_MG_8756 Modern 16"X20"

Some more adventure for the photo stream. I have been following this guy for about 3 years now, and have only been impressed. His name is Trey Ratcliff www.flickr.com/photos/stuckincustoms/4331354675/ (See Photo Below) www.stuckincustoms.com/ and I will have to say that all the wonderful things I have heard and read about the man is true. He is super talented, gracious, and just all around good company. Very unassuming, and he even had tee shirts, hats, and home made fudge (from "Mom") for all who were interested in ruining their appetite before dinner...lol. A wonderful day that the Stock Market or the drizzly weather could not damper.

 

We all started out under an Oak tree @ the main oval off of palm drive on the Stanford University campus, and ended our 2hr "photo walk @ The Tresidder Memorial Union. After the walk, and as a result of leaving my free SmugMug Tee shirt back and the Tresidder Cafeteria I befriended a very nice fellow photographer by the name of Jono www.flickr.com/photos/jonoberg/ who was finishing up with a phone conversation @ the time of my Tee Shirt Retrieval. I mentioned to Jono my desire, regardless of the weather, to explore the campus more because I had never really done that. He suggested the James H. Clark Center for it's "Ultra Modern Beauty!" So after a 15min walk in the rain, we were handsomely rewarded with the photo you see above. This photo is a tribute to Trey Ratcliff for having the photo walk and to Jono for this excellent excursion!

This is a multi-shot combination. The sky was layered with a color changed version which I felt did not detract from the gorgeous buildings.
