This is my album of photos for the "26 Things: Photographic Scavenger Hunt" presented by SH1FT.ORG (www.sh1ft.org/26things/). All photos were taken in and around my home in Adrian MI, and my work at Adrian College.

High Point

High Point

A picture inside the construction of our new/old student center. They are tearing off the roof (high point at this time.


Old

Old

Taken this July, on my summer vacation. This is part of the ruins near the Quincy Mine, in Hancock, MI. I love the old stonework.


Shadows

Shadows

I love the early mornings when I am the only person on the floor in my building. This image is from the two parallel light sources inside my outer office projecting through the outer door.


Warning

Warning

I've kept this box around for over a year. I teach chemistry and often order supplies that have a hazardous nature, but only once have I ever found this warning label attached to the outside of a box.


Oversized

Oversized

It wasn't very hard to decide what to shoot for the word "oversized". The ponderosa pinecone and ostrich egg are definitely out of scale of what we normally think the size of an egg and a pinecone should be.


Red

Red

A red fresnel lens sitting in one of my office windows.


Electric

Electric

The tangled mess of "electric" cables and cords behind my office workstation.


Close Up

Close Up

Watson, my 11 year old male Labrador Retriever. Up close and personal.


Movement

Movement

This picture turned out kind of wild. I had meant it to be for another purpose, but the out of focus, blurred motion and the weird orange background lent itself to the idea of movement. This is a pic of my 12 year old female Labrador, Judy.


Intimidating

Intimidating

Yeah, right...intimidating. Maybe not so much in this pic (actually, this is kind of anti-intimidating), but you should hear him bark. It amuses me to no end how cute he is when he's carrying around his favorite toy. So ferocious.


Team

Team

The Adrian College Bulldogs Football TEAM. Last game of the season.


Community

Community

The community of fans at Saturday's home football game. A cold, wet, windy, day. And we lost.


Three

Three

Three monitors on two computers in my office.


Contemplation

Contemplation

A shelf of current/recent reads. Plenty of interesting topics for contemplation.


Too Much

Too Much

This picture is the end result of a chemical reaction producing artificial snow. There was either not enough room in the beaker, or too much snow.


Reflection

Reflection

A kind of self portrait of my reflection in a round bottom flask that I coated on the inside with a silver film.


Soft

Soft

Gromit is contemplating whether or not he is comfortable in the soft rabbit fur. He's a little fuzzy on the issue, as (infortunately) is the macro mode on my digital camera.


Cold

Cold

Wallace is not happy about being waist deep in the cold snow. The penguin, being his usual phlegmatic, inscrutable self, does not seem to mind.


Sharp

Sharp

A shiny, sharp, mosaic of razor blades.


2:00 PM

2:00 PM

The day before Thanksgiving Break begins on our campus, and there is only one student to be observed crossing the campus. It's looking pretty deserted.


Familiar

Familiar

It doesn't get much more familiar that your own two feets.


Famous

Famous

One of the most famous logos out there. This one appears on the back of my PowerBook.


Layered

Layered

A screen capture of my layered laptop desktop.


Energy

Energy

I love cooking on my Mom's range top. The ceramic top just glows with energy.


Culture

Culture

When I think of the term culture, art usually comes to mind. I'm not sure if this handblown vase is art, but I really wanted to show off some of my work.


The End

The End

I'll get a better scan of this postcard from Michigan Tech, but it is very fitting, especially with the mist in the back.
