so i finally got myself a new laptop. it was almost an unplanned purchase, but i got to thinking about getting a new machine when my old vaio just aborted this one process i was running (nef -> jpeg). that was probably the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.
of course, the old vaio held a lot of memories on its hard drive. the logical action to take would be to transfer them to the new laptop. given the wireless network at home, this was almost a cinch. and after installing the pertinent software, i browsed all the images located in their new home. and that's when i found these all over again.
not quite as nicely composed or impactful as i'd like them to be (oh, the shame! to think that i was taking a photography class at the time... ), they still remind me of those days back in pittsburgh. and just like many of us, our university days definitely stay with us. some would be bitter, some would be sweet, but all teaching us valuable lessons that stay with us through our time here in this world.
to those about to embark on their own path, selamat!
