…circa February 2001 (pre-Justinsomnia), after UNC beat Duke. Sadly Duke won the NCAA championship that year, but UNC came back in 2005. I was inspired to post these shots from the ground after seeing this time-lapse video from above: Franklin Street after the victory.
You know the one thing that strikes me looking at these shots 8 years later (other than the fact that I can’t believe it has been 8 years)? Is how few people had cameras. Like almost nobody had a camera. Come to think of it, at the time my digital camera was only two months old. In the pictures I took, I think I saw maybe one throwaway film cam and few pro rigs from the Daily Tar Heel. Everyone else was just in the moment.
