B&W Wednesday: Stanford

Every time we go to Stanford, we take a photo of the girls standing inside this Henry Moore statue. Some day, they'll be all grown up and they'll pose here one last time before starting the tradition of having their kids pose here. Imagine how fun it'll be to look back on all of these photos later.

These photos aren't especially good quality because we were not really working with willing participants.  I guess standing inside this sculpture isn't really much fun for little girls!   And, of course, there was always the challenge of trying to get both of them to look at the camera at the same time.  Not surprisingly, we tried several other times over the years and ended up deleting all of the photos so we're feeling lucky that we got these three (so far!).

I think we had better luck with photo quality with the following pics.  The first three were taken inside the Cantor Arts Center on the Stanford campus.  There's a large collection of Rodin sculptures including the famous "Gates Of Hell" and "The Thinker".   The girls enjoy looking at art and on this day Gwen WAS the art. 

The fourth photo (below) is a close up of a portion of the Gates of Hell.  It's a creepy huge thing but really fascinating to look at.  The detail is spectacular.

The last photo is Maddy riding her bike on the campus.  I think the girls rode about 5 miles this day!   I added a little bit of the original color to the center arch of that photo.    We took about 50 more photos but these were my favorites of the day.  You can see our whole set on flickr <here>.
