Old School {Personal Work}

One of my New Year's resolutions is to shoot more with film and make time for more personal work. I saw these fabulous desks through a window on campus yesterday and couldn't resist. I'm a sucker for authenticity and design in context (blame it on grad school)- I'm sure these desks are original, and I absolutely adore the detail work in the cinder blocks on the walls. They perfectly echo the exterior of the structure this room resides in. You may think it's outdated, but this room makes me grin from ear to ear. I hope those desks never wear out.

And I think I could spend an entire day inside a library with my camera. Perhaps I will.

Hey! I have a big post full of law school pictures I took last month just waiting to be blogged. How funny that you got to it first!

I had ASL in those chairs freshman year :) I can't tell you how lost I got looking for the JRC!

I love those pictures! I used to work in the law building. Ah, memories!

The holes in the brick are for air distribution... boy they look a lot cuter in the photos than I'm guessing they do in person. ;)
The air doesn't blow from the holes; I'm guessing they are a return path. Ok, ok, I'm an engineer, what a silly remark I made. ;) But really, can you imagine sitting in a lecture and the air is blowing at you from the wall?

how interesting! I figured they had a purpose, but mostly I just appreciate the visual interest they provide. Cinder blocks are pretty boring, don't you think? And no, I wouldn't appreciate trying to sit in a lecture with air blowing on me- unless I couldn't stay awake to begin with, then it might be quite useful :)
