Oxford, a year in the life: Winter

First of all, I would like to apologise for my long absence on the blog these last couple of months… I’ve been so busy with my studies at Oxford this term, I haven’t been able to sit down and think about content for the blog. But rest assured, I’ve still been taking photos and travelling dans la mesure du possible, so I still have stories to share with you.

This last term at Oxford has actually been one of my favourites so far. I had more important work to submit  which will count towards my degree, but much less small deadlines every week which means I was able to organise my time freely, and work continuously while actually managing a balanced life. Something I would have thought impossible the previous term.

This morning my mom told me she thought this winter had been particularly long and tough. But in hindsight, I find all winters are long and tough. Having lived between the Tropics for a good chunk of our lives, my family and I are not really made for the weather in England, so we find things which make us cope. Personally, what has helped me survive the cold, the rain and the wind in January and February was making new friends, finding shelter in Oxford’s cosy coffee shops, and going on long walks in Port Meadow when the sun dared to show its nose.

So I bring you some of my film photographs from the last winter I’ll ever spend in Oxford (I think).
