I only had the pleasure of wandering the streets of Cambridge a short time, but if I had to pick one image that I felt captured that experience, this is the one. Although honestly I couldn't explain why? Is it the lovely old architecture of Whewell's Court on Trinity Street? Or a student rushing by on a bike? Probably a bit of all of the above. It's the Cambridge I experienced anyway as a passerby meandering through the streets and alleyways of that ancient seat of learning.
It was actually quite some time after I returned from my trip to England that I identified the building in question. I loved the architecture and that the general street scene told a story, but I always like to be able to tell people a bit more about the place. It turns out Whewell's Court was built as lodgings for Trinity College in the 1860's by the master of the college, William Whewell. I'm no expert on architecture, but I would think fairly safely that's in the Gothic Revival style.
Cambridge was a gorgeous city and this was just a tiny piece of it. Some day, I'd love to spend more time there capturing the scenes and architecture of that beautiful city.
