Rae: On our trip to Durham I had lots of different experiences. It was a terribly muggy and hot day and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in the hundreds. The car, even with the air conditioning on still seemed to be trapping all the heat and keeping inside, saving it for a cold day (which felt like would not be here ANY time soon). We first went to an exhibit at the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Church. The exhibit was about quiet spaces. To tell you the truth, I was not all that impressed with it. I really just didn’t capture quiet to me, however, there were still a few cool pictures. After that, we went to lunch at this wonderful bakery on the outskirts of downtown called Guglhupf. It was peaceful despite all the hustle and bustle of the crowd and it was delicious!! Afterward, we went to get desert. We then went to the next exhibit at Duke Documentary Studies about this little town in Georgia. It was really nice. My favorite image was this picture of this angel statue. The face was so detailed, it almost seemed real. The picture was square and was a close up of just the face. I loved the simplicity of it but still had so much depth. We also looked at this exhibit about night time photography that had this really cool picture of this house while it was raining. The drops were these little dashes and almost looked like stars. We went to Duke gardens after that. We found a little shady spot to park the car like that would help! It was just SO HOT. I really wished that we had brought water the second I stepped out of the car. It was hot, but it turned out it was worth it. I got some AMAZING pictures of the wildlife there which I will share with you now!
