The Radcliffe Camera

An older shot, scaffolding on the righthand side at the moment. Went to Oxford on Sunday for a heritage open day, a chance to look at parts of the older colleges not usually open to the public, which was interesting despite the gloomy weather. A few shots to follow.

We had our Monument Day on Saturday here in the Netherlands, John, which may be similar, since all our nationsal monuments are open free to the public. One day a year...and you have to pick which one you want to go see!

What a FABULOUS shot of this architectural beauty!
John Prior: Thanks Ginnie

What a gorgeous building. The fisheye again?
John Prior: No an older shot taken with a Canon 450D with Sigma 10-20mm zoom at 13mm, so a pretty wide angle though.
It is a handsome building and you have done it justice John
John Prior: Thank you Bill

Interesting place.

It's a very fine building isn't it, and surrounded by other very impressive buildings also.
