Oxford

Okay, so this post is a tiny bit late since I went here a few days before Exhbitionism. But, it’s a city I frequent a lot and thought I’d share some photos from the day.

English weather started the day very grey and gloomy (nothing new there I guess) but it brightened up towards the end. Still, I find the architecture of the colleges so charming. I find this city so special, an element of magic exists within it (particularly true if you’re a Harry Potter fan, given what was filmed here).

I think that the gloominess matches the architecture, and if you can’t beat em’, join em’, right? So I went with it and the gloom brought out the detail and the beauty of the buildings. The stone looked deeper and the grass looked greener, weird but it works.

I also took a lot of pictures on my 35mm film camera, so I’ll probably see them alongside god knows what when I finally get all my reels developed. There could be a future post on miscellaneous film.

I’ve been to Oxford a lot in the past, yet this was the first time we paid to go inside the Bodleian. How did we leave it this long? Inside it truly is something else, but they had a photography restriction, and when you’re in a group of ten in a building with loads of CCTV, covert photography is pretty much impossible. But, the library is actually extended underground and even into different counties since it is so massive. It has a deal with a publisher which states that the library gets one copy of every book they publish. As you’d imagine, this is a lot more than this building can hold!
