It’s that time of the year, again, when students graduate all over the city.
Lots of happy and excited faces on campus of Columbia University.
I took these photos AFTER the graduation ceremony.
Hours earlier, the place was packed with people.
Graduates and family on their way to celebrate.
Many students stopped to take a photo in front of Alma Mater, one of the most famous sculptures on campus.
I like the colors in her dress. Very festive. Love her hair, too.
Once-occupied seats by proud family and friends.
This is one of the two statues — Art and Science by Charles Keck. It’s located at the entrance of the Columbia University campus. I recently noticed that all the green on the wall and statue.
She’s looking pretty green around the gills. Actually, she’s looking green all over. As if she’s getting sick.
It’s even spreading to the walls. Help!
Earlier, I’d posted some photos of College Walk, lit up at night, on the Columbia University campus.
The lights will stay up until the end of February but during the day, they’re turned off.
The place looks different, huh? Like night and day.
Happy New Year, everyone!
I’ve taken and posted photos, before, of the illuminated trees along College Walk on the Columbia University Campus.
However, I never get tired of taking photos and posting them.
So here are new photos, again.
Lights are kept on the trees from December to February 28.
There’s even a tree-lightening ceremony when the trees are first lit.
From the looks of this, the person who put up the lights on this tree did a very through job.
It was a beautiful, warm and sunny day, yesterday, Friday. Actually, it felt more like summer than autumn. Everyone was outside, enjoying the weather. Many folks (including me) were still wearing summer attire. On the Columbia University campus, these girls sat relaxed, enjoying their chat.
This flowing fountain looked very picturesque.
Even the birds took advantage of the warm weather and the fountain.
I enjoyed watching this pigeon dive into the fountain and the sparrow take sips of water.
Of course, as I approached them to get a closer shot, they flew away.
It was good to see everyone enjoy the day.
