raiosunshine "And it's beginning to snow." // RENT lyrics for Christmas Eve are only fitting. Happy to spend Christmas Eve with my family doing one of our favorite traditions - our Christmas picnic. As we opened presents, it started to snow! It was beautiful. I hope you are enjoying your favorite holiday tradition with your family. 1d

raiosunshine Yesterday, I received my #ornamentswaparoo package! I received this very cool ornament, along with an Indiana cookie cutter and nice card from my swap partner. It was nice to receive such a nice surprise on a difficult day for me. Thanks @dmarieolsen for organizing something so nice! 2d

raiosunshine I came back from lunch and it was "snow globe" snowing. I stopped to snap a few photos of our building looking beautiful in the falling snow. #LandmarksWinter #indianalandmarks 1w

raiosunshine #ChangingCity :: a tale of two houses. The one on the right was part of @indianalandmarks FLIP program and was recently sold to someone who is rehabbing it. The one on the left could be just as great if given the opportunity. I love living in #FallCreekPlace for the opportunity to see the housing stock change on a near daily basis. #houseportrait 1w

raiosunshine The light inside the lobby at Eskenazi always warms my soul. I'd imagine it was designed that way. #igersindy 1w

raiosunshine “The Greenest Building is the One Already Built.” // Attributed to architect Carl Elefante
For #WHPwordstoimages, I chose a saying/quote I strongly believe in at the very core of my life. As a preservationist, I know historic buildings are one of our greatest community assets. One of the easiest ways to be "green" is to use what we already have in terms of housing stock - let's not waste resources to build new. I thought it was only fitting to illustrate with a green historic house.

raiosunshine Don't try and mail your letters here, seriously. You'll be disappointed. During our "warm spell" today I went for a little walk around downtown. #igersindy 2w

raiosunshine Considering this weekend's @instagram hashtag project is totally my jam, I have a trazillion (yes, that's a technical term) ideas for buildings to photograph and post... But not enough time. Here's one in #downtownindy I'm sure many of you will recognize. 3w

raiosunshine When I saw @instagram announce #WHPgeometry, I immediately started thinking of all the #straightfacades shots in Indy I've been longing to take... Here's one of a few I went out and got today. #indyarchitecture 3w
