Banbury illustrated.

A nursery rhyme, 'Ride a Cock Horse', has made Banbury one of the best-known towns in England. A view from the cross.

That's some architecture. They've curved it so slightly. Lovely street.
John Prior: Thank You Sherri.
great architectural shot! where are all the people though? smile
John Prior: Thanks Charles, I do like to avoid getting people in shots, unless they add something of course. Happy New Year.

John Prior: Thanks Peter, a happy new year to you and yours smile
Three Estate Agents and a Nursery. At least the latter is appropriate grin
John Prior: Well spotted Bill. The Nursery and the rhyme, pity about all the estate and letting agents, there must be at least a dozen in this street alone.

If this is Banbury it looks full of charm & character John
John Prior: Thanks Chris, parts of the old town still look inviting and the Grand Union Canal adds interest.
It takes more than The unsharpmask to get these surfaces... smile
John Prior: Thanks Pekka, have been playing with Topaz adjust, most of the supplied presets are OTT, but you can set and save your own versions. I often also fade the filter effect in Photoshop CS3

What style of building is that, Cotswold Baroque?
John Prior: Looks solid doesn't it. Thanks Chad
Beautiful urban architecture! Really nice picture!
Have a nice day.
John Prior: Thanks a lot Dom
That main building is a fine old one John, I suspect it might have been a bank or similar.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, yes most likely, would certainly give the right impression smile

beautiful scene. nicely done.
John Prior: Thanks Otto smile
Just look at those two beautiful old tiled roofs (nursery and estate agent next door). Full of interest and texture, and much more photogenic than the black slate.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, yes indeed.
