Purdue Memorial Union

Here is another from The Union. Just a touch of Christmas here, but the staircase is impossible to resistĀ takingĀ a photo of. This is the central staircase in the building. I couldn’t help but wonder about the number f students who had traipsed up and down these steps. It was opened in 1924 and completed in 1929. So just imagine over 80 years of students in this busy hall. Lots of history here.

Happy Holidays!

Here’s a Happy Holiday picture for today. This was taken at The Purdue Memorial Union at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. This tree was put up a couple weeks ago, yet I had to wait until this weekend when most of the students cleared out to try a few shots. This place is usually swarming with people! It helped as well that I was there at 6:30 a.m. There weren’t many people around except for some security folk who hovered around me for a few and then went about their business. I guess it’s not often they see someone packing a tripod in the early hours there.

I hope that everyone has a great season!
