Sharon Audubon

An evening at Mudge Pond

In the morning the light is quite different

Three boys, two swings

The clouds haven't moved in yet...and it's hot out!

Not everyone wants to swim.

Some people just enjoy hanging out

The lifeguards are off duty

I don't want to swim when the water's like this!

It's a peaceful evening.

The clouds are moving in

Time to head in for the night

A June Evening in Sharon

The sun was low in the sky when we set out...

Past the fields with corn finally beginning to grow...

Past the barn where evening chores were beginning...

And the calves were hoping we had something for them....

Into the woods, where the chipmunk...

And the deer were enjoying the lovely evening.

My last photo before my camera battery went dead is to show that nature isn't the only interesting thing to look at in Sharon.

More pictures from the monthly Sharon Volunteer Ambulance breakfast.

A lot of happy customers...

It's very relaxing...

Shout out to Janet, who reads my blog!

Thanks for the pancakes, Mom!

Bright College Years

A cathedral of scholarship - Sterling LIbrary. Beyond its obvious attributes, it has wonderful acoustics for singing groups, and the graffiti in the stacks goes back I don't know how far. I didn't check to see if my contributions were still there. Posted by Picasa

Every doorway is unique. Posted by Picasa

The women's table, designed by Maya Lin. It's inscribed with each year since women were allowed to attend, with the number attending in that year. I'm not sure this child gets the significance - hopefully it won't be an issue in any way by the time she's ready to matriculate. Posted by Picasa
Inside Beinecke Library it glows through the marble walls. Posted by Picasa

Is there something symbolic and interesting about this picture - the mix of old and new, perhaps? I appreciate the effort the school is making to environmentally sensitive. Posted by Picasa

Not quite sure who this fellow is - the inscriptions are illegible and apparently in Greek. He was presiding, somewhat ignominiously, over a giant tent set up for the reunion. Posted by Picasa

Nathan Hale, and the building he lived in, in1775. Posted by Picasa

Much of the campus was built in the 1930's with gothic cathedral-style carvings. When I went to school here I never looked at them very closely. Now that I've seen real gothic cathedrals in Europe I paid more attention, noticing the elaborate and beautiful workmanship and the fact that all the imagery is secular, not religious. Posted by Picasa
