I don’t know how it can be December. I fight against even the idea. Our life here evaporates into mist on December 30th. Sabbatical terms are like that; here, and then gone.
I had an appointment over at CSAIL yesterday (CSAIL is the AI lab at MIT that builds all of my favorite robots, and is housed in the Gehry building) and so I thought I’d do a bit of a shoot.
The Gehry is surreal just sitting there; it doesn’t need any filters or effects. Admittedly, however, the light was fantastic.
I attempted to infiltrate the roof of the Green Building (the I.M. Pei tower that houses MIT Planetary) but I was unsuccessful. However, nothing will stop me. I am bent on getting a shot of Rob van der Hilst up there, tall and magnificent against the crazed, mysterious Ball.
It’s been a strange and lovely year.
If I could describe my feelings only using colours and lines, I suppose they would look a lot like these two photographs.
