The pranksters have been busy


There was a Princeton versus Yale football game this weekend. Blue is Yale's color and everyone woke to a Yale-blue Scudder Plaza pool for game day. (I've shown those Ai Weiwei zodiac statues before.)

Lol, it looks like a lagoon. With spinach tagliatelle on the sculpture.

Anecdótica foto, muy bien hecha.

Cool blue..did it work, did Yale win? I remember the Zodiac heads Lulu.

cieldequimper - I love it! Though I'm suddenly yearning for spinach tagiatelle (funny how that happens:)

a.s.m. - thank you! I still use the same Canon point-and-shoot, but maybe I'm finally better and holding it steady:) For the turtle and fog photo, however, I tried Mr. L's newer Panasonic Lumix - it's got a stronger zoom!

Mo - if I hadn't known about the prank, I would've been creeped out by the sudden blue!:)

PerthDailyPhoto - haha, alas the Yale pre-game antics didn't quite work, Princeton won;-)

Should it not be that colour then?

I bet that pool is a target for all sorts of pranks. Nice to have a topical photo in the mix. Do I see a little bit of snow on the steps?? Looks like sandbags are keeping the sculptures in place too.

Chrissy - usually the water is the same dullish white/tan/beige as the ground tiles, so this was a bit of change (colorful one though).

LOLfromPasa - you're so right about the pool...and great eye! There was still snow on the ground, and those bags on the sculptures were from the hurricane (amusingly, they were bags of animal feed) - not the most high tech solution, but the sculptures did stay put in the winds!:)

I remember your other photo. What a difference! Students are great. So much energy! Too bad for them, it was wasted energy!

EG CameraGirl said...

Ha! Yale sure did make their presence known!

LOLfromPasa said...

How imaginative to use animal feed bags. I would have loved being in the room when that decision was made :).

There's nothing better than a smooth water surface for the perfect reflection photo.

Bad Yale, bad!!!!!

Revenge must be undertaken, post haste.

Lovely photo though!
