Photographer's Note

Yet another picture from our "mini" Oxfordshire TE meeting courtesy of the kindness of Richard.

This was taken from the quadrangle just outside the main gate (or Proscholium) to the tower of the Bodleian Library of Oxford University. You can read about this library and its history in the very comprehensive notes here.

This statue here is that of William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke, Chancellor of the University 1617-30, cast by Le Seur to the design of Peter Paul Rubens.

I thought that the old bronze statue had a very proud demeanour, and he appeared to me to be very disappointed that everyone was ignoring him, especially the Japanese tourist with his camera who wasn't taking a picture of him!
