I’ll go ahead and finish posting the photos I took on my camera at Berkeley yesterday. Just a few scattered scenes. South Hall, the Campanile, roses at the base of the Campanile, etc. Continue reading
Yesterday was super great. In the morning, I got to meet up with my friend Natasha for coffee and photos. Then in the afternoon, Micah and I headed into the city for a handful of hours.
