Claydon Church 3/7

All Saints church at Claydon has quite a bright interior and though the church is of interest as simple 14th century architecture, the prime reason for visiting is to see the wonderful collection of monuments to the Verneys and the Giffords. These are profuse, and adorn every part of the church. 

 

Thanks to all those of you who commiserated with my comment last Friday about my current Vertigo problem, I have, unfortunately, been living with Vestibular balance problems for 25+ years, which is why I don’t drive much these days. There is no cure for this problem as such but my gut feeling is that, following my Cataract operation, the big difference between the way each of my eyes now sees the world in different perspectives is disturbing my ‘already delicate’ balance system at times, and I hope my new spectacles will ‘level’ things up. In the meantime I am reading your comments every day and catching up with your postings on my tablet, and am actually at my PC typing this, which is at least one step nearer normality, although I won’t spend too long at my keyboard as yet, but intend being back 'full time' very soon.

I think your balance was in good shape when you made this shot, Brian.

I hope your new glasses are the goods!
Oh this is so bright and airy inside!! I love that!

Good luck with your new specs - I hope they will ease your troubles!
You had a good balance when shooting this beautiful image Brian.
I trust your new spectacles will sort out your problem.
Photography probably helps your problem then. Everything was working fine for this shot. I hope nausea does not accompany your vertigo.

Ah ,the vertigo. My father suffers from it, but gets around quite good. It does become worse when other conditions, e.g. blood pressure are suffered. I know he uses pills to more or less keep it in check.

Seems to me the Verneys and Giffords built a church to house the forefather effigies. I like the bright interior.
Hopefully things will gradually improve Brian.

Glad to hear that there is some relief in sight (no pun inteeded) for your problem and hope that before long you feel able to resume your activities here. I'm certainly guilty of spending too long in front of computer but expect that to chnage when I retire im June. It sounds like that the Verneys and the Giffords were well thought of.
It is a bright church. Sorry to hear about your issues, computers must be the worst thing for your eyes, go easy I'm sure things will improve.

This is a fabulous picture.
Brian, I do hope that the new spectacles will make the difference and will take a way the Vertigo problem... I am so sorry to hear about your problem. Take care and all the best.
Brian Walbey: I've grown to live with this problem in general but last week it flared up into the worst it's ever been. The Doctor has doubled my medication for a while so perhaps that will help.
You poor thing, Brian. I had no idea you were dealing with this...till Astrid just told me. I knew I missed you for a reason. Let's hope they'll get everything figured out for you sooner than later! Hang in there.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, most people I know in my family and friends are aware I've got this ongoing problem, I've never really thought it was the sort of thing to keep on about on SC.but last week it was probably the worst it's been, I just thought I would tell you all why I would be absent for hopefully only a few days.
A fine church picture Brian. I hope the new glasses are a big help
this works for me very nicely, Brian. i like this quiet, small affair and the opportunity to view all the beauty in the plenty of illumination.
