Yale University :: A photographic journey

On Sunday I had the incredible opportunity to join 50 other photographers on a two hour walking tour through the old campus at Yale University. With a deep appreciation and fondness for history and architecture, I wandered through one of our country's oldest and most celebrated universities. Founded in 1701, Yale University has nourished some of our country's greatest minds and employed the craftsmanship of some of the world's greatest architects. To step inside the campus, is to venture deep into our country's history where every building and statue is evocative of an important moment in time. The Yale University campus is magnificence and beauty and wonder and I had the incredible opportunity to capture some of it's finer details. A big thank you to Jesse Thompson and Milford Photo for organizing this great event!
