Photo 101, Day 7: Nothing bigger than freedom of speech

We were told to “go big” today in Photo 101, and I can’t think of anything bigger than the First Amendment to our Constitution — and especially in light of what is happening to people in other parts of the world when they dare speak their minds or run afoul of those who have extreme views of “religion.”

Fortunately, there’s a fine representative, and an artful representation, of the First Amendment more or less in my back yard. The photos above and left show the exterior of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

For good measure, below is a photo of another prominent building on campus, Crouse College, built in 1889. It is home to a gorgeous auditorium with tremendous acoustics, and rests high atop a hill. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in the 1970s.
