, ME. I must say, throughout our east coast road trip, we stopped at a number of places that offered fresh lobster rolls, but Cook's Crossing had THE BEST LOBSTER ROLLS IN MAINE!!! It was a pleasure to make a stop and the owners were wonderful! We spoke with June who took great care of us and was great company during our stop. The restaurant itself is located inside of the original Searsport train station, giving it unique characteristics. If you love lobster rolls, THIS IS A MUST STOP! The ice cream is great too! We are already looking forward to a future trip to Maine and this place will be a "must stop" each time we come through!

AMAZING PIZZA!!!! This place is truly authentic Italian food! The pizza here is absolutely incredible. After talking with the staff, I found that almost all of their ingredients are imported directly from Italy and when you take a bite, that much is obvious. THIS is what pizza was always suppose to taste like! I highly recommend their homemade dessert gelato as well as their homemade cannoli. The atmosphere is very comfortable and is very well decorated! I'm excited to come back and hope that others will find this place as delicious as I did!

Enjoyed my stay at The Signature behind the MGM Grand. The staff is very polite, they open the door for me each time I come and go, and the hotel/residence is very nice. If you are looking for something without a casino attached yet just a stone's throw from the strip, this is your place. It's a bit more quiet and much less rowdy than other places. The Lounge bar is nice and quaint. The room is very clean and I had a Penthouse view of the strip. Enjoyed my stay!
