Most people probably don't know this but it's something I learned in college. If you get on the center railing of the steps to the Central Library in downtown Indianapolis,, and look south you will see that everthing from that center railing to the Chase Tower and everyting in between are perfectly aligned.

I've decided to start a new photo album, for those moments when I see the perfect photograph right in front of me and all I have is my EVO, because I decided to leave my camera at home. This is the "You Just Had To Be There" album.

The 17-foot, 2,000-pound movie prop from the 2007 Transformers movie is made of 300 fiberglass parts cast from 200 custom molds. It took three sculptors and four mold makers to make the fiberglass parts, plus three sculptors to build Bumblee’s frame. In just three months, the talented folks at FXperts, Inc. took an idea and created a superstar.

Bumblebee was specifically requested by the film’s director, Michael Bay, so that a full-size Transformer could be used in filming. Bumblebee was used prominently in all the critical scenes of the movie, and he has become one of the most popular and beloved Transformers.

Parents may remember Bumblebee a little differently from the comic books and cartoons of the 1980s and ‘90s. For the movie, Bay made the decision, in consultation with toymaker Hasbro, to update Bumblebee into a “cool car”—a Chevy Camaro rather than the Volkswagen Beetle that was so popular in the early 1980s.

Now residing in the Welcome Center at The ChIldren’s Museum of Indianapolis, Bumblebee sits atop a rotating platform.

Check out this time lapse video of the assembly of Bumblebee.

When Lucas Oil Stadium was complete the old home of the Colts, the RCA Dome was imploded to make room for an expansion of the Indiana Convention Center. This expansion added extra convention space that will allow Indiana to compete for larger and more prominent conventions in the future.

This is a photo of the new entrance to the convention center which adds to the already magnificent architecture around the city of Indianapolis.

The Pyramids on the northwest side of Indianapolis are an architectural beauty. I've been wanting to shoot them for a while now. Needless to say I was so hype about finally getting my opportunity that I did no planning and I went out to a grassy area on a nice spring evening by a pond and proceeded to serve myself up as dinner for the mosquitoes. It was well worth it though.

The Indianapolis International Airport. One of the most beautiful airports you will ever see.
