Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Searching my name on the internet the other night, I ran across a couple features I shot last May at the Indianapolis 500 for the Indianapolis Star. Although I’m from Indiana, this was actually my first Indy 500. My main job that day was working on an online feature the Star runs called 500 Faces, which is basically photos of 500 different race day personalities. I was in the infield the entire day working on this, but while I was at it I shot a few features:

Preparing for Dalai Lama visit

Saturday was a very busy, but interesting day for me. It was my graduation from Indiana University-Bloomington. But before I headed to the ceremony, I shot an assignment for the Indianapolis Star. The Dalai Lama is visiting the state next week with teachings in Bloomington and Indianapolis. While he’s in Bloomington, he will be staying at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center. The Dalai Lama’s late brother started the center South of Bloomington. My task was to shoot some of the preparations at the center before his visit. While I was there, one of the dignitaries arrived, and I was able to get a few shots of his arrival (see the second to last photo).

Artisan Ron Roberts works on a Mani Khorlo prayer wheel in a new structure on Saturday 8, 2010, at the Bloomington Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center. Monks and volunteers are preparing the cultural center for a visit from the Dalai Lama on May 12 and 14.
