A quiet walk around campus

After a delicious brunch of biscuits and gravy with eggs, cheese, and chorizo sausage:

with Bryan's family, who are in town for a few days, I took a short walk around campus to clear my head. It's nice to see them, but also sad, and I needed some alone time to process a little.

Fortunately, spring break started on Friday, so walking around campus is pretty solitary:

Ayres Hall, renovated

Not a student in sight.

I wasn't really looking for anything in particular, just walking, thinking, and snapping random images:

bike horn

fire stairs

doorframe stonework

In addition to working on my black and white some more:

I also did a little bit of playing with color:

bright window

I'm not sure I like that, but I took it with the intention of coming home and tweaking the hell out of the saturation, so yay for deliberate photography over point and click, I guess.

I also took about five versions of this one, which I think is the best picture I took today:

flag in windows

I like that photo a lot, and also, I feel better.

Wow, that last photo is gorgeous, Joel! I am sad I missed the Murphys' visit - I know it is rough.
Love from Philly!

Great shots as usual. Especially the last one, and the bike horn. Nice contrast..you have an excellent eye for B&W.
