Steve Pepple

Oct. 7, 2004 - Tough life

Ann Arbor, Mich.

Ah, remember the days when you were a student and could lie reading on the grass
on a beautiful fall day, like this woman on the Diag at the University of Michigan?

The mood is delightful: it suggests relaxation and the broadening of one's horizons. I am gently forced to concentrate on the activity by the depth of field and lack of colors.
Yes, I remember well my college days: it was a time of great freedom and adventure. But it was tainted with fear, doubt, and frustration. How I managed to finish college I don't know. It's an experience I would never want to repeat. Now, older and wiser---and retired---I can lie on the grass at will and read, watch, or photograph, and not have to worry about term papers, book reports, classes, and grades.

I remember. And I'd like to go back and do it all over again. Of course, there's a few things I'd do differently...but that's another story. Good capture.

This is great! I bet she thinks she's hard at work, too. I remember those days-longingly.

This is good Steve. Really excellent exposure. Great composition.

I remember laying on the grass reading, but it was rarely anything I actually *wanted* to read :) She may look relaxed, but I bet she's stressing about the 10 page term paper she has to write about that book. LOL. Great shot nonetheless. Very representative of college life.
