Isolation Photo Project, Day 49

This afternoon Bhavna and I went to the Princeton University campus. The intent was to change our routine and walk the campus for exercise for a change of scenery. Of course, I brought my camera. Near University Place and College Road intersection, we donned our facemasks - it's all the fashion these days - and sauntered toward Henry Hall and Laughlin Hall. I photographed some of the trees and buildings in the mottled light of the afternoon sun. We found our way to the newly named Beatrix Ferrand Courtyard. My camera found windows, doors, trees, and flowers to photograph as we walked toward the steps up to Blair Hall. We encountered a few people, many of whom wore masks, but others did not. We had enough rooms to keep almost three metres from people.

We strolled toward Easy Pyne Hall, where I took more photographs. I remembered the gardens at Prospect House & Garden, and knowing that Bhavna had never been there, I suggested we make our way over. We spent a lot of time walking between the trees, flowers and plants. Bhavna complained that I had never told her about the garden. As I expected, the garden had more people than the other parts of campus but not enough to be a problem. The campus is closed, so empty of students.

After Prospect House & Garden, I explored the campus with Bhavna. There are many areas we have yet to visit. More photographs. I was hungry, and Bhavna had to use the bathroom, so we cut back westbound toward where we parked. I took more photos along the way, including one of a red fox. At first, I thought it was a statue, but then the fox moved its head and twitched its ears. I think this fox is the same one that has been spotted near the Dinky Station. We stared at each other for about a minute before the scrawny-looking fox ran off.

As I sat here picking the keepers, I realised I didn’t like them. Perhaps I am just creativity exhausted or just exhausted. Of the 250 images I captured, I have deleted all but seven.
