Pictures from Around the Campus

I've been taking some time lately when I'm on campus, between classes, to relax and look around. I've gotten into the habit of keeping my camera around whenever I see something that really intrigues me. I'm rather obsessed with clouds, for some reason.

Once I was sitting in my favorite spot on the stone bench which looks out towards the mountains, and I somehow managed to get a shot of a blue jay in mid-flight; it was just changing directions before flying almost vertically into a tree.

Another one of my favorite experiences was a couple weeks ago, when I could see reflections of the sky on the cement right after it finished raining.

From some angles, the puddles almost looked like portals into another world.

I don't know what it is about having a camera in my hand, but it makes me look at the world differently. Even if I'm just on a lunch break.
