On Tuesday August 19, 2008 I was hired by Duke University and Bon Appétit Management Company to photograph the cookout that welcomes the freshmen that will make up the class of 2012.  There were a host of vendors serving up everything from smoked cow to freshly squeezed lemonade.

Swarms of people attended this event and  filled their bellies with a variety of food items.  From the top of my head I saw hearty soup, smoked corn, hot dogs, hamburgers, chopped bbq, baked beans, potato salad, green beans along with a host of other foods.

As people enjoyed good food and company they sat down to listen to the tunes of the “Shady Grove Band”.

There is more to be said but instead of me telling you about I’ll do this the easy way and let you experience the atmosphere for yourself.  The most relaxed way to do that is to take a few moments and watch the slideshow below.
