Dreaming Spires

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Natasha Tomm

Oxford, "the city of dreaming spires", is by itself a beautiful and inspiring city. It just makes you feel like you are walking through the streets of some village on a fairy tale. On that day the sky was specially amazing, like it has been beautifully painted in many shades of grey and blue, giving this phantasmagorical and magical feeling. The picture was taken through the window of a two-floor-red-bus, and the raindrops just gave a little blurred effect, giving the feeling of being a painting.

Location: Oxford, England, United Kingdom
