Believe it or not, I hold back quite a lot when writing these posts. Really, you should see what I don’t put up. Often the reason I hold back is that I’m afraid I’ll look crazy (I know, I know–let’s just say I don’t want to look any crazier than I have to). Today is my birthday, though, so as a treat to myself I’m going to write about whatever I like. It’s well established both that I love Norman Hackerman and that there are a lot of pictures of him floating around. I recently ran across a big batch of negatives in one of his files and when I started to scan them out popped these two images:
My first reaction was frankly not very bright. I immediately remembered this image from the summer of 2013 when they replaced the roof on Sewall, which I took looking towards the very same spot where Norman was walking:
Oh, I thought, that top picture must have been the last time they replaced that roof! They were, of course, building it in the first place.
Bonus: I like these pigeons also.
