MIT, how thou buildings art so lovely. And that dust-like speck sort of at left near the top. That’s a seagull. Just clearing that up.

And now, a quote I came across whilst paging through David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest last night. Somewhat applicable, though this building isn’t necessarily ordinary. It’s the framing/composition that really introduces the beauty I suppose, and that’s what I see.

“He has that rare spinal appreciation for beauty in the ordinary that nature seems to bestow on those who have no native words for what they see.”

Kind of makes me want to buy the domain name Maybe for my forthcoming portfolio site.
