SnapKeddie: Overarching Beauty

This is the second installment of our "SnapKeddie" semi-regular feature -- the pulling together of our favorite photos from the week, or from however long it's been since our last SnapKeddie post. :)

Princeton is such a beautiful place to photograph. David and I have gone on a number of photography walks during the odd free hours we have together, and we've been pretty pleased with our results so far. Of course, with a subject like Princeton, we'd be pretty pleased with pictures taken by a disposable camera, too... :)

There are so many beautiful details in the gothic architecture of upper campus. So here are a few of our favorite Princeton archways, buildings, and stone details -- enjoy!

Oh please, we're all just ripping off Oxford. You're just bitter because Princeton did it WAY better than Yale did. :)
