When my church announced its plans to build, neighbors on the side street next to our property flew into a tizzy, worried about Sunday morning traffic on their one-lane street. The only entrance to the property was on their street, so we promised we’d close it and put a new entrance on the main road. They still worried, so we promised to keep asking our members to avoid their street. Truth be told, I empathized with them. A megachurch is building a huge satellite campus across the street from my subdivision. I’m quite sure that traffic will become snarled Sunday mornings, making it difficult to enter and exit my neighborhood.
My new Canon PowerShot S95 is so svelte that it slips easily into my interior coat pocket. I carried it the other morning when the sunrise was especially lovely as I headed off to work. I liked how the morning’s colors framed the almost-finished building, so I paused for a few through-the-windshield photographs. I liked this one the best. It’s been interesting to watch this building go up over the past year, and this isn’t the first time I’ve photographed the construction. This land used to be a cornfield. A few farm fields still lurk within the Indianapolis city limits.
I end up taking a lot of photos right around my house and in my neighborhood. One of my favorites is this one of a rainy evening, as viewed from my deck.
