Headington Festival 2011

Headington Festival 2011

The Festival has been running for several years now and is gaining its place as a fixture on the Headington calendar – right up there with the open gardens (this week and next). All credit to Headington Action for being the driving force behind this.

A children’s brass ensemble performed today, to general admiration all round. They were great little performers ably lead by their conductor who wore a general, restrained air of anxiety right up to the final, warbling note. A tremendous achievement …

Cool cool water | A smaller splash

Cool cool water | 1/125 - 1/160 s | f/5 - f/6.2 | ISO 100 | 75 mm

It was a hot Sunday in Oxford the day I took this photo – some kids were jumping off a bridge into the Cherwell in the University Parks.

This picture is a composite of three images taken in quick succession, so as well as the boy in mid-air there is the splash he is going to make in a fraction of a second.

This is also part of my initial evaluation of the Minolta AF 75-300 F4.5-5.6 II lens I picked up recently in Oxfam.
