Autumn in Ann Arbor

This post feels like a bit of a cop out, as it consists entirely of Instagrams and my previous post did too. However, in the last week or so, two circumstances have collided, leaving me with a bunch of Instagrams I really, really want to share. One, I got a new iPhone with a way better camera than the one I had previously, so I have a renewed enthusiasm about taking pictures with my phone (hard to believe, I know, given how many photos I already take with my phone). Two, autumn has been in full swing around Ann Arbor, and campus is absolutely gorgeous at the moment.

Truly, I cannot emphasize the latter point enough. I always love seeing the leaves change color in the fall, but it seems a bit better this year. I could be wrong, but I feel like the leaves are sticking around longer this year, whereas normally they would be gone by the time November rolls around. And I might be biased, but I happen to think that U of M’s campus is pretty near unbeatable when it comes to gorgeous fall foliage. Every time I walk somewhere on campus, I find things I want to photograph, like the law library in all its ivy-covered splendor:

Or the little corridor between the art museum and Tappan Hall, which is particularly packed with gorgeous colors:

Or the sight of the Bell Tower peeking over the trees on the northwest corner of the Diag:

Or the Cube, tucked away amongst a canopy of leaves:

Or the law library, looking majestic against the bright blue sky on a particularly lovely November afternoon:

Or CC Little, covered in a patchwork of ivy that reminded me of a tie-dyed t-shirt:

I could go on and on (and on), but you get the idea: I love this city in the autumn.

  1. Are all these fall pictures taken with your iPhone? I went to school at Umich, now Im in california. Ive been searching the internet for a cool picture of campus in fall to put in my room and really liked your picture of the corridor by the museum. I was wondering whether there was a way to request the picture, and how large the picture file is (whether it would work to make it larger like 16×20 or something. My wife gets very nostalgic about out time in Ann Arbor, so i’ve been looking for something. Your pics are great. Cool blog. Ryan
