A cheesy Alice in Wonderland imitation

It’s a bit of a shameful natural impulse of mine to give dull and wintry colours that poetic touch by quickly turning them into moody black and white photos. Yet, I can’t help but see that cold April day in Cambridge with different eyes, now that the photos have that special something that completely ignores the freezing and fairly miserable weather…

But it wasn’t all bad. Having a good stroll through the colleges and along the canal was nice and scenic and everything but the actual highlight could by no chance have been predicted. While eating lots of strawberries, blueberries and chocolate muffins fresh from the market stalls, we suddenly came across an open gate. Whoop, that’s how all adventures from childrens’ books start, right!? Right, so we did the only clever thing, went right through it and felt as if Lewis Carroll had drafted this encounter.

In front of us was a huge and rather abandoned private park with a small house that was framed with ivy and had a view over the river. Luckily, its doors were open. As if that wouldn’t be perfect enough, we came there in the middle of the Easter Break and were therefore not running the risk of being identified as cheeky intruders. After shamelessly indulging in the day of some true treasure hunters, we sadly took the coach back to London, although I’m sure Mr. Carroll had another ending in mind.
