Around this time last year, Greg and I traveled around with our son Evan to look at the universities he was considering for his Master’s Degree. I have to say this about college campus tours - we enjoy the heck out of them.
There was the plain pleasure of getting to travel and spend time with our son, but there was really more to it than that. I felt a great urge at each campus we visited to submit transcripts myself…although for what purpose, I can’t imagine. And besides who the heck knows where my transcripts might be anyhow? Most likely, they are buried deep down in some box somewhere…After all, I went to college before the advent of computers.
We visited four places: University of Rhode Island, Syracuse University, University at Albany (SUNY) and Rutgers University because those are most of the schools in this area that offer a Masters in Library Science. Each campus has a unique character and I loved photographing them. Unfortunately, it was raining so hard the day we were at Rutgers, I was afraid for my camera and didn’t get any usable photos of the campus. That is something I regret. But I did manage a photo of the rain.
Evan ended up at Syracuse University and I ended up thinking what a plum job it would be just being able to travel around the country to take photos of college campuses.
