Shadow Shot Sunday - Ashmolean
On our recent trip to visit family we enjoyed a day out in Oxford. Despite the fact that my sister-in law has lived in a nearby village for many years, we had never actually visited the town. Amends have now been made, and I am very glad we did. After wandering around looking at the skyscape and window shopping in the Covered Market and side streets we had a quick dash round the Ashmolean Museum. What a fantasic place - recently refurbished - the way the collections are displayed is truly stunning. Being the well trained subject that I am, I kept my camera lens cap on , but coming down stairs we came across this whole wall of busts by Sir Francis Chantrey , with nice little shadows attached.. I very politely asked a chap sporting a V neck jumper with the museum logo on if I could take a picture and he said "Please do!" - just like that! So I did - The Chantrey Wall. I hope you like it as we had to run for our bus and there are no more. I'll be back!
Do visit Tracy and friends for Shadow Shot Sunday - you never know where you will end up.
