photoblog image A Stroll At Calke Abbey #5

A Stroll At Calke Abbey #5

Returning from the Walled Garden by a roundabout route through the woodland to one side of the house this is is an extensive view of the East side which also gives a nice side-on aspect of the pillars at the front.

 

This weeks postings are only a short idea of what Calke Abbey can offer, some time in the future I will give you a much more extensive visit to this lovely property.

 

More details can be found on the National trust website here


I posted my Dudley pictures last week before I processed this one of these two old fellows who were "propositioned" by Mr.Trim for some pictures.  Here is my version which I might enter in a "Candid" competition at my Camera Club shortly.  Thanks to Les for the instructions on how to post pictures in the narative part of the display.

Strewth, Brian...the secondary image competes too successfully with the primary...

[grin]
Brian Walbey: One thing for sure, these two guys, characters that they are, will never live in a great house like this Ray.
Great old building - very nice! I like your candid shot of the old characters!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Elizabeth.
the facade and the side really emphasis the solid construction. those tall windows make me wonder how high the ceiling would be inside?
Brian Walbey: These sort of houses always have very high ceilings Ayush, especially on downstrairs rooms such as the Dining Room, the lounges, the Library and so on.

Great wide-angle shot of this structure, Brian.

Now, do you suppose you can teach me how to upload an image? I was successful in loading the YouTube but could NOT manage an imgae, UGH. What's the secret? (I have Firefox and it tells me I can't copy and paste!)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. I will forward on to you the email instructions Les sent to me and Chris which I have used to get this picture into place.
These two certainly attracted a lot of attention. I only photographed his hat!
Brian Walbey: I took a chance to shoot this on the back of Richard doing all the talk just like everyone else Bill.

Did the shutterchance gang pay these guys they have appeared on lots of sites lol
Brian Walbey: We were all queued up in front of them at the Fish and Chip shop whilst Richard chatted them for a photo so we all took the opportunity to take one as well.
This is some building Brian, and I like the angle of this one, as well as the great color.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is and very interesting inside Frances. I am doing a series on that in a while.

These tow chaps seem to be getting very cheesed off with all the photographic attention (they probably loved it secretly)
Brian Walbey: They didn't seem to mind us all shooting off shots Mike. Richard told them they would soon be seen worldwide on the net.
These two have become shutterchance stars Brian. Great shot of the house. Huge isn't it.
Brian Walbey: It is a big house Janet, you will see the inside ina few weeks time.
Looking forward to seeing what Calke Abbey can offer in the near future. I love the structure of the building. Excellent capture! Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sue. I will be doing a series on the inside and also two more on the garden and the church, oh and perhaps another on the parkland and wildlife, it is that sort of place, lots to photograph.
An imposing building Brian, glad the instructions worked as well.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed, yes I have posted an extra picture on Monday as well, but this is a sad little story from within our family as you will see.
A strong & sturdy looking building, Brian.

The two gentlemen sitting on the bench seem to have captured the attention of quite a few of the photographers at the meet up. I like how you were able to show the partial printing of the memorial dedication on the back of the bench.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine building Beverly. I, just like everyone else, couldn't avoid shooting these two, it's all thanks to Richard Trim chatting to them.
They don't build them like this any more ...
Brian Walbey: They certainly don't Richard, it is a good place to visit, a lot to do.

Ray sums this up for me.. chalk and cheese! The side view is not so impressive as the front but then that's probably true of me, too!
Brian Walbey: And all of us Alan! It is a very four-square sturdy sort of building, I am going to do a series on the inside later this year.
Nice shot of the side of the building Brian.... it is also as well frame as the front.... i like your candid shot of the two old gent on the benchsmile

Could you copy me in on the instructions that you are going to send to Ginnie please.... the only thing that i have been able to post in the narrative section since the last upgrade are thumbnails....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks and thanks Peter. The instructions should be with you by now, best of luck.
Cool shots Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much John.
I've enjoyed your Calke Abbey pix Brian. I just don't get to see buildings like this here.
* Can you also send me the info as well... I'm still having no luck with posting pix in the narrative. * Thanks!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn, Calke is a good place to visit and only 20 minutes from us. You should have the other details by now.
