I live near the beautiful city of Cambridge, which is one of my favourite places to photograph (when it is not too busy). I have now photographed many different parts of the city, although I have many more images to take on my ‘wish list’. In contrast, Oxford has received much less photographic attention from me. In order to address this, I spent three days in Oxford with all the family, staying at the characterful Old Bank Hotel. This has a perfect location close to the Bodleian Library. To view all the photos taken, visit:
We visited Christ Church, which is regarded by many as one of the best (if not the best) Oxford Colleges to visit. The Cathedral (shown below) was absolutely stunning. The new Sony 14mm F1.8 GM lens proved perfect as a walkabout lens to capture the cathedral interior without the need for a tripod.
The Museum of Natural History was well worth the visit (below):
Food highlights included breakfasts at The Old Bank hotel (such as avocado with poached egg and crab – below) and the Banana Tree Restaurant, offering superb authentic Indochinese cuisine.
The Oxford Botanic Garden is another ‘must see’, and we enjoyed punting.
