Thanks for posting these, Jim. From the accounts I've heard, you did well to get these without 20 media people in every frame.

I'm class of '73, but the events of this week have made me feel like I left Tech just a few weeks ago. It's been so surreal to see the sad images of a place I remember so fondly.

I photographed the memorial in Truro, Nova Scotia, for French professor Jocelyne Couture-Nowak on Friday. She lived there for 14 years and her sister lives in Halifax (about an hours drive). What an outstanding beautiful person the world lost.

Thanks for sharing those photos Jim.

Thank you for posting your photos!

VT has such a beautiful campus and is sad to know as the students walk past those buildings that they will have to remember this tragic event!

Jim,

I'm a Hokie and an engineer. Thanks for bringing back some memories of happier times past at VT for me. I hope those days will return very soon. On Monday, the journey back to normalcy begins.
