More than Meets the Eye in Higher Education Photography Part 2

Pella Baloney, Earthquakes, Mummies, Neil Armstrong and Wind Turbines : Part 2

~For me it’s a given that colleges and universities unique personalities are the combination campus life and environment. Traveling this fall, I made a point of exploring the surrounding towns and country sides as time allowed.~

Spending a week at Purdue University this fall provided me with the unique opportunity to immerse myself into the details of campus life. I stayed in a guest apartment in Windsor Hall. Purdue really is West Lafayette. The marching band works their way from Elliott Hall via 3rd Street to their practice field near Windsor weekdays at 3pm. Amelia Earhart lived in Windsor. I ate in every dining hall on campus and learned about The Breakfast Club. Oh and I did work in the Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering. I came home with a wonderful commemorative poster produced by Purdue Creative Services.

I left Purdue heading north toward Chicago. About twenty minutes after getting on I-65  I passed through the Fowler Ridge Wind Farm which is on track to becoming one of the largest in the world. Oh my, what a sight. Next time I’m up that way I want to photograph it at night!
