Campus Shadows

Author: Emilie Kretschmar

Yesterday was a beautiful day on campus. A bit chilly, yes, but the sun was out in full-force and the wind didn’t seem quite so brutal. As you well know, Penn’s campus photographs beautifully. The buildings are historic and grand, and works of art appear around every corner. Our green spaces are neatly manicured, and you can’t beat the view of Center City, Philadelphia. So when I went out to take some pictures of campus, I wasn’t sure what I could add to this oeuvre of already well documented campus views.  But, thanks to the brilliance of yesterday’s sun and the saturated colors of stone, brick, and grass, I found some unexpected beauty in campus shadows. Enjoy the tour of Penn’s shadows!
