Golden Glow

The falling leaves drift by my window...
The falling leaves of red and gold...

{Autumn Leaves -- Eva Cassidy}

This fall has been spectacular. Amazing and long last colors. 
It's such a great when autumn puts on a show before we face 5 months of bare trees. 
But for now the color is glorious, the leaves crunchy, and the ground blanketed.

Strata Center

I have wanted to explore the MIT campus for a while now. I heard and saw pictures of all the amazingly designed buildings. A few weeks ago, 52 Frames' theme was 'architecture' and I knew I had to get over to the Stata Center to take pics.
The Stata Center was designed by Frank Gehry in 2004. It's a pretty wacky building, almost like one of those "this is because of common core math" memes. It has received mixed praise and criticism since it was built and apparently has had some structural issues.

No matter what, it's one neat building to me!
