July 2009 Theme Day – “Empty”

Posted by Jackie on July 1, 2009


Today is the first of the month, so that’s another theme day for the City Daily Photo Blogs. This month the theme is “Empty”, and so I am presenting a view from the university where I work – the undergraduate students have been gone a couple of weeks, apart from the finalists who are attending their graduation ceremonies, and the campus is lovely and empty, I always really like it this time of year. This place is the food hall of “The Hub”, the relatively newly-built building on campus (it opened in January I think). During term time, especially lunchtimes, it is absolutely heaving, but now as you can see it lies largely empty.

[Maybe that’s why the food and drink there is so expensive, to make up for the fact that for several months there’s hardly anyone here to buy it. But that’s a whinge for another day, I expect πŸ™‚ ]

    I taught school, too. I always kidded around that teaching wouldn’t be so bad if the students weren’t in school!

    Loved those empty days before a term begins…

    Great theme post!

    Took me a minute recognize where the shot was from, as I’m so accustomed to seeing the cafeteria filled with students. Enough so that I couldn’t even recognize the chairs, even though I’ve sat in them a few dozen times!
    To use a term another commenter used above, must’ve been serene without the roughly 400 students that usually fill the hall with chatter.

    Very nice and delicate. I like the materiality of those objects.
