On Saturday, I volunteered at WGBH’s Artisan Taste Event. A beautiful day, live music, delicious food & drink, & friendly staff made for a great day of picture-taking!
Yesterday after work I went over to The Lawn on D to check out their current exhibition “Pentalum.” What is “Pentalum,” you ask? The short version is that it’s a plastic sculpture/maze made with deliberately placed colored panels which create different effects as the sunlight passes through them. The result is unique and amazing. Each area you pass through is a different experience and as a photographer it was a fun challenge to walk through, adjusting the exposure to such a vast range of available light and colors. Visitors are encouraged to take their time, sit or lie down in little side pods, and take as many pictures as they want to take it all in.
For about the past two years, I’ve worked as an Office Coordinator for the Physics Department at a university. Strange as it was for me, an English major with instincts steering away from math and science at any and all costs, I’ve had such a great experience here, learned so much, and met some strange and wonderful people you’d only ever meet here. I applied to the job so I could be in Boston, but I never imagined how much more I would gain than just the city experience.
Luckily, I’m staying here at the university, just moving to the Public Affairs office, where I hope to put my keen editorial eye to use!
Since this is my last week here in Physics, it was ever-so appropriate that one of the professors asked me to take pictures of his lab setups for the student manuals. I took the liberty of taking a few creative shots, too, a couple of images to remember my foray into math & science by.
