Who needs a photo of the Sears Tower when you’ve got this keeper?

I don’t see what’s wrong with it?
My guess is that this was taken on a Sunday (due to little to no traffic) and from the shadow of the Sun sometime around 10am-ish, just East of the North-Split on I-70 West. Lived in Indy for 13+ years. Great City 🙂 Funny thing is, that looks kinda like my Black car there by his right shoulder 😛
I want to know what time of day that was taken. I HATE driving to downtown Indianapolis. Not much traffic would make the drive a lot nicer.
I lived in Indiana for 25 years and made this stretch often. Deja vu!
it reminds me of the song “The Way”….i wonder if they know where they are
Hahah, I love it. I live right here in Indy so the I-70 west exit ramps to 65 and downtown are an everyday occurrence for me!
Indy is my home.. definitely Indy.
Same here. Go Naptown!
We got stranded on the highway once when I was a kid (right down the road from grandma’s house). So as we were walking to get to her exit my dad decided to take a picture of us on the side of the road like we were tourists. I’m glad he’s not the only one that does stuff like that!
Ok, WHY are they standing there? Did they walk there? Where is the traffic??
Hey I get confused here all the time going to downtown Indy looking for the darn Children’s museum…ask my kids…we totally end up headed for Chi-town…maybe they were just stopping for a closer look:)
I used to drive through this interchange (“the north split” on traffic reports) every single day. Don’t ever remember the roads being this deserted! It’s almost like they completely stopped traffic!
I think the comment about the “Sears Tower” is in reference to the I-65 North sign, pointing toward Chicago, over the couple.
They have to be either named Fletcher or be from Michigan or Ohio, otherwise WHY?!
I was thinking they must be Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher too!
I love this pic. She’s like as far away as possible from grandpa, and they are too old to care about being geeky..lol.. ANd maybe she thought it was a stupid picture moment
Yep, I work in one of those buildings and I just drove down that road not 15 minutes ago. It’s I-70 facing West. I just took the Michigan exit! LOL! I was totally shocked to see this!
That’s actually 65 North, right before the south split. How funny that they thought this was a good idea for a photo. Maybe they liked the Indy skyline & thought it would be their only chance to get a pic? LOL.
Actually thats I-70 East.
It’s I-70 West. The guy had it right the first time.
No, he didn’t. It is I-70 West but it’s right before the north split
Not the safest place to just pull off to road for a photo op in Indy, either! haha That’s a spot that roads are splitting several different ways, and (stupid) drivers often get confused. Hope they made it back into their car and back onto the highway (where most drive 80+) safely! lol
Unless you are broken down doing this type of thing on an interstate highway is illegal.
To all: NEWSFLASH. It’s now called the Willis Tower. I will still call it the Sears Toweor though. Who cares if it has no more office space used by Sears.
Seeing the Sears Tower from Indianapolis would be quite a feat.
Like Sarah Palin seeing Russia from Alaska.
Like everybody else, I was going to point out that they are posing in front of Indianapolis, Indiana. The Sears Tower is in Chicago, Illinois.
Somebody here doesn’t know their geography.
That’s Indianapolis!!! hahah So there wouldn’t be the Sears tower anyway… but still a quality pic!
This one made me laugh so loudly my kids came running to see it!! I actually snorted!!!
Ha Ha I just had a flat tire here Indianapolis, In.
I actually like this picture..
It doesn’t seem like there’s that much space between people until you see the photo.
The Indy AAA baseball team has done better than the cubs this past century
this is definitely indianapolis.
they just wanted to save on gas money.
thats totally Indy
Take a baby from the middle, put it on top…BABY JENGA!
