Eight days ago, I spent an afternoon in and around my alma mater, Columbia University, photographing the sights. I had hoped to take a somewhat more panoramic view, from the top steps of the administration building, Low Library, but that area was cordoned off to allow for a student activity charmingly called Bacchanal.
Well, no matter. One thing, evidently, hasn’t changed since my graduation over 30 years ago: the desire of students to go outside on a fine spring day (especially tossing a Frisbee around). There’s nothing like feeling young, with the warmth of the sun lifting your spirits after a long, hard winter.
