song of the day: 'stairway to heaven' by led zeppelin
yesterday afternoon, i grabbed my camera and tripod, packed it in the car, and drove over to my alma mater and the 100 stairs to take my pictures. literally, there are 100 steps leading up to the campus. when i was going to school there, my dorm was at the very top, but they've since torn it down and built another in its place. but i've run up these stairs a number of times in training. by about the fifth time, you feel as though gravity has actually gotten heavier and is pushing against you. by the time you reach the top, there's no spring to your step. but going down is worse. you feel pulled down but the steps are pretty narrow so you have to really watch your feet so you don't fall. plus, your legs are shaking from the effort of running up them. great workout though. and i remember sitting at the top of those stairs with matt when we were dating. one night, we talked for a couple hours up there, you know, about nothing and everything at the same time.
so this place has a lot of meaning for me. i think i'm going to try and make a real effort to show you some of my favorite places around town. there are some cool spots in siloam that i love and want to share with you guys. i just have to get up the courage to get out there!
oh and i did the house tour yesterday but it was so shaky that i'll have to do it again. i'm not much of a cinematographer.
