Snowpeople & a hammershark by Jenny X. '13

more post-blizzard sights around campus --

A couple days after the blizzard, I walked around campus and took some quick shots of all the snowpeople-and-other-things in sight. They’re all pretty cute, but the hammershark is definitely my favorite. c:

P.S. I’m currently scrambling to finish the Sketchbook Project (introduced in this post),
and this is my Blizzard Burrito [a collage].

    @ Anonymous — We did have snow! smile The high desert received some nice downfall on January 2nd. The mountains are still covered.

    I am glad I got out of Boston before the east coast blizzard. I left on the 14th (went to visit and tour MIT) and it was really cold with flurries at Quincy Market. I thought for sure my flight would be canceled. Instead, it was an hour late taking off.

    The pyramid’s awesome : )

    I second Albert on the pyramid. The shark is pretty cool too! I have a friend who built an igloo in her backyard–very intense.

    Also, love your artwork! Very appealing.

    These all snaps look quite similar to the ones in 21-Blackjack! haha! Great Pics! (Especially that Hammershark, are there chocolates on it?)
    Seriously! These pics are actually exhilarating, making me more eager to come to MIT than ever before!!!

    I’ll have to agree with Albert. By far, the pyramid is the most fascinating snow-structure I have ever seen. I think it may even rival Stonehenge in that respect. Who knows which civilisation (read hall of residence) may have erected this magnificent monument. (To be honest, the edges are a bit *too* well designed…)

    It seems that MIT bloggers take this snowy season so serious.I try to recollect those days when I used to “eat” snow,old days.

    @Jenny’13-One fortunate girl who could live in what I call “Heaven”-MIT..’THE’ MIT!.Oh you are in course 4,why don’t you put your hand in sculpturing a masterpiece,or are you reserving your skills for ‘THE’ day.All the best! .
    That hammer-shark one is just super cool,one piece of art.Hats off to who ever who hand-crafted that.

    Wish I can be a part of this marvelous place-MIT one day… one day….It’s gonna be a long long wait.Fingers crossed.
