photoblog image Sandringham #3

Sandringham #3

Strictly speaking this is the front of Sandringham House with the entrance portico under which, no doubt, the royal carriages used to pull up to let their occupants out.

There is a drive on the other side of the right hand hedge but I preferred this angle with the lead in of the footpath through the picture.  Unfortunately I had to wait nearly 15 minutes to get this because a family of three decided to stand and chat completely oblivious of me standing there with a camera, as they do.

This is a lovely angle for the front Brian. Because of the rain we didn't walk out this far. Nice capture that brings back pleasant memories of the afternoon spent here.
I have been away due to computer problems, just trying to catch up today so no post.
Brian Walbey: I'm sorry you didn't get good weather on your visit here Aussie, long way for you to go back againsmile

Good capture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage, I was very patient getting this one.
I like the curve in the path to lead me nicely to the house. That hedge looks like like its been molded ina factory somewhere!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I guess some gardeners have to trim that hedge to perfection, wish they would come and do mine smile

I see the Queen is in residence as the flag is flying! The family probably saw you and decided to stay there just to irritate you!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Never thought it might be some of them Ingrid, perhaps I should have told them to xxxxxx off!
I like the sweep of the path up to the house, Brain.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, that was what attracted me to this angle on the house.

Lush green lawna and a sweeping path to the front door, very nicely composed Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, it is a bit of an obvious composition but it works quite well.
Worth the wait Brian. the house looks better from this angle and the path makes a good lead in...people? Clone the buggers out!
Brian Walbey: I just said to Ingrid perhaps it was some of "the family" chatting on the drive, definitely might have done what you suggest :-D
I really like the path leadind to the house. Wonderful shot Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, a natural composition I think for this shot.
fine composition there Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Tim.
I'm always impressed by this architecture - Nice composition too !
Brian Walbey: Thanks Zeb, next time we hope to go inside the house as well.
A fine looking edifice Brian. I must admit I didn't know it was a brick building
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, and there seems to have been several different sections, presumably built at different times.
It was worth the wait - lovely shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jim, one has to have the patience of a saint being a photographer I sometimes feel.
