I wish I could carry my DSLR with me everywhere.
But it's cumbersome and not something I grab for every day.
(It would be in my dream day job though)
There have been many moments in Oxford and our various travels that have not been documented, unfortunately.
But every once and a while I remember I have a camera phone.
Thought I'd share some of those shots from the last year.
In no particular (and very random) order...
Christ Church gardens
Head of the River
Sunset over the Alps from the plane
More beautiful Alps - Slovenia
My boss owns a large piece of property with an impressive garden and carved shrubs!
Blenheim Palace, Woodstock
Pretty Oxford skyline
Back to Slovenia- boarding the plane
Wow- now we're in Louisiana and this is my cousin Miles with an alligator he caught while we were fishing. Haha! Two very different worlds.
Andy Warhol, The Tate Modern in London
Christmas lights in Oxford- bikes get Oxfordonians in the holiday spirit.
Cute post office in Cumnor Village
Waggle Dance - good marketing for women because it's "cute"
Lincoln College Quad- after dinner. Love the ivy
More Lincoln, more beautiful ivy
Lincoln College library- very impressive
Evening walk along the Thames and the horses were out
Walking through Christ Church meadow to dinner at the McCosker's
Rose Lane- rose garden
Top deck bus ride in the rain
I hope I'm still working out at 100. But I also think it's slight discrimination to cap it at 100.
I think it should just be open ended, don't you?
Cute curly haired pigs from a local farm at The Oxford Castle Food festival
Right around the corner was a demonstration on how to butcher various cuts of pork. Poor guys
Back to Slovenia. This is some magical Christmas space fairy on a tall chair who managed to draw a huge crowd and line. When it was your turn you walked under the fairy person and she then placed styrofoam balls at the end of a fishing pole on your head. We think she either read your thoughts on what you wanted for Christmas or would grant you a wish? What ever happened to simply sitting on Santa's lap? Is that American only? We watched this for a good 10 minutes to try to figure out what was going on.
Strange styrofoam balls on fishing line- better view
In keeping with non traditional Christmas things- the lights in Slovenia were very.....
scientific on this one street.
I think that's a black hole, the sun, the Milky Way , meteors, and maybe a neutron star.
Yes, it's definitely a Christmas neturon star.
Oh wait, what a jolly and spirited strand of a DNA ladder- in lights!
I will leave you with that.
Have a great weekend!
