On March 21, 2009 (the first day of spring) it was 39 degrees and windy in Waterville, Maine. Spring comes late in central Maine. This Saturday, the conditions were finally appropriate to recreate the flying shoe over the Colby Quad and take a new background picture. For the last two seasons, I have picked a shoe that contrasts with the landscape and colors. On Saturday, I contrasted the budding trees, green grass, and high spirits of Colby students with my white Common Projects.
Here is a look back through the last three seasons,
My LL Bean Bucks overlooking a the Colby Quad on chilly fall afternoon in mid October.
My Paul Smith Canvas Sneakers overlooking two feet of packed snow on the Colby Quad in mid January.
My Common Projects overlooking the Colby Quad in late April.
By recreating the scene as closely as possible, I hope to showcase the vibrant changes in the Maine seasons.
