For years I have wanted to visit Princeton University. It’s not far from where I live, but like many things, I put it off year after year. I also wanted to get some fall images before it was gone. Why not do both? Good thing I did because shortly after our trip there, the storm blew most of the remaining color away.

Princeton is an absolutely beautiful campus. It became one of those times when as a photographer, there is a struggle to be either a participant or an observer. I have an appreciation for architecture but Princeton has a much greater appreciation for architecture. When you think of an Ivy League school, this is one of the best examples you’ll find. I grew up closer to Harvard, so I like that place the best, but it’s very close to a tie.

This is another of the many great buildings on campus, this one with the ivy one would expect, and much more. Imagine that this is only one of a great number of buildings that are equally fantastic – and all around where you are standing and around every corner you turn.
