A Look Inside Shugborough House 4/7

This is taken on one of the landings on the first floor at Shugborough Hall and I took it mainly because I liked the general style of it and there are some beautiful items in the built in display case in the wall.

I like the composition here, Brian.

Umh...what lands on the landings...it looks a little small to accommodate an airbus?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. It's big enough for the French Maid to walk along with Breakfast at 9 am.every morning.
You know - this doesn't really have a "museum" feel to it - all your photos make it seem like it's still lived in (except for the ropes of course)
Brian Walbey: There is a private family apartment within the house I believe, but I know what you mean Elizabeth, it isn't full og really old antique sort of stuff.
I am enjoying your guided tour of the Shugborough House very much Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to hear that Peter.

Just look at that delicate bannister
Brian Walbey: Yes it's really nice isn't it.
Fine quality glitz ...
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Richard, we were really pleased with the inside of this house, not quite so formal as some of them.
Glad you visited our local des res. it's time I returned there to check out improvements to developing areas such as the walled garden.
Brian Walbey: I guess it is close to you come to think of it. There was quite a lot of work going on in the Walled Garden when we were there.

This has a much more welcoming feel than many stately homes, Brian - did you sense that?
Brian Walbey: I did sense that Lisl, I guess in part it's because Patrick Lichfield lived there until he died a few years ago so it hasn't been left in a centuries old time warp in recent times.

I like the bannister
Brian Walbey: It's really nice isn't it.
I expect the kids had great fun daring each other to swing on the chandelier Brian.
Brian Walbey: Surely the kids of the aristocracy would too well behaves for that sort of thing Chad!
good composition
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.

Must need an army of feather duster wielding trustees!
Brian Walbey: I guess all these places do Mike. Our local TV featured the winter cleaning team at one of our local NT properties, that's when these places get a really good going over, while they are shut.
This really is a splendid location Brian, enjoying the series!
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Fred, thanks for your comments.
Nice warm & differing light in this Brian; an enjoyable series smile
Brian Walbey: The whole house is full of light Martin, I'm pleased you are enjoying the series.
The banister is so beautiful and delicate Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Richard, a lovely piece of artisanship.
I like the railing, Brian. Good composition.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is really nice isn't it.

A pleasing and somehow satisfying composition. I can't make my mind up whether it might be better cropped at the bottom of the railings though.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid. The only thing with your crop is that it would take out the lead in up the staircase, although having said that there is a decorative cord across which technically a judge would say stops one from moving into the subject area. Sorry this sounds a bit technical, too many years in camera clubs!
Great balance of light again Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John. I've just checked the Exif for this and it is hand held at 1/15th.with no flash so I think I done quite well with this one.
