The Sixth Photo in the Sixth Folder

"The sixth photo in the sixth folder"... almost sounds like part of a murder/mystery book, doesn't it, one with secret societies and such.

I've been tagged by Pink Diamond Workshop for a meme I've never heard of -- so let's see where it ends up. If you want to try this one yourself, post in the Comments section and let us know!

The instructions:

1. Navigate to where you keep your pictures, select the 6th folder, and the 6th picture in that folder.

2. Post the picture on your blog with an explanation about the picture.

And here it is (or click here for the wider, full version):

This is a picture that I'd actually forgotten I'd taken. It's the University of Virginia Book Store as seen from the top floor, where they sell the text books. Since UVA has its fair share of secret societies, I think it's kind of cool that it was the sixth of the sixth.

I took this picture in October, 2008, when Rick and I were on our annual honeymoon visit to Prospect Hill. We always head into nearby Charlottesville to just wander -- I went to school at UVA, I bought my first house in Charlottesville, and Rick and I were married in the UVA Chapel.
For some reason, I would head to the Book Store when I was having a bad, sad day at school (which for a completely broke pre-med student who felt in over her head was often) and just walk around, looking at this and that. I just looked and thought and for a little while, was away from worrying about that night's 1,498 pages of molecular biology to be read or the organic chemistry lab that needed tending to.

So there's my Sixth Photo in the Sixth Folder. What's yours?



  1. That's a cool shot. My photo is in my blog.
