To garner awareness for a week of actions against cuts to higher education, the group “Take over UCSC” planned a dance party that took place last Friday, Feb. 26.
The windows of the Covel Commons building pounded in sync with the impassioned chanting of the crowd. Inside, 26 individuals pondered a decision that will deeply impact the lives of over two hundred thousand students in the UC system. The indirect results of the decision may ultimately affect millions of Californians.
Whether it is dancing for the Tango Club or at the Occupation Dance, students use different types of dancing to express their feelings or have fun. Another form of expression, acting can also provide students with a hobby that allows them to become another character or just let loose. The production of “The Death and Splendor of Joaquin Murieta has allowed students to participate in a unique form of theatre, a different type of experimental and interactive acting. Going to the “Rocky Horror Film Show” also allows people to express themselves, from participating in the production or dressing up. Music is another form of expression seen with “The Reality” and performers at College Eight’s open-mic who use their lyrics or lines to connect with the audience. From painting pumpkins to writing on the concrete, expression can be anything you want it to be.
From the minute I hailed down this particularly bright yellow cab in San Francisco, I knew the weekend ahead would leave me satiated. Supplied with it’s renowned undulating streets, incessant visual delights and the opportunity to walk into any number of bookstores and witness a poetry reciting would definitely leave a novice to this city satisfied. San Francisco is one big visual orgasm for the fervent photographer, and encountering it for the first time was climactic.
Colored leaves and cold air usually signal the beginning of the fall season. Around my adopted city Santa Cruz, the colors of fall are beautifully displayed in nature. From wild berries to the sturdy trunk of a tree, fall is all around, ready to signal the start of the holiday season. The most minute details become illuminated against the autumn sunset, making my favorite season a perfect opportunity for picture taking. Take the time to take in the beautiful colors around you and take in the cool, crisp autumn breeze.
These photos are a rough chronological journey to illustrate my travels throughout NSW, Australia. It begins with entering into Sydney on a ferry and meeting with our host Javier. It then follows our departure, leaving our host’s flat in beach town of Manly, to entering the great city of Sydney and touring the University. The photos then show the transition away from metropolitan Australia, and into the outback, full of both magnificent views and vibrant wildlife. The areas covered include Katoomba, on the Three Sisters Trail, as well as the area surrounding the youth hostel on Scotland Island and my subsequent departure from the area.
