As the rains continue to drown Indianapolis, let’s look back on a sunny day in Oaklandon, wherein Sassy and I took a stroll after visiting the death of a beloved park. No, the rain doesn’t depress me, I just really loved that park.
It was so sunny that day I couldn’t even see what I was photographing. Mmhm. I have a lot of these — this is THE BEST ONE.
Cute blue shed is cute. So cute, even its hardware is trusting.
Coupla houses with doors NOT on the sunny side — Sunnyside. Heh. That’s a locale pun. Only a local can heh to that.
This is some sorta used-to-be church with beautiful lines that houses offices now.
Also, it has lovely windows.

Shout out to all my fellow UUers! Bout five of you, yeah?
Sadie’s bottom and floofy tail really add some life, I think.
Another placard fail; I tried to put enough color and contrast into the dates to read them, but I could not. I went to their site and read about fires and how they raised funds to rebuild, and it would seem to be actually established in 1838 and rebuilt again after two fires in 1920 and 1925. If you’re into history, it’s a good lil read entitled “The Little Church That Could.”
The building is recognized by state and national historic registers.
