photoblog image Blythburgh Church, Suffolk

Blythburgh Church, Suffolk

One of the most famous churches in East Anglia is Holy Trinity, Blythburgh in Suffolk.

It is a large church with lots of windows which makes it feel very light and airy. This picture is a scan from a very old slide, taken probably in the 70's on my trusty old Praktica. It is interesting to note that the crucifix on the altar seems to be missing part of itself on the left hand side.

It is well worth looking at the website for this church where there is lots of information and a whole collection of photos, even better is to visit this church if you are ever in the area.

I've been here Brian: it's lovely
Brian Walbey: I guessed you probably had been here Richard, it's a delightful church in a very nice position if memory serves me correct.

Like the shadows Brian.
very nice.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, the shadows work quite well don't they.
Lovely old church Brian...hooray for the old Practika...they were a great camera!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, and I've still got the old Practike as well, I used it for slides until quite recently. This is a lovely church Bill, well worth another visit if I get up to Suffolk again.

Love the contrasting light and dark tones
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, a shame this was a bit further down the East coast from where you went during your visit, I suspect you would have liked it.

I bet it is still exactly the same even after all these years. Lovely light coming in through the unseen windows.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: It is quite a tall church Ingrid with big windows most of which are plain glass and lots of light gets in. Thanks for your comment.

Superb atmosphere Brian. That screen is beautiful

What do you use to scan your slides? I'm looking for something to start putting our massive collection onto digital files, but don't know where to start.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Ellie. I used to use a Microtek Filmscan 35 neg.& slide scanner, this was done on that, but they didn't at the time release new drivers for XP, now of course they have. I went out and bought an HP Scanjet which has the neg./slide bit in the lid above the flatbed but IMHO it doesn't scan slides as well as a dedicated scanner. Hope that is of some help.
Really superb Brian. I like the light/shadow play!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, this church has large windows with plain glass so plenty of light gets in.
