I chose that title because most of the images are square-on views of the sides of buildings on the university campus (what, on an architect's drawing, is called an "elevation"). It turns out the word "elevation" has a number of special uses, all of which I'm happy to appropriate.
The height of something above a given or implied place, e.g. sea level
A raised area
Nobleness or grandeur; loftiness of thought
A scale drawing of the external face of a building or structure
The external face of a building or structure
A dancer's ability to jump high
(Roman Catholic Church) The lifting up of the Host at Mass
The angle between the horizontal and the line from the object to the observer's eye (the line of sight)
(Linguistics) A change from a pejorative meaning to a positive meaning
(Psychology) A pleasant moral emotion, the opposite of disgust.
