college kids

I have a soft spot in my heart for college kids: they seem so young, they’re vulnerable but maybe don’t know it, they try so hard. Sometimes when I see a college student eating alone, I want to (1) cry, (2) go sit with them, (3) buy their lunch, and sometimes (4) call up their mom. I know it’s weird, and I can’t help it.

So this sign telling college students when they could get a food box? Goodness, it broke my heart.

PS – the tendency of people my age to blame all the wrongs of society on college-age kids really pisses me off. I mean, things are the way they are because that’s what we left for them. They JUST GOT HERE. Give them a chance and give them a break. [End of speech.]


Yes, of course I had to look over the bridge railing to see what was going on on the river level. No surprises, really, other than the way the sun hit that fishing line.

That family over there seems to be a little skeptical about what is going on with the fountain. And in spite of how the photo looks, they didn’t actually get wet. As far as I know.

Views from hotel rooms are something I will always photograph. (For example: San Diego; Stroud, Oklahoma; San Antonio; Oklahoma City; and Memphis.)

And here’s what I could see from a hotel room in San Francisco.

Sometimes images will just hang around on my computer for, say, 1,228 days between when I make them and when they emerge here.

I don’t really have an explanation, or an excuse. It’s just the way it worked out.
