Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm sure you will have guessed that this is Oxford since this is the city that I have recently visited and, there is no sign of a canal under the bridge.

However, this bridge is often called 'The Bridge of Sighs', like its counterpart in Venice.

But, according to the Internet, this bridge which links together the Old and New Quadrangles of Hertford College, designed by Sir Thomas Jackson, bears a closer resemblance to the Rialto Bridge.

I suppose it isn't really that important, what is important is that it makes an easily recognisable feature in the Oxford landscape and being so close to the Radcliffe Camera (which I posted earlier) is a very frequently photographed building. I had to wait to get a photograph without lots of people walking in front of me and my camera!

This the the common view, with the Radcliffe Camera behind me. I will add a close up of the bridge and a reverse view as workshops.

Thanks for sharing these memories of Oxford, Bev :-)
