New Photos at DeviantArt!

I’ve added a few photos from my trip to Raleigh, NC last December.  I took the backroads to get there.  I wasn’t interested in making good time.  I was more interested in seeing what had changed in the last decade.

You see, back in 1995 I was a up and coming freshman at NCSU.  I had just graduated High school in the top third of my class, I was and still am a slacker, but I had been accepted into State with open arms.  By the end of the first month, I had decided it was time to have my car on campus…ahh the beginning of the end.

I used to take NC Hwy 49 North to Asheboro, meet up with US 64 East all the way into Raleigh.  It was a (relatively) quick 2 hour and 2 minute drive from doorstep to doorstep.  The speed limit was for old people I used to tell people.

I had dreamed of the day they would finish work on 64, making it 4 lanes all the way from Asheboro to Raleigh.  Well, I had decided to visit the school, and see how “My University” had changed.  First off, the 4-lane road was completed.  You can even by-pass Pittsboro now.  But I took Business 64 in any way.  I wanted to see how the town had changed.

Other than the highway, it felt as though little had changed.

And then I rolled up to Centennial Campus. When I was a freshman, there were only two buildings on campus there.  But now there were at least 20 buildings, a lake, condos, Redhat had even moved onto campus with two seperate buildings!

It was hard to believe this was the same school I had struck out on my own to find my life, only to find out it was much, much harder than I could have imagined.  I have to say the school is definitely aging well.  I can hardly wait to see it continue.  Hopefully I’ll find my way back up there before another 10 years has passed.

You can see some of the photos I took while on my trip.  Very little is of the campus itself.  I have a slightly different eye than that.  I do invite you to check out my gallery at Deviant Art.

And please comment, let me know what you think of the photos.  I look forward to taking more this weekend.  I’m heading up to the mountains to unwind for a bit.
