Arches of Princeton

Rockefeller College, Princeton University. This student residence has its own dining, study and other facilities, to encourage a sense of community. I'm signing off for a week and half to see family. Be well, see you soon!

Tenemos una buena foto con la dificultad añadida de que es en interior, con los problemas de iluminación y que están muy bien resueltos. En cuanto al edificio se ve que es hermoso, buena foto.
Un saludo, Angel

I love arches like this. It rather reminds me of some of the architecture in our Parliament Buildings.

Paul - thanks! While I'm not sure of the history, I recall someone saying this college was modelled after those at Oxford! I wouldn't be surprised:)

Tanya - thanks! It was a low-light situation, I'm glad some decent rays got through :)
