Different Worlds – Kings College, Cambridge

I took these two photographs (panoramas on my iPhone) barely thirty yards from one another, and yet the clamour of one and the peace of the other are like scenes from different worlds.

The first is looking from the gate of King’s College, Cambridge onto the street and the second photo is looking at King’s College Chapel and surrounding buildings from within the college grounds.

    Ah! One of my favourite places in the whole wide world.


    1. Must take binoculars next time to look at the stained glass in the chapel. Amazing how old it is and how wonderful.

        It certainly is incredible.

    How true this is, David: This is certainly an excellent way to encapsulate the different worlds here.


    1. And the sounds as well – the quiet inside the college and the bustle on the street.

        Yes, another very apparent and relevant comparison: Such a stark difference between the two.
