Idyllic emergency!

Greetings Marilyn, This is a very nice setting. I guess the first thing you notice is the emergency phone - it really stands out. Shame we have come to that on our campuses. Beautiful architecture. Thanks for sharing.



Marilyn Whiteley on September 12, 2008

Thank you, Tamás, Rapidshot, and Rich. I'm sorry that the intrusive emergency phone is thought to be needed, but but as a woman who has often walked through universities at night, I'm glad it's there.

As you see from the map, the campus is in downtown Toronto, but its beautiful architecture and landscaping make it an oasis in the big city.

Cheers, Marilyn

It's a very good image, Marilyn and one of your distinctive genres. I appreciate the sharpness of the foreground frame and the human elements, particularly. Ian

The architecture of the building not attached to the phone.the contrast is interesting.Cheers, Miguel

Marilyn Whiteley on September 14, 2008

Thank you, Flavio, Luis, Ian, Miguel, and Irene.

I loved the archway with its ivy, but some construction made a picture the other direction impossible. But there was that red thing!!! Gradually I realized that it offered an interesting contrast, both visually and in terms of what the photo "said". Sometimes what at first seems bad turns out to be good! Cheers, Marilyn

Very nice and interesting shot Marilyn!!

Greetings from Greece, Kostas

Marilyn Whiteley on September 17, 2008

Thank you, Kostas, Larry, and blai. I loved the archway but wasn't sure I could get a satisfactory photo. I'm glad you approve. Marilyn
