The last of the night photos. This is the Evans Center, where the COM, Nursing School and Visual Arts department is located. I may have already mentioned this place. It is a very interesting building and it’s especially cool at night. I’m beginning to get a little more used to it, though I do still miss Fisher Hall.
As we walked around, freezing cold, I noticed this tree. It was weirdly lit by a nearby lamp post. The light landed perfectly on the tree and I saw this picture right away. I asked Hannah to go stand in front of the tree and I got this. A perfect background, great light and a beautiful model, all put together by chance.
This is another photo for the assignment this week. It hasn’t been the warmest this week and of course it’s always colder at night. But there are still photos to be made. Hannah has the same assignment and while we were out I got this one of her. There is this weird door on the side of the Evans center that I have shot before, but I found it boring. So Hannah modeled for me and it made for a much better photo.
Because Hannah had to take it easy this weekend and her medicine made her tired we just relaxed at home. It was a lazy weekend but we got to see our cats, MJ is the one in the photo, and she baked some pretty great cookies. It’s never been hard for me to relax and be lazy but for some it can be. It was a good thing that she was forced to just relax and take things slow. Everyone needs that. Time to rest and take a break from things.
So today was interesting to say the least. It started off nice as some of my classes were canceled. I took one of the easiest Survey tests I have taken and then I got to go on a great date with Hannah. We went to the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit at the IMA which was very nice and then we went out to dinner. I got to relax for a while and then I went to help a friend with a photography assignment. We had to practically move the studio to another building to set up her shot. In the middle of it though things took a different direction. I got a text saying Hannah was going to hospital with her parents. Which scared me to death. So I ran across campus and went to the hospital with her. It was an issue with her bleeding disorder and we had to go to the ER. For an emergency room they were quite slow and we didn’t leave until almost 3 a.m. In the middle of it all there were also shooter on the loose running around in the area of the hospital. It was a crazy day. It was scary too. I know it’s cliché, but you really find out how much you love someone in situations like this. Getting that text was one of the scariest things I got. I immediately started shaking. It luckily ended up not being anything all that serious, but still it was scary. You realize how important that person is. It was awful waiting and wondering what was going on. It was great to get out of there, knowing she was safe and okay.
