Quiet morning in Cambridge

A beautiful, quiet morning in Cambridge yesterday, with ripe, autumnal colours of the veg stalls in the market, art school students cosily settled by Great St. Mary’s sketching crisp townscapes, and a few locals sailing past casually on their bikes. No tourists – just the freshness and immediacy of a weekday morning…

What the eye can’t see

What the eye can’t see, a virtual tour of Cambridge can reveal! I show my original photos of the sights that are not easily accessible or are currently closed to the public, so that you can catch a glimpse of  an inner court of a college, a staircase leading to students’ rooms, a historic lecture theatre, a scientific instrument from an exhibition that was used for a ground-breaking discovery, a graduation ceremony in June, and even the roof of King’s College Chapel.
