Pictures of Princeton University 

I finally got out with my new camera on a clear day. In some ways, Princeton is prettier with the leaves down -- you can see a lot more, and distances collapse. Herewith, the best of the lot (with apologies to those few of you still struggling with dial-up).

And, as a special bonus, a picture of the blue post-Victorian that your blogger will call home about three months from now.

The new TigerHawk home

Nice crib! Ours is a 1905 "Princes Anne" that we saved from the wrecking ball by dismantling it and moving it out af a commercially zoned area of Richmond. Quite a story, but we were young and naive and didn't have the sense NOT to do it.

Been in love with the house ever since. We're still "renovating" 25 years later!

A photogenic campus.

A while back you posted about your then-new house that had a lot of woods. There were some posts about defacing of McCain signs. So does this make three different houses in three years or less?

Boludo, it's complicated.

Thanks for the pics, TH. Very nice one of old Witherspoon Hall, my home from 1998-2000.

Somehow, when people walk around campus and take pictures, they never used to make it down to the Wilson-Butler area... I wonder if that will change with the Butler rebuild.

What kind of camera?

Convenient landing zone; just a block away and around a corner from your favorite coffee store if I'm not mistaken. Best of luck to you in your new home.

@SR, Nikon D40, link now supplied.

@Howard, I got down to Wilson College, back of 1937, where I actually lived freshman year. My photos did not set me free, though, so I didn't up load them.

I'm sorry you couldn't work things out, but maybe it will be for the best

Will you be painting the house Red?

What, no E-Quad? Upstart II by Clement Meadmore has been restored to its original Cor-Ten finish.
