Oxford: A Concise Photo Tour

Hi!  I've been settling into life in Oxford for about a week and a half now.   Our meteoric term begins on Monday, so, as you might imagine, I'm unlikely to produce any substantial thoughts here in the next couple of months.  I've been putting off blogging until I had an acceptable cache of photos to share.  Yesterday was beautiful and sunny, so I wandered around shamelessly taking pictures of anything that simultaneously caught the light and my eye.  (Disclaimer: I have no idea what formatting will show up on Facebook.  If it's horrendous, click "Original Post" at the bottom.)  So, here's a little taste of what I've been encountering day to day.

The Historic 
(The Saxon Tower)


The Iconic 
(Radcliffe Camera)


The Monumental 
(Commemorating the "Oxford Martyrs")



The Terrifying 
("The Grey Book" describing course examinations for this year.
It's two inches thick.  Fortunately, only 2 pages apply to my course!)



The Optimistic 
(Very much needed after the Grey Book!)



The Autumnal 



The Pretentious



The Melodramatic



The Inviting



The (as yet) Unexplored


I hope you enjoyed the tour!  There's more to come... sometime.

"The Unexplored" looks to me like something we explored a couple of years ago in dress shoes! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures whenever you have the time to post.
