I was introduced to the small Indiana town of Crown Point last May. I was instantly drawn to the 1873 Italianate/Second Empire historic Lake County courthouse at the centre of the downtown. So I knew I had to include this beautiful building in this year’s project. Sadly with all the parking around the square, it was hard to find a good angle, so this is the one I ended up settling on. Of course, as soon as I started setting up the camera, I soon found plenty of locals watching me closing, a young man with an Ontario-plated car in a small town in Indiana; what else are you going to gawk at? At least the one older gentleman who spoke to me waited until after I had finished with the exposure. Also, on an exciting note, I have reintroduced D-76 into my developing chemistry shelf.
