The sound of the resonating low tone of the organ echoes against the walls. One step at a time, I enter the eerie chapel, wary of where I walk. The sound and counterpoint melodies of the organist fill the damp air, hammering my mind. The beautiful, glorious scenery awes me: the colours, the display, the light. Let us not forget where we stand.

There was something a little fishy going on
I walked by Strachan Hall one day and saw schools of lovely paper fish swimming across the windows. Peeking through the viewfinder of my camera, I wanted to capture the cheerful scene created by their brilliant colours. It turned out that the artwork was done for the 2012 Conversat Ball, which had a theme called “20,000 beats under the sea.” To me, the fish are the most creative decorations to light up the Trinity campus this year!

I took this picture outside of Strachan Hall, in the Trinity College quad. It was the first snowfall of the New Year. The College was quiet and peaceful with the advent of the snow. I walked by this scene, caught sight of the warmth of the lights, stopped, and took a series of photos, all the while humming the Christmas carol “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.” The snowy season is here, so is the winter term of school.

I was on my way to the Graham Library when I turned the corner and was greeted by this sight. There was only one other person in the corridor and the light coming in from the windows was perfect – standing at one end, I was pulled in by the geometry of the place.
This corridor in the Munk School of Global Affairs is, in my opinion, one of the most attractive and peaceful places on campus. One gets a sense of calm walking through the hall, which is framed by mauve stone walls and lightly scented cedar rafters. The big glass windows allow natural light to shine through and the sound of the fountain outside to trickle inside. On a day like today, I am content to sit on one of the wooden benches lining the hall, flipping through a history book.

One crisp fall day I was walking through Trinity’s stunning quad. I came across this statue of Johannes Strachan, our founder or “Fundator” as it is inscribed underneath the statue. I love the expression on his face as he looks out over the quad, and the way the yellow leaves interact with the aged, green statue. I love the sense of history at the College and Strachan is such a huge part of it!

One sunny afternoon I was sitting in the junior common room (JCR) with some fellow Trinity students reading a book. Typically I don’t think that much about my surroundings when studying, but after reading several hundred pages I decided to give my eyes a rest. Glancing up from the book, I noticed the sunlight pouring through the grand window, which highlighted perfectly the beautiful composition of the JCR. This photo captures the soft tones and friendliness of the room, open to all students for relaxation and quietude.

One summer afternoon my friend and I decided to take a tour of our College, to discover its unexpected beauty – something special that we hadn’t had the time nor mood to pay attention to during the busy school year.
We had long been aware of the chapel’s existence, yet neither of us, to our surprise, had stepped inside it since our Frosh Week. We read the pamphlet on display just outside the chapel, which summarizes its history, and wandered in. There was no one there. We parked ourselves on a bench and suddenly felt as if all the summer chaos had subsided. This photo of my friend is a memory of that moment.
