Quaint waiting room

For the wee "Dinky" train (posted before).
***
I also learned of the below locally-filmed ad - it includes sites I've shown. (But no one dresses like this, haha!)

This is a killer photo, so stark and severe - beautiful. The ad posted is a wonderful travelogue for Princeton.

I agree with Peter. It's also a wonderful place to wait compared with the horribly cold, dirty and modern waiting places that are built nowadays (often without seating...)

Lovely photo. It displays windows, light and space - just what I blogged about today as well!

¡Muy bien tomada! La perspectiva de la sala esta en el eje de la imagen, la nitidez de la foto es magnifica. Una buena foto de interior.
Efectivamente en el video salen imágenes que tu ya nos has mostrado.
Un saludo, Ángel

What an elegant waiting room! I'm sure I'd mess it up if I dared to use it!!!

What a fantastic shot Lulu, this has got to be one of the most pristine waiting rooms I've ever seen, love the polished wood. Such a shame it gets littered with people haha!

Tanya said...

it's a gorgeous waiting room! love that wood trim...that ad is cool...haha "nobody dresses like that"! i always wonder about these ads, i never see anyone dress that way either :D

LOLfromPasa said...

What a 'clean' shot. Perfect. Could this be your first ABC Wednesday entry? Great choice and I love the added video. Nice job, Lulu!

Catherine Goron said...

Outstanding symmetry Lulu, love the colors and light! So fantastic that RL used this spot (and many others you've highlighted) for their ad... Princeton is so full of history and beauty, much of which I didn't know about until I bumped into you ;)

LONDONLULU said...

Peter - thank you! Yes, that ad is like a 1-minute tour of Princeton (just need to look past all those clothes:)

cieldequimper - thank you! I find some modern waiting rooms pretty dreary too, sigh...Why can't practical things be built beautifully, anymore? :)

Duncan - thanks! All those things are key indeed (and great makeover at yours!)

a.s.m. - thank you! My point-and-shoot can't handle interiors well, but this place was too nice to resist:)

Chrissy - it really makes the start of a commute much nicer:)

Red Nomad - haha, I was there in jeans and didn't feel elegant enough to be in that old place!:)

Mildred - thank you! I hope your week is going well too:)

PerthDailyPhoto - haha, I was dying for people to leave so I'd get as 'pristine' a shot as possible (People kept coming in to use the loo! Which is where I was standing:)

Tanya - thanks! I know, those clothes are ridiculous, haha. Thankfully, no one here wears bowties and vests while playing football:)

LOLfromPasa - thank you! Now that you mention it, I guess it could be a Q entry! Perhaps I need to try being more creative & explore ABC:) Glad you enjoyed the advert!

Catherine - thank you! I found it pretty funny RL was filming around here, Princeton is in the middle of nowhere!:) I've been enjoying glimpses of your DC (and France!), makes me see the city anew:)

Adele said...

I love the Dinky Train Station! Beautiful photo. Amazing how many of "your" places they used in the ad. Funny, too, that you and LOL both featured Rugby today! (...and I know very few people that dress like that!)

LONDONLULU said...

Thanks Adele! That's so funny, now you mention - yes, we both featured Rugby, just in different ways! (I would have to consider moving if everyone here dressed like that RL ad:)))

Petrea Burchard said...

Oh fabulous! Your shots of all the commercial spots are lovely, too.

So, when I visit I shouldn't wear my pretend-chic letter sweater?

EG CameraGirl said...

Very classy! ;))

LONDONLULU said...

Petrea - hmm, the residents might gawp but RL will love it!;-)

EG - thank you!

Now that's a place that appeals tremendously to me!
