Or maybe the guns of Peru; the place is in between those towns and they sell plants and lawn statuary. The decorations include a kind of "statue" not found on many lawns:It's right next to a divided highway......I believe it (or a similar turret) used to sit South of Kokomo, only that owner wasn't as careful of muzzle direction: that installation was aimed right at passing cars! A form of criticism?
Also up that way, what appears to be a very nice little range -- and probably in no way public, given that it is right outside a correctional facility (note fence and one of several buildings at right).Still, it catches my eye every time I drive past. Three-story backstop!
(All pictures in this post shot from a moving car by just holding the camera up and shooting without looking. I manage to get about 75% of what I'm after as long as I plan for the shot well ahead of time. The main trick is to not worry about composition or even capturing the image at all -- hold it up and snap, you get what you get.)
...Suddenly, I want a cast-concrete copy of a Gatling gun or perhaps a little mountain gun for the front yard. Or maybe a copy of one of those little French tanks. We'll grow ivy on it. What?
