I've studied at Oxford, too. It looks good on my CV...
Chris: A degree in sheep spotting, or maybe advanced cream tea analysis?

Yes, I reognize Oxford, Radcliffe Camera .., Oxford is one of my favourite towns, Tom has studied there, too ...
Chris: Indeed he did study there Philine - what a delightful place. And, of course, Tom is an equally delightful man
Oxford.....a fine place unless you are in a car!
Chris: That is absolutely correct Ole Bean. I parked many miles away and walked, then eventually took a bus back to my starting place using my old git's pass..
Some attractive old buildings. I wonder if the spires are for decorative purposes only or if they serve another purpose.
Chris: Presumably they are just decorative Mary
Is that the Bodleian on the right and the Sheldonian beyond?
Chris: I think so Tom

I think this is St. Mary's Church beyond and All Souls College on the right?
Chris: Err..I expect you are right Philine but I seem to remember the building with the dome is Radcliffe Camera

The Sheldonian looks a bit different.
Chris: Please refer to my other comment
I wonder if anyone has photographed all the wonderful buildings of Oxford. That would be such a great project to take on. Really like how you've captured this one, Chris.
Chris: Thank you Bev: if I lived in Oxford I expect I'd try to photograph everything
I thought this was Oxford, I've only ever been there twice, many years ago, but of course I grew up just 13 miles from Cambridge, need i say more.
Chris: I take your point Brian

I've only been once Chris, I must go again, it is a lovely place
Chris: It really is gorgeous Anne, there's just so much to see & enjoy there
Is this a dry day in Droitwich...?
Chris: Droitwich doesn't have dreaming spires Larry

I like the elaborate bike racks, Chris...Oxford seems full of good stuff of that sort.
