Today on the blog, we also hear from Kim Loeper, a senior photography major studying with 11 other photography students from RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences here in Dubrovnik, Croatia, this quarter:
Dobar Dan! (Good Day!)
Finally! Tonight is Big Shot. We’ve been waiting for this and we have just tonight and four exposures to get it right. Though the Big Shot is not the main reason why the other photography students and myself are here in Dubrovnik for the quarter, it’s still an exciting experience, followed by a reception, Croatian style, at a club built under the walls of the fort near Ploce Gate, at the opposite end of the Stradun from Pile Gate. Bill, Dawn, Michael, Willie and all the others have put in countless hours of planning to make this happen, but tonight my job is to be a team leader to light one segment of the exterior city walls.
I’ve been in Dubrovnik since the start of March, studying here for spring quarter. It’s my last semester before I graduate . . . out with a bang! I’ve always wanted to study abroad, and though I miss my friends back at RIT, I’m enjoying my time in Croatia. It’s unlike any other place I’ve been. Kelly had asked me to write a blog entry for The Tiger Beat Blog, but I also keep my own. For the sake of saving time (that today I unfortunately don’t have much to spare), I invite you all to read the entries on my personal blog and check out the images in a Web gallery:
