Day 4 – Hoosier Boy and Hoosier Girl
Today’s post is in honor of my friend and former professor, Dana Hildebrand. Dana is a photographer and an artist, and lost her art studio to a huge maple tree during one of the recent weekend storms. She still is unsure how much of her artwork was damaged, but hopefully all is not lost.
These photos were actually taken back on October 11, 2008, and they were taken by my daughter Macy, who was 9 years old at the time. We went to Rising Sun, Indiana to spend the day with Dana and to see the museum that is her home away from home, the Ohio County Historical Society Museum. Dana painted a huge Ohio river scene that now serves as the backdrop for the Hoosier Boy and the Hoosier Girl boats that are now safely housed at the museum.
I wanted to post these today because Dana played a huge role in my success in college, and also planted the photography seed in my daughter. And hopefully it will cheer her up just a little bit. 🙂
The flag is the original flag that was on the Hoosier Girl back in the day.
