Photography + Underground

Posted on Tuesday September 14, 2010 at 11:12pm in ,

This semester I am taking a photography class! As part of the class, we receive a Canon Rebel XTI DSLR camera. It’s a very fun camera to shoot with and I’m learning a lot so far. Today’s post will mainly be of various photos I’ve taken around Eau Claire this last week. First off, let’s take a look at the camera I received:

My first assignment for Photography was a scavenger hunt. We had to find 25 different things around the city… here are a couple of good ones I found.

Well, that’s the end of the photography for now. In the meantime, I’ve been reading another book… Underground by Haruki Murakami. Yes, I’ve been reading a lot of Murakami lately. I just finished this one yesterday.

Underground

This is Murakami’s only nonfiction book. It’s about the sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway lines in 1995. For the book, Murakmi interviewed over 60 different people involved in the attack in some way and got their side of the story. There were a lot of interesting perspectives and a lot of sad ones as well. It was all done interview style with a few pages of Murakami’s overall thoughts on things. I would recommend this if you want to know more about one of the biggest terrorist attacks in Japan and the peoples’ response to it.
