Go Bears!


Fiat lux (let there be light) is the motto of the University of California at Berkeley.

There’s so much granite and marble in Cal’s buildings that black & white is sometimes the best way to process these images.

The Campanile, by the way, houses bones and other artifacts for the paleontology museum. Unfortunately, the old Campanile elevator cab that had a window has been replaced, so you can no longer catch a glimpse of the bones while riding in it. Nonetheless, the view from the top is worth it.
