Photographer's Note

Great Tew is a tiny village north of Oxford. On a cold misty winter day I came across the largely derelict Tudor house and captured it on Kodachrome-25 film, which I just recently scanned into digital format. A year later when I visited the village, I saw that the house had deteriorated further, with the roof having collapsed in places. Several years later when I visited again, I found the house restored -- but no longer presenting the hauntingly beautiful view you see in this photo. (I was a member of the Department of Theoretical Physics at Oxford University at the time.)
