Twilight Glow at Stanford - Site of Steve Jobs' Memorial Service

    Newer Older

    I've bumped this older 2009 image up to the top of my queue since it has been featured in an online article at CNN Money relating to the memorial service that was held at Stanford yesterday for Steve Jobs. I'm honored that out of the thousands of Creative Commons images of Mem Chu available on flickr, they chose mine !

    (Since it is a Creative Commons image, they did not ask my permission in advance, but have provided accurate attribution.)

    A visit to Stanford University on a warm summer evening when few people were around allowed for time to set up the tripod and carefully compose shots. A few other "point & shoot" photographers raced by, but I patiently waited them out. I think the golden glow of the beautiful facade of Memorial Church made the wait worthwhile !

    Twilight is called the blue hour - I will post more images over the coming week with the lovely blue tones of evening.

    I am a Continuing Studies student at Stanford, and love to photograph the beautiful campus; Check out my Stanford Set (click on the link to the right) to see more of my images.

    If you can linger a moment longer, press L to look at the large or original size to see the wonderful detail of the mural and the carvings on the sandstone arches.

      Congratulation Jill....this is a great shot. And you got it with perfect light. Steve Jobs was a hell of a guy. He had wisdom and foresight. He seemed to know what people wanted before they knew it even existed.

      Great image, Jill and congrats on being "published". Did they ask
      permission or just grab the shot? It is such a lovely time of day and
      the light is fantastic.
