OF course, Oxfordshire is the perfect place to find examples of the old rubbing shoulders with the new: we're home to one of the oldest universities in the world, a Medieval abbey or two and Saxon settlements next door to fusion labs and satellite start-ups.

But of course, this being Oxford Mail Camera Club, our members found much more interesting ways to meet this week's theme.

Like, for example, Ian White, who sent us a picture of an impatient piglet desperately trying to wake up his mum so they can play at Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park.

Or take William Law, who spotted a perfect opportunity to capture modernity juxtaposed with history in this brand-new heart defibrillator installed in an otherwise redundant old red village phone box.

Some people, meanwhile, used Oxfordshire's obvious old assets to great effect.

Abingdon original Ann Faulkner use her town's famous Medieval Abbey ruins to frame a shot of new spring growth nearby.

Becca Collacott, meanwhile, used the town's historic hotel.

She wrote alongside her picture: "With a history dating back to 1605, The Crown & Thistle on Bridge Street re-opened its doors in 2013, following a £1.8m restoration.

"This Grade II listed coaching inn comprises three individual buildings clustered around a cobbled courtyard, framed by 200-year-old wisteria.

"Having been sympathetically designed, many of the buildings’ original features, such as timber beams, open brickwork, and window frames that aren’t square, remain throughout the restaurant, extensive bar area, elegant function rooms and 18 boutique-style bedrooms."

Save the Oxford Mail a room.

One more photo this week that deserves special mention is one that will be close to all camera club hearts – Donna Cassettari's submission of cameras old and new.

Next week's theme is the number four. Happy snapping!
