Triptych Week 5/7

THE BIG CELEBRATION

Back in the Autumn of 2011 our church celebrated the centenary of major alterations to the building with a weekend of events within the fellowship. For the Sunday morning service some of the Deacon’s and other members of the church dressed in clothing suitable to 1911, a delight for me as a photographer, and this is a triptych of just three of them. You can find more of my photos of this occasion here together with a few other images taken at our church, can you spot Maureen in some of them?

 

Ten of my images have been selected for projection at the annual exhibition of the Leicester and Leicestershire Photographic Society this weekend.  The image below, 'Under Repair' was awarded a 'Commended' distinction in the class for images taken at the Great Central Railway, to say I am quite pleased would be an understatement.

This is quite the collection of 1911 clothing Brian... i think that the mustache on the right is fake... imo...smile

Congratulations for your commendation on 'Under Repair'... it deserves recognition....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes the one on the right is a fake for sure. Thanks for your comment about my exhibition image.

I love it when otherwise sensible people dress up - great stuff Brian!
Brian Walbey: Those who dresses up really did look good.
Great faces!!!! That mustache can't be real!
Congrats on your commendation!
Brian Walbey: No it isn't a real tache.
BRAVO to you on all counts, Brian. You are a distinguished gentleman in our midst. Congratulations.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, unlike nearly all my fellow club members I like to share my pictures with others so sometimes I strike lucky and get some accepted for public display, otherwise why bother to take them in the first place, and there's nobody epitomises that thought than yourself with your blog.

Well done again, Brian. I imagine the subjects will be delighted, too
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, yes the subjects have seen these photos, a full set of the Flickr photos are in the church archive.

Your three folk stepping back in time seem to be enjoying their new personas!

Always nice to get a bit of approval!
Brian Walbey: They did enjoy the occasion Mike. Thanks for the other comment, it is nice to get some pictures accepted once in a while.
Congratulations for your commendation Brian! You deserve it.
I really like your triptych.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard on both counts.
Those are wonderful portraits, Brian. Not a pore to be seen. Congrats on having 10 images chosen by the club.
Brian Walbey: Thanks on both counts Mary.
a little back in time, jolly people
Brian Walbey: Yes loads of people dressed up, the most unusual congregation seen in our church for many a while.u

well done on the exhibition Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sarah.
Well done Brian, looking at all the photos you must have a lot of fun at your church
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin. it was certainly fun that day, our Minister done the first half of the morning service in a really old-fashioned manner, all fire and brimstone, and then the second half was in the more modern lighter fashion.
I spotted supermodel Maureen in the set of pictures. All very good Brian and well done on the exhibition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, she does all sorts at the church to be honest.

Crikey Brian, I thought that was Tiff on the left at first.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps Bob, seen here, could act as a body-double for the one and only Lord Tiff of Bathampton.
And they played the part well, too - fine shots Brian.
Congratulations for the recognition! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, it was a good morning to remember in the history of the church.

What a wonderful way to commemorate the 100 years.
Fine set of portraits, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.

Beautiful portraits and I saw the pictures in the link.
You did a great job and it shows you had a great time.
Congratulations on your selected pictures smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks on all counts Astrid, that Sunday morning at church was definitely one to remember.
Nice shots, I wonder why style from the past always seems more pleasing, perhaps the inbuilt nostalgia smile
Brian Walbey: I guess there was a lot of nostalgia for the older members of the church fellowship.
I like how you've book-ended the lady with the two gents, Brian. Nicely done! Congratulations on your well deserved exhibition and award.
Brian Walbey: I thought it looked with Hilary, our Ministers wife in the middle of these two gents, it would have looked wrong with her at one end.

For a moment, I though I see Sir Tiff! Phew, shock over smile Glad to see people entering into the spirit. I'm looking forward to something from the 1970s; I'm still wearing clothes of that period smile

Well done on getting a judge who knew what he was doing!
Brian Walbey: Chad also made the mistake of thinking I had Tiff on this image. It was a fine morning at church that day, I seem to recall we had a nice lunch elsewhere in the building after the service, our church is good at that sort thing smile
Congrats! > and >>> three great characters.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
