Top Left: This photo was taken on the middle floor at the Freshman center. One day as I was waiting for my ride I looked out the window and noticed a few holes on the window fences. I wonder I wonder how they got there. Top Right: Ricky Rodriguesâ€™16, my partner for this project, in between the brick columns in the commons area. Left: This hole was by the stairway in the outdoor plaza. I think its for the water to flow out of the floor. Not sure. 4 FEBRUARY 2014

Top Left: Over at the 9th grade center, Ricky suffers from the cold winter wind. It actually wasn’t that bad considering the usual Iowa weather. Shame on him.

Ricky has an “advanced turtle neck.” Left: Ricky looks to the distance as he decides whether to go to the rest room or not on the bench by the 9th grade center.

Right: A picture of Ricky from a higher view than usual. I had to vertically climb between two brick columns. It was quite physically challenging. I need to run more. Top. A wormâ€™s eye view of Ricky gazing out of the stair windows.
