Cambridge revisited

It’s been a while since I last posted some pictures instead of writing a technical article. Fortunately, here are some pictures I took in Cambridge this weekend while visiting my brother, Edmund.

A weekend in Hereford

Hannah and I went to Hereford this weekend. The weather was nice, and we had a really nice time relaxing. I managed a few photos too. The golden Autumn sunlight cast a lovely glow over the city. First we visited the cathedral. It seemed rude to take photos inside, but I managed this photo of […]
