Yui’s Day Out

By , July 8, 2010 11:36 pm

A few weeks back, I was able to spend a nice (and hot) Saturday afternoon strolling through downtown Indianapolis.  Yui decided to come along for the round as well ^^;

Started out the journey with a nice little sunflower field oasis in a desert of heat-radiating streets and parking lots.

The Canal is a popular place to spend leisure time downtown.  Decided to walk around the area ^^

That… actually looks pretty fun xD

A broken clock.  I just liked the look of it.

The IUPUI campus is right nearby so lots of students out and about.

Yui-chan enjoying a rare breeze in the hot afternoon sun.

Yui-chan wearing her new outfit.  It has a sort of military look to it with the camo top.

Got a lot of funny looks while taking photos of Yui in such a busy area ^^;

Water fountain!  So hot it almost makes you want to jump in >_<

Yui salute!

Outfit came with a cute cap which came in handy on this very sunny day.

Moving on, we came to the state capitol building. The sky is so blue it looks fake, but it’s not, I promise ^^;

Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument in the center of the city.  The area is generally known as ‘The Circle’.

I worked in this building for a short time.  Had a nice view of the city from the top floor :)

Hehehe ^^  There was no one kissing here though!  I felt very disappointed :-/

Was getting to hot to walk, so we decided to explore a bit more by car.  Found this decrepit, graffiti-stained building near the railroad tracks.

Gotta say, old rusty metal and graffiti-ed walls make a good photo setting xD

Last pic!  Yui wanted to look down the railroad tracks.  Had to snap this one quickly since I didn’t want to be seen (not supposed to play around on the tracks, plus this was a rather seedy part of town ^^;).  Although hastily taken, I like the way it turned out :)

Thanks for viewing.  Despite the relentless heat, we had a good time exploring the city.  Hope you liked the pics!

    I love this clothing look on Yui, it really suits her and its great to see something so different. You don’t normally see DD dressed like that. Where does the outfit come from?

    • Thanks, I liked the outfit too ^^. The outfit is from Iplehouse’s YID Girl clothing series. It’s the second Iplehouse outfit I’ve purchased and fits pretty well on DD :D

    Wow this set of clothes looks awesome,you’ve made a good choice =)
    Your pictures are also very nice, the city seems very interesting for taking a stroll.
    The last picture of Yui is my favorite, very cool like she can stand on her own.

    • Thanks, it was a fun walk ^^. Yep, Yui can stand on her on but she has to be carefully positioned so that she does not fall over. Also, a light breeze will probably knock her over ^^;

    Excellent photos of Yui around the town! ^^

    That camo top and cap look great on her. Was eying that Iplehouse outfit a while ago too but as it was out of stock then, didn’t order and never bothered to check back. Judging from your photos, it doesn’t look like the top would fit Yoko’s bust though.

    • Thanks ^^
      I don’t do any content-changing edits (like texture smoothing, removing objects, etc) but I do do some basic tweaking with white balance, contrast, exposure, saturation, and the like.
      I should post my before and after pics sometime.

    I think DD sneakers are sooooooo cute! Maybe it’s that part of me that likes to coo over baby shoes that make me adore their little shoes that look like smaller versions of real shoes.

    Nice clothes on Yui, it matches the background with the train tracks and brick wall very well. Ya, I got used to the strange looks that I get when I’m outside taking pictures lol, comes with the territory xD.

  9. TAKET0MB0 says:

    Wow such and adorable choice of clothing!
    I guess im echoing what many have said already but they really do suit Yui xD
    I love the railroad tracks image, i dont think i would be brave enough to try such a thing, or just be unlucky and choose a busy track lol

  10. Blowfish says:

    Despite the fact that this is centered around a dollfie I like these shots alot.Now get rid of that Dollfie and let a real girl pose for you for the next set.
    I think you could pull of some very nice pictures
