When we are young our community consists of our family, our neighborhood, and our school. As adults we add to that the community in which we work.

Once a year the university where I work gives the staff (as opposed to the faculty and students) an afternoon off and treats us to lunch and entertainment. They call it Staff Appreciation Day. It is held in Memorial Glade in the center of campus - there is a four-story library buried under the grass here.

The inflated bear is our mascot, named Oski, and the cursive Cal was painted on the grass for the occasion.

It was a nice gesture, but personally I am not fond enough of hot dogs to stand in a long line for one, and the hip-hop music quickly drove me back to my office.


Photographed with an Olympus E-500 digital SLR with an 8mm Zuiko fisheye lens. The camera was held high overhead on a hiking stick with L-bracket. Stitched with PTGui 6 on a Macintosh dual-Dual-Core Intel Xeon tower, retouched with Photoshop CS3, converted to QTVR using Cubic Converter.
