Having previously shared the view of the whole buildings at Syracuse University, I thought I would show you some details from each today.
Colorful Boston Ivy on the Hall of Languages. The ivy was about the only colorful living thing around the campus with lots of small blue berries still on the vines. On the sun ward side of the building, all the leaves and most of the berries had already dropped leaving a web like presence clinging to the limestone exterior.
The Newhouse Communications Center III features the “Liberty Wrap” with the words of the First Amendment from the United States Constitution etched in six-foot high letters on the glass surrounding the building.
Bowne Hall has some interesting window treatments. I could not find out why they used what looks like copper for the window frames back in 1906. This is the most protected part of the building which gets little sunlight because of a big hill right behind me. The metal is the cleanest here. The metal on the other sides are more tarnished.
Remember, when photographing large objects, do not forget to get in close for the neat little details which make each unique.
