"What's a Little More Rain" - Ray Hood, 2000

My colleague Richard -- see yesterday's post for two of his photos -- went outside this afternoon to take some more photos of the Thames near our office. Personally, I'm not sure that the river levels are much, if any, lower than yesterday. But at least the situation seems to have stabilized.

Here are a few of Richard's new photos. You can click on any of them for a full-sized version.

The Head of the River pub (which I photographed yesterday) is on the right of this photo...and Folly Bridge is in the background.

This is part of the grounds of Christ Church, now covered by the Thames.

Richard wasn't wearing the right footwear to wade through the river water which has invaded the the towpath.

I guess it's a good thing that Christ Church put out the "no mooring" sign in this area, given its current condition...

To me, this is one of the worst-looking shots. It appears that it wouldn't take too much more water in the river for these buildings to become flooded.

Thanks so much, Richard, for sharing these with me so that I could put them on Lord Celery this evening!

Thanks for the photos. We were wondering how Oxford fared. Found some on Flickr too, but it's better to see ones from people we know--even if we know each other only through our blogs.
