Here is another shot of the same bench made in 2005, not long after I moved here: http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=5989741 --Lannie

The bench seems as quaint as an old Singer sewing machine, sitting austerely among the confetti of celebratory leaves.

Lannie I checked out the old picture. The bench looked so much more aggressive and ambitious back then. It looks a lot more reflective nowadays.

Autumn of Our Years Jack, we've all grown older, and the old bench is not the only thing that has been left out to rust in the rain. The old bench almost looks like it is simply waiting to die, does it not? --Lannie

Election Eve, 2008, Livingstone College III: Waiting for the Next President This was shot at Livingstone College after sunset on the eve of the 2008 election. Since Livingstone is a historically black college founded not long after the Civil War, this election was particularly meaningful, and there was a sense of quiet optimism on campus on this Monday evening before the nation would elect its first African-American president.
