These are from Walter Library during finals week. I was sitting around waiting for someone who never showed up. This building was awful when I was an undergraduate at the U. They've fixed it up since then, and it is wonderful now - back to its original splendor:

Perspective is everything.

Love these, especially the romancing insects. And what an angle from which to catch that pillar!
