Owen Egan

Sounds like a plot summary from Day of the Triffids, but these are benevolent invaders, part of the coursework for the Civil Engineering course in surveying. Here, Étienne Devost and Patrick Lussier check out the angles on the mountain while Rita Menneh and Julia Makino do the same in the background.
