Oxford - small stuff

When I visit somewhere new I often get distracted from the small stuff that I really like and end up just concentrating on the the big and famous.  Despite both it fame and proximity to where I was born, I had never visited Oxford until my most recent trip to the UK.  So I was determined to photograph some of the small stuff, the stuff that gives a place a real sense of character.

I'll post some of the 'bigger stuff' for Tuesday.  SM

For the first 18 years of my life, my home was within 40 miles of Oxford, Stewart. I think I only visited once! Your post has given me the resolve to return there sometime in the not too distant future - and I mustn't let the Morse stories make me worry about my safety ;-}

Best wishes from UK - - - Richard
