Angles on Oxford

I took these photographs of Oxford some time ago when I was seeking possible images for a book of local short stories. In the end, something completely different was chosen as is the way with these things. However I thought I would share them anyway.

Wonderful photos, Laura, really atmospheric and remind me yet again that I really must make a visit to Oxford sometime soon - it's been over 5 years since I was last there, foolish when it is so close.

They're terrific...makes me realise how long it is since I've been to Oxford...

Lovely shots Laura, I particularly like the one with the glow in the window and the grey outside...

Haven't ever been to Oxford, but from these photos that is completely my loss. It's beautiful! Is that where Morse was filmed??

Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed my virtual visit through your camera lens! The touch of snow was very pretty and I especially liked the flower box in front of the window of your former office. So pretty! I hope you will do more of these slide shows in the future. It's nice to see the variety of architecture. I do have one question for you though. What exactly is a "high" street? Is it a popular road? Forgive my ignorance from across the ocean but we don't use those terms here so I'd love it if you could clear that up for me! :)

Thanks for all the lovely comments folks.

Yes Sagittarian, this is the city where Morse was filmed.

Teeni, a 'High Street' is what the main street of most towns and villages is known as in this country. I'm guessing you have a lot of 'Main Street's in the US?

Great pics, but I got awfully seasick.
