MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 2 #15

St.John the Baptist Parish Church, Royston

Like most children growing up in the 40's and 50's I went to Sunday School, and in later years became a choirboy at this church where my Dad also rung the bells for the services. Once it got to the 60's other "delights" meant I left the church and this is one of only 2 pictures I have of what is a very nice building.

One day, hopefully at the end of March, when I am back at friends in Royston, I will go back to the church and do a "proper job" as you know I like photographing such places.

This is the final picture in part 2 of this lengthy series so, as before, I will not post in this series next week in order to give you a break, but I am posting a couple of miscellaneous pictures over the weekend and a selection of "twiddled" pictures next week before continuing with the final part after that. Have a great weekend.

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)

Its a quality scan, Brian.

I like the natural frame created by the curving tree branch, too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I will look to see if the tree is still there when I get to photo the place again.

The days I spent in church back then, Brian, more than make up for the days I don't go now! HA! But to go back with the camera would definitely be a reason to return!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I'm going to twist Maureens arm for us to make an early start when we return in March, mind you I hate getting up early these days myselfsmile

This is a lovely composition Brian: I like it
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Chris.
I remember Sunday school in the fifties, but only from the other side of the fence, we used to pass it when going to play in the park of a Sunday afternoon.

Nice picture, well framed Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Les, I didn't get a lot of choice in the matter about going to Sunday School, hasn't done me any harm I don't think.

A superb composition Brian. I like the tree framing! Great scan job.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, unfortunately I can't get such good slide scans from my machine, it is one of these with the bit in the lid of the flatbed.
