No school holds greater affection in my memory than my alma mater, the University of Alabama. I followed in my father’s footsteps as an undergraduate, and later went to graduate school there, too. Whenever I travel to or through Tuscaloosa, I’m going home. This is a shot of Denny Chimes, on the quad where I walked, read, studied, met friends, or daydreamed, always aware of the time because the bells toll every quarter hour. A medley of music used to play in the late afternoon; I’m not sure if that still happens. Behind where I’m shooting is another of the places I enjoyed many hours, the Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library. The residence you can see in this photo beyond Denny Chimes is the President’s Mansion.
