I ❤ My Workplace | Jesus College, Cambridge |

I consider myself to be extremely lucky to work in one of the most prestigious working environments in Cambridge. It is a place that is distinctly peaceful and sets it apart from all other Cambridge Colleges. The place is filled with delightful photographic opportunities and I wanted share a few of my favorite photographs that I had taken over the last few months. Some has been edited and filtered, others have not. Enjoy! ヅ


‘The Chimney’ – Main Entrance and Cambridge’s most common mode of transport




First Court | Sculpture: Barry Flanagan : Bronze Horse 1983






First Court with the Horse Sculpture and Cloister Court – The sun always cast the best arch shadows


Quincentenary Library Antony Gormley : Learning to See




Sculpture: Danny Lane: Empress Glass


Sculpture: Sir Eduardo Paolozzi : Daedalus on Wheels 1994, Bronze, Chapel Court




Second Court with the infamous ‘bent bushes’. Sculpture: Geoffrey Clarke : Call it Hadrian's Wall


Jesus College Chapel




Chapel Court & The archway known as ‘Angel Arch’



Ever wondered what a ‘Fellow’s’ office looked like inside? Not much, just books and a desk…but some Fellows' offices do seem very ‘old worldly’ in some of them…

    1. @Sheila, Thank you my lovely! I'm all for supporting a fellow blogger :) Yes, I do feel very lucky to be part of Jesus College - its not religious or anything like that at all which people assume from the name, but it does have it traditional values which I love.
      I'll look forward to your future posts xoxo
