34th and Illinois

Some of the revitalization that has been going on through 38th Street has not made it very far south as of yet. Taken only a few blocks from Crown Hill Cemetery; this shot probably violates various accepted principles of photography, but I was just try to squeeze as much wide angle as I could with the lens I was using. One thing someone has to do when photographing in Indianapolis early on is to make peace with the utility poles and overhead wires...

Just out of the picture to the left is a gorgeous old theater building at 34th & Illinois, and a new apartment building under construction at 34th & Meridian. Just to the south (out of the picture a block to the right) is the dead Winona Hospital, which is probably the key to a comeback for the area.
