Me and Ally at the UVA Rotunda
I took Mike and Ally to my college last weekend! I love this photo of Ally and me on the steps of the Rotunda. I went to the University of Virginia for a BA in psychology (1996) and an MEd in instructional technology (2001), and loved my time there. We stopped by UVA for a couple hours on Saturday afternoon and watched the students enjoying the 75-degree sunshine.
UVA is a gorgeous school with colonial architecture and gardens that are full of flowers this time of year. I just took a few photos with my point-and-shoot while we were there — after all, I’ve photographed all these spots many times over the years. At one point in the mid-90s, the guy at my photo lab joked that I was always photographing the same buildings!
The pathway under the Rotunda, leading to the Lawn
This girl was tightrope walking on the Lawn!
Several students were playing a variation of golf around the campus, using tennis balls.
Every time a tennis ball came our way, Ally hoped it was for her.

These guys were making a parody music video with colorful boxes. I think they might have been an a capella group, but I’m not sure.
When I was a studen, I always imagined bringing my future family to the Lawn on a beautiful spring day.
