Wednesday, May 12

It was a mostly cloudy day here in Tulsa, but no rain interfered with the day's shoot. My shooting buddies, Mary and Jeanne, came over this morning for coffee and coffeecake (home made, by the way), and then we headed out to Oral Roberts University to see what we could see.

Bronze Sculpture called Praying Hands, which now sits at the entrance to Oral Roberts University, was originally directly in front of the lobby of the City of Faith - 2:36 p.m.

This was my first visit to the ORU campus, but I'm sure it won't be my last. The buildings are architecturally interesting, and the gardens are beautiful, inviting places to sit and enjoy watching the world go by. See you next month.
