I love great college campuses. The artful arrangement of great architecture, sculpted open spaces and mature vegetation within a context of learning and tradition creates a very special sense of place. Patti and I traveled to the Louisiana State campus for the LSU v. Alabama game this weekend, where ESPN College GameDay had set up for live broadcast on the huge semi-circular parade ground at the heart of the campus. I moved to the rear of the field to get an overall vista of the action, and sketched from my small folding stool.. The venerable Law School building at far right acted as a nice counterpoint to all the temporary tents, canopies, and the ESPN tour bus (center). Amazing energy and revelry for early on a Saturday morning!
