I have been sorting through my photos for various reasons, and I came across the blog photos I used on Windows Live Space a few years ago. It was lovely looking through the old blogs, and it reminded me of many lovely things.
Crossing a bridge to ‘The Backs’
The Mathematical Bridge
Way back in 2008 our daughter was applying for Universities, one of which was Cambridge, so we visited this beautiful city twice in 2008 for Alice to have a look round, and for me to take lots of photos!
The Bridge of Sighs, St Johns College
Henry Vlll watching over the city.
A beautiful garden in one of the Colleges.
The photos from the first visit were taken on my very old ‘point and shoot’ camera, but already the photography bug had taken hold, and by the time we made the second visit I had upgraded my camera to the Canon G8 which I loved. That camera was replaced in 2011 for a Canon G12 which I am still using.
Approaching The Bridge of Sighs from the inside.
Proudly bearing the date.

Combining the photos of the two visits for this blog I can tell the difference in the two cameras, and we visited Kings College Chapel when I was using the old camera – sadly the photos of the interior are not good, so perhaps I need to go and visit again?? Good excuse I think
Kings College Chapel from The Backs.
Wonderful carving in the Kings College Chapel.
The magnificent ceiling in the Chapel.
I love the colours spilling on to the window sills.
Both visits to this beautiful city were amazing, our daughter went to University at SOAS (School of African and Asian Studies) where she got her degree in Chinese Studies. She is now working in a Translation Company near Gerards Cross in Buckinghamshire, and ultimately she is hoping to move to Beijing to work at some time in the future.
I hope you have enjoyed the rewind, I must see what else I can find in my saved photos!
And to finish there are Angels – there had to be Angels!
