Signs of Spring

I think I am enamored by spring in the Midwest. While every one moans and groans about how much our school spends on landscaping each year, there’s no denying that they do a spankin’ job of beautifying campus. Since the flowers have bloomed and the tulips have been planted, I thought it would be a great time to break out my gigantic macro lens! I got it a while ago, but really haven’t used it as much as I thought I would. Here are some results of my attempts:

Our Roadside Pit Stops Along Highway 1

One of the advantages of driving from north to south along Highway 1 was that there were numerous pit stops for visitors to pull over and take a break (not so much if you’re coming from the other direction). If it were up to me, I would have pulled over on every single one to take photos because all the views were amazing! But for the sake of my friends’ sanities, I limited my requests. There were still plenty of photo ops, which I realized when putting together this compilation. Be prepared for many photos from various pit stops along our Highway 1 road trip!
