Photographer's Note

You would think that over time one could get used to a beautiful view but this gargoyle on the tower of St Mary the Virgin seems to be in this spot for many years and it still has its jaw dropped in awe! One could conclude that some things never stop to amaze.

I have followed other people’ photos of the Radcliffe Camera (in this photo). John, Maria, Martin, Bulent, they all provide fantastic notes as well. Malgo shows the view from the same tower but facing another direction. I don’t have anything to add. The weather was far from optimal but I really wanted to have a shot from this POV in my collection as well.

Radcliffe Camera (Camera, meaning "room" in Latin; colloquially, "Rad Cam") is a building of Oxford University, designed by James Gibbs in the English Palladian style and built in 1737–1749 to house the Radcliffe Science Library. It is sited to the south of the Old Bodleian, north of St. Mary's Church, and between Brasenose College to the west and All Souls College to the east.
