True Every Tuesday at 11 a.m. (or sometimes Wednesday at 10:30, if it rained on Tuesday), I went to the roof of the West Tower of the Wells Library to take a photo at the same spot on the wall. I was hoping to make a time lapse of photos as the Indiana University Arboretum transitioned from winter to spring to near-summer, but as previously mentioned, I lost a lot of those photos. Fortunately, I didn't lose the wintry ones, so I combined the first photo with the last one, taken May 4, and made a JavaScript slider out of it. Enjoy the interactivity.

As I make this entry, I'm on a Delta Airlines flight to Hawaii. I'll be reporting with J360 International Reporting as replacement for our cancelled trip to Japan. Before I start putting photos from Honolulu on the blog, I thought I would post something about what I've done between Victor Oladipo's performance and graduation this Saturday. Here's a mini-tour.

For my Ernie Pyle Scholar capstone project (similarly hampered by the loss of my computer hard drive), I put a microphone on Sigma Chi coach Tom Schwoegler (right) during the men's Little 500 and interviewed two of his riders to make an audio slideshow. The page it appears on also includes the original 17-minute podcast I made from it, a drop-down menu of Schwoegler's Little 500 history and links to more of my Little 500 photos.

A huge storm blew through Bloomington on Apr. 23, so I looked in my backyard and tried to get photos of lightning. I shot counterintuitively (a slower shutter speed will get MORE, not less, bolts), but I still managed to capture something.

What I consider my last real assignment was the softball game against Iowa on Apr. 30. I hadn't shot softball all year, and as I toiled on the baseball beat, I grew jealous of those who were around to capture the excitement of a team on a double-digit winning streak.

I was also excited for the chance to stand inside the fence, something you can't do in baseball. I took advantage of it by using my wide lens on my crop-body to get a view as authoritative as, if not more than, that of the umpire.

Baseball players don't scream and jump at every solo home run, but the softball team did after Amanda Wagner's knock-out to start off their scoring run.

After every Hoosier strikeout, IU Athletics interns threw free T-shirts into the stands. An Iowa mom tried to snag one, but it hopped out of her hand, back into it, and back out of it toward some fans behind her.

Remember when I said I "toiled" on the baseball beat because there wasn't much excitement? On my last official assignment (softball was my PLANNED last assignment) on May 8, baseball pitcher Casey Smith proved me wrong.

Happy graduation weekend, indeed.

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
