Ickworth House 6/7

On the way home from our Suffolk holiday we called in at Ickworth House, a National Trust property just outside Bury St.Edmunds.

 

There are some fine marble busts in one of the corridors and just about enough light to catch photos of them by holding my camera very firmly.

Nothing like being set in stone

The great & the good: well held sir!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Chris.
You did well, no one would know the difficulties you had with this one.
Brian Walbey: Yes they were hand held, no flash and in a very dull shadowy corridor Sheila.
I thought for a second you might be taking the mickey out of certain peoplegrin
Brian Walbey: What me Bill, never!
Good images,the one thing they have all have in common are rather large conks. I have seen paintings of prize cattle from that era stretched way out of proportion so wondered if these splendid Roman noses were a similar thing.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin. Perhaps bid noses were the fashion in their daysmile
Sad that all three of them lost their arms, isn't it? Quite a coincidence that!
Brian Walbey: Do you know Tom I'd neber even noticed, do you think I should clone some in smile
Great shots Brian of some very serious looking chaps.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim.
If only they could talk, interesting series.
Brian Walbey: They would have plenty of stories to tell I bet John.
