way back from work

When I don't work in the river every day I generally make my way home via lovely Holywell Street in Oxford. I hope I look a bit less tortured on my bike than this chap right when I took the photo:



Click back to the Monochrome Maniacs, brought together by Aileni for lots of b&w shots.

Love the architecture. Black & white gives it a timeless touch. Poor guy on the bike looks a bit like he's pedaling into the wind.

Doesn't seem to fit his bike, does he?

Wow, this is a great shot. I really like it at lot. The man who struggles on his bike, and the lamp that's broken. And the nice light at the house.

This one is in my top 3 so far. Was it taken yesterday or 20 years ago. It is a time traveller. Love it. Beautiful city.
