Trinity Scholars

The doorways along Trinity College's Long Walk have the heads of scholars above the lanterns.  I took four scholars and made a collage.

To be honest, I have no idea how to make a real collage, so I improvised.  Don't tell anyone.

Your pictures are great and you did a great collage! :)
The "heads"look to be old but they are clean and well care.

I think this looks fine, although it's probably more of college than a collage! :)

Virginia said...

I won't breathe a word, but if you go to PIcasa, it's a piece o cake.

These four guys look like escapees from a Grimms tale!

Nice collage. Did you cross the eyes on the two on the right too? ha ha.

EG CameraGirl said...

You're clever, Jack! The collage turned out well.

Sharon said...

You did a good job knitting these photos together! That guy on the bottom right seems to be a bit cross eyed.

Interesting looking fellows and your secret is safe with me! But Virginia is right, collages are a snap with Picasa! Hope you have a great week, Jack!!

You did a good job Jack, still laughing at Lowell and Randy's comments. I must admit the idea of creating a collage was totally out of the question for a technophobe like moi, but then as Virginia said......I discovered Picasa, and now, too easy :)Wouldn't like to walk down that Long Walk at night with all those faces looking down on me, creepy much!

RedPat said...

What is it with those eyes?! You did well, Jack - just stumble along with the technology.

Are you heading back up north soon?

VP said...

A good idea and some interesting high-reliefs... By the way, I make my rare collages exactly like you did this one!

Four very different faces.
Four stories, four lives...

Oh the eyes of the top right one... How one wishes one knew who they were, what their lives were...

Valerie said...

A great post, Jack. That sculpturing is fabulous and I agree with cielequimper: judging by the dates on their collars they would doubtless have some interesting stories to tell! (Thanks for dropping by my blog)

I like it! Have you been to the Yale campus, particularly the Law school area. Tons of gargoyles and there is some interesting history on them on the Yale Website. Thanks for getting back to me about your other photos and the lighting.

Interesting sculpture work on these busts. The fellow at the top right looks like he's up to something.
