This afternoon, I arrived at the Houston airport hours before my flight because I shared a cab from the workshop, and I’ve been fighting with Boingo while attempting to get some work done. To relieve some of the stress, I decided to play with photos in Lightroom and found these that I took last Monday morning.
This is the pond that has been the subject of many of my ranch shots.
I like the juxtaposition between the hazy backlit mist and the crystal clear sky reflected on the pond’s surface.
My fingers were beginning to freeze but I refused to stop until I caught the rising sun backlighting the mist hovering over the pond.
I’ve spent the past few days on the beautiful campus of Rice University in Houston, Texas. I am a little sad to report that I have seen nothing of Houston itself, spending my time either on the campus or at the hotel; however, it’s been a productive workshop and I’ve learned a lot about teaching Language and Literature according to IB standards. Oh my goodness, they are rigorous … and it looks like a LOT of work for both me and my students…but I digress. During breaks, wandered a bit, especially around Lovett Hall, the oldest building on campus at 100 years. (Taken with Canon G12)
Now, isn’t this just the very image of academia?
The arched walkways invite one to linger and learn, right?
