Northwestern University: Pictures!

Here are some pictures from last week's adventure. I didn't take as many pictures this time around:

O'Hare International Airport. I thought the lights were cool.

The lakeside, with Chicago in the background. Beautiful view.

A few of the many rocks that are painted near the lake. I found this to be pretty unique.

McCormick Auditorium.

The ever-changing Rock... with a message apparently made by a conservative. Boo.

Lastly, Deering Library.

Great photos, but we wanted to see pictures with you and your mother in them! Remember we want to capture what you learned and how you connected with people on campus.

If you get a chance please post some pictures that capture your joy and excitement at being at Northwestern. We would love to see you in your Northwestern outfits.

Take care.

I agree with Mr. Ramsey that we would have loved to have seen photos with you in them, I still loved seeing what you posted.

I've taken a few snapshots over the years but with well over a million images in my archives there are very few with me as the subject. Part of the problem is that I don't often trust a stranger well enough to hand them a ten thousand dollar camera to take my photo. And second, even with so many of my friends and family members that I've trusted to snap my photo, they just don't have the eye for a good photo.

As much as I enjoyed the photos, Steph, your comments under them were important to me. Your comment about the SOB who was against Living Wages tells me a lot about you.

I have to disagree with you, though, about the "unique" rocks along the shoreline that have been painted. In many communities they call that vandalism. We see that all too often in our own community. More often than not, though, rather than a message about how Billy luvs Suzee we see messages marking turf and threatening the lives of transgressors. Maybe I can come to Northwestern, too. I like their messages better than ours.
