St John's College, Oxford


Today we were fortunate to enjoy a personal tour of St John's College visiting the chapel (above) as well as the various quadrangles and college buildings. According to my Oxford guidebook, St John's College was founded in 1555 by a wealthy merchant Sir Thomas White whose heart is buried in the college chapel. It is reportedly one of the wealthiest colleges  in Oxford. 

It was also time to have a break from carrying camera gear so these pics were taken with my trusty little compact Lumix.

  1. Love the grainy finish to these shots, works very well with the images and the black and white scheme.
