Alphabet Photography Project: G is for Glass

Camellia HouseA large proportion of glass in architecture, whether old style or modern, is often fascinating. Here, we are back again to my beloved Wollaton Park, Nottingham. This is the view looking up at the roof of the Camellia House, set in the grounds. One of the earliest cast iron glasshouses of its kind, it was built in 1827. It has recently been extensively restored, and is still used for its original purpose.
Buildinds such as this one provide a wonderful display of shape and line – a photographer’s paradise!

This post continues my contribution to the Alphabet Project:

Alphabet Photography Project: C is for Cedar

C is for CedarIn common with many photographers, I find trees fascinating, and interesting to photograph, and cedars particularly so. Here, in the grounds of Wollaton Hall, Nottingham, just one or two of the cedars of Lebanon, planted in 1588 (yes, the year of the Spanish Armada!) remain alive and standing, still giving off their characteristic scent on a warm day.

My Sunday Photo: 16 August 2015

MSP150816I love the challenge: How do you make a photo say ‘rain’ in an inspiring way? It isn’t easy. This shot was taken as evening was drawing in, and the rain had not long started. The old buildings (once stables, with accommodation for grooms and other staff) seemed to combine with the weather and time of day to give a moody, but intriguing effect.

Monday Mobile Week 12: A Touch of the Sun

Well… it’s really week one for me, because I haven’t joined in with this before. But my last ┬áSilent Sunday picture was actually inspired by this passing shot a few days before:

OK, so DSLR quality it isn’t. But the picture was captured in a few seconds. The ‘best’ camera is always the one you have with you. I didn’t actually realise at the time how much atmosphere this shot would convey.

If you haven’t already, have a look at the other contributions to this meme, here. (The list is at the end of the post, after those lovely pumpkin pictures.)
