These two photos are among the very first photos I every took with a DSLR camera. They were a part of my motion project in my first digital photography class at SUNY Oswego. I thought it might be fitting to use them in my first weekly entry to Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge.

Fall-ing Down Steps

The pun in the title is even more appropriate if you know that none of these leaves were on these steps before I took this photo. I had to take an armful of leaves and scatter them on the stairway for the look I wanted. When I was taking my landscape photography class at SUNY Oswego, I tried each week to plan out where I would shoot and what my images would look like, (so that I could try to ensure that when I submitted my photos for that week, there would be variety among them.) When the idea to shoot here popped into my head, somehow I was able to plan exactly how I wanted the image to look, and it came out true to form which had never happened to me before.

Architecturally Artistic

Boston by Augustana was the unofficial anthem of our trip. Considering we traveled there for an honors conference, and part of the lyrics of this song are “where no one knows my name,” I suppose it’s good that the actual event took place in Cambridge!
