Gothic arches

Princeton University is known for many things... famous alumni (Woodrow Wilson was student and college president before becoming the 28th President of the United States)... a historic building that was used by the Continental Congress, the precursor to the US Congress... a member of the prestigious Ivy League... and of course an world renown institution of higher learning.

All of this is very impressive, but so are the many arches that can be found on the campus. To me they are almost magical. Each a passageway to another curious and wondrous space.

Yes, I went to Princeton...

...for the weekend. Walked around the campus for a few hours. Very impressive. Visited my sister and her family, including her daughter, my niece, who will be graduating in a few weeks. From Princeton. Unlike me. I just walked around.

I will be posting more images over the next few days.

Waiting for tree leaves

Yes, spring is finally here. Now the trees better get to work and make some green leaves.

Sudden green

Spring is amazing... in just a few days of warmth and sun, the pail anemic lawns suddenly turn verdant green. Somehow it almost makes the drab cold season worth the endurance.

Brick and blue too

Just realized I used this title before... Brick and Blue the original.

Contrails and flag

I have posted pictures of contrails before. I guess the welcomed blue sky and the red-white-and-blue attracted my attention.

Repurposed

It's not unusual to find old manufacturing spaces recycled into new uses... for retail, or offices, or even lofts for artists. What is unusual is that often these ventures start out with a bang and then slowly loose their appeal and degenerate into vacant and run-down tax evaders.

This space, Village Gate in Rochester, has not taken that path but instead continually reinvented and evolved, and doing OK even after thirty years of use.
