Trinity College Windows

.
Just to the left of the Campanile I showed you yesterday is this delightful building (which thanks to Heckety I now know is called the Graduate Memorial Building), also part of Dublin's Trinity College. I think I'd literally feel smarter studying history in a building that looked like that, wouldn't you?

Look here for more doors and windows from around the world.

I agree, I feel smarter just looking at it.

I feel smarter just looking at a building like that one. Would love to sit there and draw that building.

I don't know if it's the building or the light, but this has the same metallic look at the tower from yesterday. It's fascinating! I love it.

It's very pretty building. I think the sun makes the color of the building so fascinating. Happy Wednesday!

It's a wonderful photo, Robin. You captured it beautifully, and got lovely reflections on the windows. I think this is the building that featured in the film Educating Rita- a good watch sometime!

Heckety said...

That's a lovely photograph! My folks would love it too.Did you know some of Trinity was used in one of the Star Wars films too?!

Robin said...

I did in fact - when we visited the Book of Kells and the Long Room Library they said it was the site of the Jedi Counsel or something in the Clone Wars movie. I never saw the movie but it's certainly one heck of a room.

What a beautiful and stately looking building! I DO feel smarter!

The architecture (both pics) is pretty impressive. I think just standing on campus would intimidate me!

Such a beautiful building!

Indeed, places of higher learning ought to be housed in imposing edifices. Great shot.

Ha, good point.

I once studied history a long time ago, and I would agree that studying history in a nice historical building might make one feel smarter, but feeling and being are two different things. : )

I love how it's gray, but it's certainly not dull!

lovely robin! why is it that there's absolutely *nothing* like "old stuff?" (how's that for eloquent?!) old buildings, old photographs, old letters. good for the mind, good for the soul. thanks for the reminder.
