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.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
