In recent years around this weekend the city council and university organises an evening of celebration ahead of Christmas.

Friday is the big evening, but this year I couldn't manage that so I went down on Saturday night to see what was going on.

Talking Maps Lightshow | A7 III and FE 28mm F2
The Tower of the Five Orders in the Old Quad of the Bodleian Library served as a backdrop to a projection of images from the Talking Maps exhibition

And then, "In GHOST CARIBOU, Thingumajig Theatre’s new night-time street act, giant illuminated creatures, part caribou, part spirit, roam a mystical world after dark, accompanied by a wild herdsperson."

Please forgive me if I include a couple from my Smartphone, which has a 'Nightscape' mode and ease of use that my A7 III can only aspire to ...

Lactolight | OnePlus 7T 26mm equiv. lens

7

University Church nave | OnePlus 7T 17mm equiv. lens

In my defence there is probably a Sony sensor at the heart of this, and to have three built-in lenses (17, 26 and 51mm equivalent) is boggling, to me. Nightscape mode takes a few seconds to capture and make a final image, rather like the Superior Auto mode on some Sony cameras.

Thanks for looking!
