Oxford (Part 1)


1 - Emily's work is a convenient bus ride distance from Oxford, so on Friday I went along to check out what all the fuss was about... One of the good aspects of winter travel is that there aren't too many tourists about, so I spent a very pleasant day wandering about and photographing old things. I also had a look through the Modern Art Oxford gallery - one of the installations featured a dentists chair and a couple of robot drills which proceeded to administer all sorts of grievous bodily harm to the chair's imaginary occupant. Quite the scene, standing there in the galley... in the dark... alone...
