I spent some time this day reflecting on the events of 9/11 and how it fundamentally changed our country. I also remembered the son of a friend, who died the day before of a drug overdose. The two always go hand in hand for me. I lost my faith on 9/11, and don't think I ever found it again. Wandering in the wilderness.

We had our first faculty meeting of the semester today. It was lively and productive. We have a new faculty member who has a good sense of what is going on, and it was great to hear her voice in the discussion.

The new socks I wore today:

I showed them to my colleagues, and they were quite surprised that I would wear socks like this. I guess I am perceived as a button-down type. I'm not--that's just my disguise.

One of my friends who is an awesome photographer, and is taking a class on campus this semester, posted a photo on Facebook the other day of the water tower next to my office. It was so interesting, and so unlike anything I would ever think to photograph. I love that. I love how other photographers can see the same space so differently than I do.

It stimulated me to take another look at the immediate environment around my office/cubicle trailer, and see what I could see. Across from our trailers is the old aeronautical building. It's just classrooms now, but used to be a place where they would test old airplane engines, and it had two towers, that acted as some sort of exhaust system. Now they are just towers. So that's what I photographed today, along with the half moon. I used a Snapseed filter to make it dramatic.
