NDSU Campus in Monochrome

"National Champions"

Here is another set of images from the campus of good old North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND.  I really have been enjoying black and white lately, and I think it fits with the mood that this place puts me in, especially in the winter.  As I listen to the wind wipping outside, blowing the snow around the emptiness of North Dakota, monochrome just seems to fit.  I feel cold and lonely here, and I can’t wait for the weather to change, and the days to get longer.  North Dakota–especially in the winter–feels very black and white to me.

There is also another big change today: I have introduced watermarking to protect my images.  I have had problems with people using my intellectual property without permission, which is a sad state of affairs, and so the next step is to watermark them.  If that does not work, I will take other steps.  Please, if you enjoy my images, drop me a note and I will be happy to send you a print.  But stealing just isn’t very nice.

If you like what you see here, please feel free to re-blog, share via some social networking platform, or link to this page so that others can enjoy the work here as well.  As always, comments and critiques are appreciated.





  1. Totally agree on the watermark … I use it i every picture I upload, anywhere online. It’s not only my rights but also the rights of the people in the picture that need to be safeguarded. Like the mood you’ve captured with the B&W


  2. For “P. Off” I would make it more about the people; cropping it tight around the service window & counter and not seeing the Post Office sign above. You can still figure out it’s a post office w/ the logo on the back wall.
