Around Campus

Hi there! Here are some of the shapes and colors that caught my eye as I walked around the UA campus earlier this month during a running event:

















And, I have a lot of desert snapshots to share when I get a "Round Tuit."

Have a great day! :)

Very autumnal pics!
The bill thrasher caught my eye! ;-)as well as the boojum tree if it is one.
We'll have the patience to wait for your desert shots, lol.

I like the golden tree.

It stands so tall and in such a unique way.

When my children where looking at Collages and Universities that they where accepted at (we lived in Laguna Beach) We seemed to love the brick, tree lined schools of the North and East. So different for us Beach People.
But... I have to say the University Of Arizona has one of the most beautiful campus I have ever seen and it doesn't hurt that the blue sky and great weather comes with it !
I studied here and oldest son who made it is life mission to go to as may schools as he could getting his degrees, ended up at the U of A and loved it.

I always look forward to your photos. I envy your bird photos. I never get the close-up you always seem to get.
Beautiful !

cheers, parsnip

Funny to see rain lily at your place. We have lots of them here. Very nice shots and good observant of the shapes around you. Have another lovely day Diane!

The colors where you live are so warm and inviting. I know that I'm a four-seasons gal, but the older I get the more I hanker for warm climates. Wonderful light.

Nice tour around campus; it has been several years since we visited there. All of your images are impressive! I'm particularly fond of the vines growing on the red brick wall.
