Snapshot Saturday...June 14

Our youngest daughter is graduating from college this week-end. We wanted a few photos of her in her cap and gown so we decked her up and walked around campus looking for artsy and and colorful shots.  The light was waning but I think we got some good ones.  Here is a sample of the 60+ photos we took:

This one is my favorite. It is colorful and captures Carly's personality so well.

The St. Ignatius Chapel has a reflecting pond. We tried several artsy shots around it. Can you see tiny Carly in the crook of the bell tower?

This picture seems symbolic somehow of  college and the changes ahead.

The school crest is painted on pavement at the entrance of the university. I am amazed that this shot worked. By the time we took it it was getting quite dark.

Seattle University is a Jesuit school. This back-lit stained glass is in the Student Services building, 

Carly is standing in front of a favorite picture that is made of puzzle pieces. It is hanging in the library. 

This cross is also hanging in the library.
This colorful shot is Don's favorite. I was the location scout,  Don was artistic director and photographer.

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.
