photoblog image Haworth 3/3

Haworth 3/3

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

You might recall me going into St.Michael and All Angel's Church at Haworth during our Yorkshire weekend and not getting the most friendly of welcomes despite the notice re photography inside.

This is the picture I was taking of the altar when the "jobsworth" interrupted me. As you can see it has a very interesting carving behind it and I would have liked more time to take some shots of that.

Actually, the whole scene is quite appealing, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Ray.
an interesting place. i really like the detail on the wall.
Brian Walbey: I did grab a quick shot of the wall but not really what I wanted.
impressive stone work, not so sure about the flock wallpaper on the alter, great colours and capture Brian
Brian Walbey: It does look a bit like wallpaper I agree Derek, very bold in colour.
But this is a beautiful shot which the church minister or council would be pleased to have - if they hadn't been so iffy about you taking it.
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't give it to them for all the puddings in Yorkshire Sheila!

A fine marble reredos Brian: probably mid Victorian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. I did manage to grab a shot of the reredos but then left without doing all I wanted.

That carving certainly does look interesting. There's always some jobsworth out to spoil one's fun!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: I would have liked to spend some time taking the carving in detail Ingrid, perhpas he thought I was a terrorist.

Very good I like the texture
Brian Walbey: Many thanks vintage.
The carved stonework is great,it seems bright and welcoming, very nice image Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, as I said it was the chrch people who were not welcoming despite the big notice at the back of the church.
Glad you were able to get this shot before you were interrupted, Brian. The detail & colors here are quite rich and wonderful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly.
Well captured Brian..but please catch the flowers before they fall!
Brian Walbey: I must admit I hadn't noticed the flowers leaning Ron, I'll leave that to the "Jobsworth." smile

Yes, there is a fine marble carving in this church- and probably the Bronte - sisters may have seen it- The LAST SUPPER- I admire the artist to have shown us all the 12 disciples and in the midth of them all Jesus on such a small space -but I cannot recognize Judas, perhaps the fourth person from the right side? "Am I the betrayer, Lord?"
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely carving philine, I would have liked more time to photograph it.
Very enjoyable stonework behind the alter Brian.
Brian Walbey: Lovely Chad, how I wish I could have spent more time photographing it.
Nicely shot, Brian - it's getting so that having a camera in one's hand is almost a symbol for "terrrorist"!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. Just a little man feeling important I think.

Exquisite carvings, Brian. Like you., I am attracted to them.
Brian Walbey: I just wish the "jobsworth" had cleared off and left me to it Alan.
Interesting detail shpt Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Les.
this is great..
really like it
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob.
This is such a lovely shot Brian. I love the way the bible, cross and candles are laid out and the drapes on the front are exquisite. The carving on the wall behind of the Last Supper is something I could spend many minutes looking at. Some folk are very touchy and offended about photos being taken in church, and others are happy to share God's house with anyone who visits. Shame you got a Victor Meldrew
Brian Walbey: It was the fact there is a big notice welcoming photographers at the rear of the church that made me annoyed Pam. I was very polite though and left quietly. I did get one quick shot of that lovely carving though.
