PT Challenge #186: CLASSICAL

Hi al,l I am so glad that everybody had so much fun with the theme I chose last week, thanks for all your amazing contributions. Mitch has chose "Classical" as this weeks theme. While Marci was here visiting me we took a trip to "Classical Oxford" so I selected my shots from that trip.

First a classical building connecting bridge

  1. Hi Baz!! Three awesome shots for the theme!! Out of the two 'classical' university cities, I've only visited Cambridge. Would dearly love to visit Oxford one of these days. Love the 'bridge between two buildings', I remember that from Morse episodes. The iron and glass ceiling of the Natural History museum is fantastic, and the Bodlian Library entrance is pure classical architecture.
