Oxford Mail Camera Club snappers have been thinking about the old days.

This week they were given the nostalgic theme 'when I was little' and sent in a series of striking pictures on the subject.

Each week, camera club members are given a different theme and then post them on the Oxford Mail Camera Club Facebook page.

A selection of photos are then published each week in the Oxford Mail and then a winning image is selected.

This week's photos included images of conkers, a doll, a model train and a scrapbook.

Oxford Mail:

Some photographers do not always stick to the allocated theme and occasionally a photo that doesn't fit the theme is chosen as the photo of the week.

Although it is more likely that a photo following the theme will be chosen as the winner.

The club is a place for amateur snappers to share ideas and inspiration (and, of course, photos).

Photos posted on the page will be used in the Oxford Mail and their respective publications, websites and social media channels.

By posting pictures in the group, you are giving consent for publication.
