Princeton by night

Except for the background, this dim-lit scene probably hasn't changed much since London was capital of America.  (This building still retains 1700s cannonball damage).

And so she ran in feverishly, her gown swooshing in the summer breeze, her hear fluttering...

History is all around us, some of it not so obvious you just need an imagination.

Excellent composition Lulu, the light draws your eye to the welcoming warmth of whatever is awaiting through the archway!

Tanya said...

Ha! I've never thought of London being the capital of America! I like the thought. :)

Petrea - thank you! :)

cieldequimper - haha, love the shot of creativity - thank you! My imagination sometimes runs wild on those evening strolls, I admit :)

Paul - I like that, yes sometimes all it takes is a bit of imagination...

PerthDailyPhoto - thank you! Actually, there's a mystery side door through the archway - the only one I have never seen open. I'm curious about what's behind it! (Perhaps just a mundane broom closet :)

Tanya - thank you! :)

EG CameraGirl - thanks! It was only after someone pointed that out to me...I realized how odd/true it was :)

A lovely atmopshere it evokes too, along with so much history.

Adele said...

Amazing. Thanks for the great imagery.

How wonderful all the history that surrounds you in Princeton! From the link you posted, I read "From July to October 1783, Princeton was the capital of the early United States of America" - amazing! Thank you (again) for another interesting history lesson ;)

Chrissy, Adele, Catherine - thanks so much for your sweet comments!

@Catherine, this country has had more capitals than centuries of existence, haha! I remember reading that too, and found it fascinating. :)
