Time to Lighten Up

It's time to lighten up. More journaling awaits me tomorrow. I'll have a lot of time to kill while Don has his second eye surgery so I'll write while I'm waiting. In the meanwhile, I'll post a few pics.

Mainstage lobby. A study in circles and squares. Biene and I lunch here twice a week before going out for our walk to the campus store for coffee (her) and a bottle of ice tea (me).


Our walks around the lake always treat us to a funny sight. This time around it looks like one of the big guys of the lake is impatient with the other to get out of his way.




In the campus art gallery, the end of year show is always a display of graduating seniors' works. This mixed media work covered in glass and framed in mirrors (cropped from this image) shows my reflection and reflects the art work on the wall opposite.



Up and down the valley, one can see the common sight of a granary waiting to unload their stores into the beds of the passing trains.


Gus just receiving the news that he will be losing an ear. "Oh NO!!"














Summer of '95, I'm in Paris walking the streets just below Montmartre. This man's lonely image captured my imagination. My 35 mm camera and twightlight conspired to make this oddly eerie portrait.

I like the Paris photo - your right it does have an eerie quality about it, one brooding A Hitler came to my mind!

I have thought of nothing else for the past four hours here as I sit alone in my little office while my hubby is out.

I do hope mine makes sence as I love the way you put your meme together your questions you put to yourself were answered.

I love that you included the theater lobby where you and Biene meet for lunch; now I can picture you there.

That last photo really is eerie, almost unreal looking (at the least where the man is standing).

Wishing Don the best tomorrow (actually today). Hope all goes as planned.

You must work on a beautiful campus as your photos are always beautiful.
Paris? We'd love to go sometime...
Love the light on the photo :)

Oh, love the campus photos. I'm partial to the photo of the grainery, as I grew up in a farming community and there was always one as part of the landscape. ;)

I'm sending good thoughts to both Don and Gus.

What great shots Annie...loved them all. I had a pure white cat named Manana - she's gone...but that was a nice memory of her.
That lost picture....very errie and intersting...almost like a drawing.
Good work....Good post!

The reflection picture was so good to see. It is like catching a sight of how others see us in this fast moving train of life, how odd that we then see the man in the window in Paris...artistry never sleeps does it?

The photo is absolutely surreal. I did not think it was an actual photo at first.

I miss my dear Dusty Cat so much, but after 18 1/2 years she had to leave us and go to heaven to be with Kristen's friend, Tonya, a cat lover.

Great photos - I especially liked the Paris shot. It really cries out for an emotional response!
