The Snow Polishers Of Purdue

More With The Snow Polishers

Yesterday I talked about the critical role that these snow polishers play in making sure that no sidewalk on campus is safe. They have been committed to this role for years now. If there is a sidewalk that is passable they will come by and make it so icy that you have to walk off to the side. This is a tradition that has withstood the passage of time. While out on my walk Wednesday night I made a couple of photos of these polishers in action.

Keeping An Eye Open

One thing that photography has taught me is to always be looking for a subject. While stopped at a stoplight I saw this scene out of my window and of course grabbed the camera to make a photo. I was proud of seeing the potential here. This year one of my goals was to show more scenes like this one and not just the photos that I think will sell. Part of the fun of things will be to document what I see on campus. This photo fell flat on Instagram, but that doesn’t mean that I like it any less. It is part of a bigger story.


Much like the photo above I like this photo because it is different from what I would have made in the past. At one point a couple of years ago I remember thinking that I had made every photo of campus that I could. Of course there was so much that I was missing. Little details are all over the place just waiting for me. This was one of my favorite photos from the night.

More Photos From My Walk

The snow quit on me while I was on campus, but I was able to make some photos that I liked Wednesday night in the short time that I was up there. Here are a few bonus photos from my walk. I have been posting backwards for the past couple of days. Tomorrows post will be some of my photos from around athletics that started this look at Landon.
