After several unexpected changes at work, it was time for me to take a few days off to regroup and regain my sanity. The weather was surprisingly beautiful and warm for early April in Indianapolis, so I headed out on an outing with my parents to explore the beauty of the city. After touring the amazing Crown Hill Cemetery, we found ourselves at the park surrounding the Indianapolis Museum of Art. No fear, I came prepared. With the sun shining and the birds singing, it was the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot with Mike.
As luck would have it, the 100 Acres park is a setting in John Green's latest The Fault in Our Stars. With ease, we found the statue mentioned in the book on a lush green hill. Luckily, the area was nearly vacant, so I pulled out my trusty traveling companion, a copy of the book, and set about capturing the moment. We only received a few odd glances and snickers along the way (something I am now quite use to, and truth be told, relish just a bit).
|"Funky Bones", April 2, 2012, Indianapolis, IN|
"We walked down what passes for a hill in Indianapolis to this clearing where kids were climbing all over this huge oversize skeleton sculpture. The bones were each about waist high, and the thighbone was longer than me. It looked like a child's drawing of a skeleton rising up out of the ground."
