Different Views of Rhodes University

Here are some different views of Rhodes University, Grahamstown.

The original pictures were taken using my cheap phone camera and then reworked using WordFoto: Rhodes University and Grahamstown are the keywords.  These will have to change, of course, and I will need to do more pictures if we ever rename the University and city …..
