‘Tis the season for…well, some holiday inspired pics!
I went with a friend to the Eiteljorg Museum to view a wonderful photo exhibit a few weeks ago. While we were there we also made a stop at their annual “Jingle Rails” exhibit. What fun!!
The entire (large!) room was full of miniature buildings and different model train set ups.
Since the museum focusing on the art of the western United States most of the lovely buildings were small replicas of lodges and other gorgeous sites from that region.
I hadn’t anticipated taking any photos on our excursion and was caught at a rare time I didn’t have one of my cameras on hand.
Thank goodness for cell phones! I especially enjoy taking photos on it using some of the “alternate” cameras you can download so these all have some different effects or sizing to them to make them even more “magical”. 🙂
Along with the wonderful western scenes they also had a section that represented Indianapolis. One section showed the state fair midway – which you don’t usually get to see in the wintertime!
It was fun to see our town in a small scale! There was a larger section featuring downtown buildings and landmarks.
They even had a small version of Lucas Oil Stadium, home of our Colt’s football team.
I think my favorite had to be the miniature “Christmas Tree” that is constructed each year by stringing lights on the monument in the circular center of Indy.
I hope you enjoyed this wintery tour of the exhibit and that you are enjoying the holiday season!
