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 >_<
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!
