Cambridge Photos
Posted By: heff, 05-16-2008, 04:50 PM


A collection of photos from my recent trip to Cambridge...

A staircase in St John's

St John's College

A side-street

Churchill College

Clare College

Lunch-time at the Granta

Bikes by The Mill

One of the things I like most about Cambridge is the variation in architecture and landscape it offers, from the classic feel of the old colleges to the sheer, modern buildings slightly further out of town. I can't decide which ones I like better - any thoughts?

As always advice is welcome! Thanks

Bike shot is outstanding, in my view.

Thanks for the opinions... I think my personal favourite is the first one, although I have to confess for having a bit of a thing about concrete in general! The muted, creamy colours seem very Cambridge to me. I'm having some issues with composition though, I think that perhaps "less is more" might be a principle I would benefit from, and perhaps I try to include too much of the surroundings and not so much of the particular thing that has made me want to take the photo... Any thoughts on how to get around that one would be most welcome

Thanks again
