I find myself returning to spots I have photographed so many times, those that are familiar. As I recover from surgery, walking my college campus can be a very relaxing, exercise filled activity.Took these shots at Fitchburg State University, in Fitchburg, MA, with the Canon Rebel G, 50mm f/1.8 EF lens, red Hoya filter, and Kodak TMax 100 film. There is a lot of work being done on the campus, including a new science building, and an addition to the Hammond Building, which is the campus center/library.
As mentioned in this blog a few months ago, colleges and universities can be great places to photograph, and even great places to talk film photography and darkroom technique, if your there is a darkroom/ photo lab there. The grounds can also be quite scenic and photogenic.
Every time I visit this campus, it is wonderful. In part because it is my alma mater, filled with memories to last a lifetime. In a future blog, I will recount a visit to a different campus, one that was far from friendly and memorable. Well, memorable for far different reasons.
