Photographer Steve McCaw rarely goes anywhere without his camera and gear, and the sight of spring's arrival on campus was too glorious for him to ignore. On his way to a recent photo shoot, McCaw paused to smell the flowers and take some pictures of the natural beauty that makes the campus such a unique place to work.
