Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

The Radcliffe Camera has been posted many times on TE and it is often felt to be quite an isolated building. What I wanted to show today, is the setting of the building and show that it is associated with lots of other beautiful, historic buildings.

The Radcliffe Camera is the building on the left. We can see All Soul's College and I think, in the f/g St. Mary's.

You can see that there are gardens in which to sit and relax, an impression you don't get from the usual view of the Camera building.

As a workshop, I will post the usual view of the Radcliffe Camera so that you can get an impression of the building, if you have never seen it before.

The circular dome and drum of the Radcliffe Camera provides one of Oxford's most iconic sights, and is a distinctive landmark in a city full of distinctive landmarks! The camera (the word means simply "room") was built 1737-1749 with 40,000 pounds bequeathed by Dr John Radcliffe, the royal physician. -Internet

The only way that you can see inside the building is to pay for a guided tour.

Enjoy your day, Bev :-)
