As the summer rolls in, the kids come out in full force. Today’s POTD is for the kids.
It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally bringing you round 2 of my small business spotlight series. This one focuses on a friend of mine, Adam Odgaard, who happens to own Clean Reflections Detailing, one of the few high-end mobile detailing companies in Indianapolis. He started the business fairly recently just a couple of years ago, but already Adam has become the go-to guy for car enthusiasts across town. Among a few of the cars in his portfolio are Porsches, Audis, BMWs, Ferraris, and the Maserati GranTurismo S featured here. Read ahead for more details.
Each year, just before the annual Winged Warrior event, founder Dr. Kevin Butterfield and crew head downtown to Riley Hospital for Children to have them decorate one of the race cars. The kids come out to the front entrance of Riley and waiting for them this year was a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, fully decked out and ready for race day. It’s good witnessing this event, because it really reminds me of what this event is really about. It was great to see the smiles on the youngster’s faces as they, probably for the only time in their lives, are able to write and draw on a perfectly good automobile. Check out the photos below.
Also, to any parents/guardians who might read this, two things: If you do not want this picture online, just email me and I will take it down. If you see a photo that you want a copy of, also email me with your shipping information, and I will send you a disc with all of the photos of your child. It’s the least I can do.
If you don’t already know, I’ve picked up an internship with the Kelley School of Business at IUPUI in downtown Indy taking photos for them for whatever project they might need. While most are fairly square and just require some portraits here and there, this “Leave Your Legacy” project, I thought, should be worth posting. The idea is that the graduating senior comes up with a short quote/phrase that he or she would like to pass along to the rest of the school to keep them motivated and striving to do and be better. While I didn’t get as much time and creative freedom as I really wanted, I still really liked the outcome of these photos. Check them out.
