Views from the Tower of St Mary's Church, Oxford

A few photos from my trip up St. Mary's Tower, which, as it turns out, is right in the middle of Oxford.

The University Church of St. Mary is slap bang in the middle of Oxford and although I walk past it most days, I’ve never really stopped to look at it properly until we were showing a group of friends around the city. When they looked at it and asked if you could go up the tower, we had no idea if you could or not so further investigation was needed.

Turns out it’s about £2 or £3 to go up but when you get to the top, the views are fab. My favourite side looks over the Radcliffe Camera, but you could get equally good photos from any. No doubt I’ll go back again with as many cameras as I can carry.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
