I bought me some Zen food to learn how to think, but I can't think of anything I'd more adore than to see you in the pink

I took the above photos while walking around Radford yesterday. These are all from the "light side" of the RU campus. I may post a series of "light side" (7-11) images over the next few days, and then post a few of the "dark side" (Deli-Mart) next week. The dichotomy--or continuum--of "light side" and "dark side" of RU interests me, particularly because they have similar housing, etc.

I initially decided to walk around and take photos because I had plans to do a "student housing" series of Radford. I was envisioning one or two plain apartment buildings, a simple house or two, apartments joined with old houses, etc. I suppose I had dismissed Radford as a source for photos, and I wasn't particularly excited with my "student housing" plan, but I'm relatively happy with some of the above images. The only thing that bothers me about them is that they aren't as technically "good" as I'd like them to be--the white balance seems to be off, the contrast is odd, etc.

As anyone who viewed the blog last night knows, I deleted several photos I had taken of CSI, the one with David Caruso. I kind of think they made for an interesting juxtaposition with the housing photos, but I really prefer the idea of presenting a sort of photographic tour of Radford. I took the CSI photos at a friend's house because it was intolerably boring to watch, but somehow interesting to photograph. I may repost the CSI stuff later--the absurd images from commercials heighten the weirdness of David Caruso's facial expressions.

This morning when I was getting ready for the day, I looked back over your set of photos and thought about the awesomeness of them. Now that you've edited the set down, I don't like it as much. Once more, you've disappointed me. Good job.

You know, if you don't follow through with the decisions you coerce me into making for you, I'm not going to make them any more.
