photoblog image St.John the Baptist, Royston

St.John the Baptist, Royston

I am still dipping in to the "Miscellaneous Folder" for a while to present some images, both old and new, on a variety of subjects unless anything alse comes along in the meanwhile.

In my Monochrome Mania series earlier this year I showed you an image of the church I went to as a child which looked like this http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/MONOCHROME_MANIA_-_PART_2__%A3%21%3Bhash%A3%21%3B15_/

Recently I went back to Royston for the weekend and done a somewhat hurried session of photographing the church inside and outside.  This was one of the more interesting images although the weather wasn't kind to me at the time.

Works for me, Brian.
I like the windy feel of the grassy stuff in the garden.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, the garden is the local park which edges on to the churchyard.

It looks charming Brian: nothing like the architecture I'm used to
Brian Walbey: Good old East Anglian church Chris, it is a nice church.
This looks as if the church is in a park. Is the outside flint?
Brian Walbey: The park edges on to the churchyard Bill with no fence between the two. The outside of the church is finished in flint which is quite common on East Anglian churches, especially as you move nearer and in to Norfolk.

looks very windy Brian, looks to be a beautiful church
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, it was a bit windy that day but I had to make the best of it. It is a lovely church, very square if you know what I mean.

Not the sort of planting you normally associate with churchyards - looks more like a municipal park! Interesting looking church.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid. The park edges on to the churchyard with no fence between the two which is rather nice actually, perhaps I will show a different picture one day and you will see how it looks.
trifids....
another nice shot
use of "props" making it a strong option
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, I took quite a few but this particular framing just seemd to work.
I like the perspective through the plants here Brian. Fine capture!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, the plants just seemed to make a nice frame.
I like this setting for that splendid looking church Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Janet.
That is a rather charming design of church.
Brian Walbey: It's a nice church Chad, as Pevsner would say, "Standing four square" because that is how it is.
Excellent facade with the desaturated look.

Kind of poetic in deed!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much for your comment. Brian
