Thank you to Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday for the Prompt: COLUMNS.
Self has been on a kind of nostalgia trip since beginning the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. Today, she went back to her old stomping grounds on the Stanford campus and took pictures of anything that could pass for a column. She went to Hoover Tower and saw an exhibit on the Cold War. She photographed the covered walkway in the School of Education. She photographed a skateboard rack. She photographed the Clock Tower, a favorite meeting place for self and her friends.
Self has the perfect picture for today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt — LILAC — evening sky over Belfast, late April.
Self was on her first-ever visit to Belfast. She’d originally planned to go in 2017, but ended up going to the Philippines instead. Then, the pandemic intervened. So it wasn’t until April 2022 that she finally boarded a flight from San Francisco to this (to her) almost-mythic city (She was a big, big Game of Thrones fan!)
A friend advised her to stay at the Europa. She took this picture from her hotel room. It was about 9 p.m.
