A huge American flag screens one side of the porch on a small white house with several hanging flower pots in Fort Wayne, Indiana. An old man with a big beard sits at the back of the porch and a plastic skull sits an a pedestal on a table in front of the flag.

Bill's House #2

This house is on Huron Street, in the working class West Main Street area of Fort Wayne, Indiana. I stopped to photograph it because of the large American flag that covers the side of the house's front porch.

The owner, an old man with a big beard, was sleeping in a chair on the porch when I arrived. I had a hard time waking him to ask permission to photograph as he was a very sound sleeper, despite having loud rock music playing!

When he woke, he invited me to sit and talk, and told me that his name was Bill. The flag belonged to his father, a World War II veteran. The object on the pedestal on the table in front of the flag is a life-size plastic skull.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
