Drone Week, Part 2

So you have noticed that this post is labeled "Drone Week, Part 2."  We are getting closer to answering the question you are no doubt asking in your head.  I am at Syracuse University, and when I arrived late this afternoon, I went for a walk in the rain to look for a blog post.  I saw this building from about half a mile away - it sits on the top of a hill at the south end of University Avenue.  The building is called "Hall of Languages" and was the first building  built for the university, constructed in 1871. It is stunning to see in person.  In the foreground is a sad piece of history - it is the memorial for the 35 Syracuse University students who died in the bombing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988.  They had spent a semester studying in London.

This is a photograph to celebrate the beauty of rain, and of the cloudy skies that are so much a part of the upstate New York weather.  This is looking in the opposite direction of the photograph above.
