Top 200 Photos: #144

Back to Cornell for this Top 200 Photo. photo #144 is: One thing that all Cornellians should make sure to do is climb the iconic Clocktower. It’s so great to just look out over the entire campus that you spend all day navigating. I climbed it about four or so times and each time I …

Back to Cornell for today’s Top 200 Photos. photo #149 is: I’ve already spoken about Slope Day in a previous post. We have one other huge tradition at Cornell – Dragon Day. I’m not sure if there will be more Dragon Day photos (I’ve only captured up to photo #121 at this time), but I …

Top 200 Photos: #153

Still at Cornell for this Photo. photo #153 is: I was just walking back to my apartment when I passed by this mail truck. I’d never seen the inside of a mail truck before, so I took the shot. I also remember thinking it was neat how the back of the truck framed the inside …

Top 200 Photos: #154

Back to Cornell for today’s entry in Top 200 Photos. photo #154 is: One day we were just walking around campus and just pulled into the stadium to watch some lacrosse.

Top 200 Photos: #160

We stay at Cornell for this entry in the Top 200 Photos. photo #160 is: This has to be in the top 3 most depressing photos I took at Cornell. There’s a certain beauty in the photo, especially now that I don’t have to deal with that weather anymore, but just remembering trudging up that …

Top 200 Photos: #161

Back to Cornell for today’s Top 200 Photo photo #161 is: Ah, the Cornell Arts Quad. It’s where everyone plays frisbee. It’s where a large portion of Cornellians go to class.

Top 200 Photos:#172

Back to Cornell for today’s Top 200 Photo. photo #172 is: Slope Day is an annual day of debauchery at Cornell, taking place on the last day of classes. Slope Day has gone through quite a few evolutions. This photo was taken in 2002, my freshman year, which was the last year in which Slope …

Top 200 Photos: #176

No #177 because it was already covered. photo #176 is: John Cleese is a comedic genius. I think that history will eventually give him and his Monty Python collaborators a place equivalent to Charlie Chaplin. They helped transform not only British comedy, but American comedy. Many in the US, most notably the creators of South …

Top 200 Photos: #185

For the Top 200 Photos, photo #185 is: This arch is part of some of the oldest dorms on Cornell’s campus as well as being an arched entryway to West Campus. In 2001 when I started at Cornell, they made the change that all Freshmen would be on North Campus and all the Upperclassmen would …

Top 200 Photos: #187

Today’s Top 200 Photo. photo #187: What I love about this photo is that it captures two things that were key to the Cornell experience – passing out quarter cards (known as carding) and attending a Capella performances. It’s not far-fetched that the Andy character from The Office was in an a Capella group at …

Top 200 Photos #188

Today’s Top 200 Photo. photo #188 is: I got my first digital camera over Christmas of my freshman year. It changed my photography forever.

Back to Cornell for this entry in Top 200 Photos. photo #189 is: This photo is from of the earliest batch of photos I uploaded to flickr.  I had just discovered Photoshop and was using what I learned from a book to create paintings from my photos.  After spending a good semester doing stuff like …

Top 200 Photos: Photo #198

In my Top 200 most viewed photos, Photo #198 is:   When people find out that I’m from Florida ask me how I’m dealing with winters in Maryland, I just smile and tell them that I went to university in Ithaca, so no Maryland winter can compare with what I’ve seen. Cornell tends to be …
