The Sample Gates at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN

This photo was taken as I visited Bloomington in early August 2014. The Sample Gates were constructed here in the 1980s, replacing what use to be the main road that lead into the old part of campus. This area is featured in one of the scenes from the 1979 movie Breaking Away, which was filmed entirely in Bloomington in and around the Indiana University campus.

This is a bittersweet shot for me because I am a graduate of Indiana University, so Bloomington and the Indiana University campus have a very special place in my heart. Take a look at my Indiana University photos, all of which can be purchased as prints and are collegiate licensed products under license by Indiana University Office of Licensing and Trademarks.

I take as many opportunities as I can to get to Bloomington to photograph the campus. The campus itself is so large that there is an infinite number of possibilities for different angles and perspectives. Each season is unique and the diverse landscape brings photo opportunities around virtually every corner. Be sure to check out the rest of my photo blog, including photos of downtown Indianapolis!
