After finishing a workout at the Purdue University CoRec, I happened upon a beautiful sunrise walking home.

I have wanted to incorporate students in more of my on-campus images and this morning, I was able to do just that.

I opted to use a slow shutter speed to blur those walking by.

I ended up with more than a few favorites.

The way the light was shining only on the top portion of University Hall was beautiful.

The sloop departed on its route and as it left revealed a clean angle.

As much as I have wanted to show students in more images, clean angles such as the one above also look great. I especially like the warm reflections on Oval Dr.

I packed up and began walking home and had to make one last one in front of Wetherill Chemistry Laboratory.

But I think this has to be my favorite of them all:

I have recently decided to pursue photography full-time and have launched my Patreon page where I share behind-the-scenes photos, settings, and for certain patronage levels – you could get a free personalized 2018 calendar of your favorite 12 photos of mine from 2017. If you would like to support the continuation of my photography the single best way is to become one of my Patrons.

Thanks, and see you tomorrow for another photo story!

Follow me on social media for more of these throughout the month!
