The inspiration for this post arose a few days ago when I couldn’t help but notice that autumn has graced London. The wet and drip of this British weather though has very much downplayed the beauty of its autumn leaves.
Therefore, this week ,Photo Journeys begin not with England, but New England – the beloved Northeastern region of the States to which I’m so attached. I was thrilled 2 hours ago when I found out that my alma-mater – Mount Holyoke College, topped the rank for the best campus to be on during autumn.
Call me biased, but our campus is undoubtedly one of the most splendid in the States (proven by Princeton Review, mind you). The first women’s college in the country, MtHolyoke is smack-dabbed in the middle of a small town called South Hadley (I lovingly/hatefully call “Shadley” for its cold, long winters) in Western Massachusetts.
And yet, you cannot speak of New England in general and our school in particular, without mentioning the gorgeous autumns – what I miss most from my 4 years there. The crisp air, auburn shades, reflections upon silent waters, and the infinite serenity that engulfs you on a stroll around the many lakes and back routes of the campus. Most of the photos here, which I took back in 2008, are of the back routes out and about MHC, I figure the more iconic ones with the buildings are readily available online. Without further ado, here is the Photo Journey series revisiting Mount Holyoke in Fall Shades! Enjoy ❤
