The Rounded Corner
And so the Cambridge walks begin. A whole new palette of urban scenery to absorb. To those in the area, I highly recommend checking out events.mit.edu, a public calendar of open lectures, panels, seminars, etc… The above photo was taken on the walk home from a panel on Time Management, geared towards those in the life sciences, stocked by four PhD toting professionals in various fields. Nothing groundbreaking, but some great insights from some people who have used their time very wisely thus far. A minor takeaway, albeit bordering on cheesy, is simply that time management is about what’s important to you.
This photo works for me because (nearly) everything fits in perfectly. The top of the bus doesn’t leave the frame. The red sidewalk panel at bottom left hugs the frame without exiting. It makes it all seem very solid somehow.
The fisheye lens bulges everything out, which makes me feel like I’m standing atop a giant concrete marble. As you look down the crosswalk, space flattens out a bit, but then judging by my feet it looks like I’m standing on the side of the world.
Thankfully I’m not in grad school with two kids and papers aplenty to publish on yet-incomplete experiments. I have time.
