The Story You know how you sometimes read about ‘the story behind a photograph’? Well this is the story behind this photo: The sheep facing the tree was counting to fifty. The others were supposed to hide, of course. But it was a hot day and there wasn’t a lot of enthusiasm for the game. One stood up and tried to encourage the others to get up and hide, but she wasn’t having a lot of success. They just looked at her, knowing they would have to make the effort when the sheep by the tree started to turn around. But not yet. Not yet.

Perhaps the punts ‘go with’ the Colleges.
