We stayed in Long Island and watched football all day this day; but we did get an opportunity to go out to eat at a local restaurant – Caffee Amici.
We were all very tired, so it was good to just sit and visit.
They will be uploaded in the order they were taken to keep with my theme.
I chose to make this one black and white as a tribute to the city that helped give me my photographic knowledge. Most of the stuff I shot back then was black and white.
This is obviously Times Square. It was mayhem.
I loved it!
I strolled through the UTC campus after work today looking for a photo of the day and came across this door. I graduated from here, but I went to 3 different colleges. (money was the primary reason I kept quitting and switching)
But anyway, this door seems to be on every college campus – no matter the year or the city. When I saw it, my mind instantly flashed back to the art school I attended for a couple of years in New York City – The School of Visual Arts. Being an art school, almost every wall looked like this door.
I have some fond memories from UTC, too; and it was odd walking through there today seeing so many renovations going on. It certainly has grown since I went there. Another school I attended (for one year) was MTSU. It has grown into the largest university in Tennessee. Who would have thought?
I’m thankful for my opportunity to attend all of the schools I went to. They all gave me a great education, but I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had had the chance (and money) to finish SVA. I wonder if I would be living in NYC now, or if I would still have come home to stay. I love New York, but deep down, the South is in my heart and soul.
I know one thing, I would NEVER be able to pay for college now. The cost has risen astronomically – to the point I don’t see how anyone affords it.
