the sixth official governor's home ever since.
The Indy Meetup Photo Club group I was with did not seek to shoot indoors (I found out after our visit that the first floor of the home is open to the public, but I didn't know that beforehand), but we were welcome to shoot the exterior. This was my first time ever on the grounds.
I found out only a day or two before the shoot that the previous Governor's Residence, used from 1945-73, was only four blocks south of, and on the opposite side of the street from, this site. Now a private residence, it would be our next stop on the itinerary.
Rather than spend a lot more space blabbering, as I did for the first two installments in this series, I'm going to proceed directly to pictures, leading off with a color-splashed autumnal vista in a multifaceted back yard. I'll stick with backside images before transitioning to the front shots. I don't know a lot of background or history about the landscapes or items you see in the landscapes, as we had no grounds person to walk us through with its history. If I did, I'd offer some explanation in the captions.
Next stop on the shoot: Private home at 4343 N. Meridian St. that served as the Governor's Residence from 1945-73.
