Urban growth is a subject particularly close to my heart. In Fort Wayne, no one is doing a better job of fostering the seeds of creativity than Dan Swartz and his cohorts and collaborators at Wunderkammer Co. A few months back Dan organized with local gardeners, agriculturalists, students, and activists to raise money and awareness for urban gardens in Fort Wayne. I've been holding on to these for an embarrassingly long period of time. 

 In love with the graffiti surrounding the building.

 Really drawn to these patterns in the glass. The artist is dragging a piece of blue glass in geometric shapes. Neat.
