    Default 3 Churches & a gatehouse


    2 more St Marys and a St Andrew.
    All in grey scale - see how that goes down
    1st up a rather disappointing St Mary, Tilney-cum-Islington. Drove past it and decided to have a look
    Not really worth the bother. The tower is bricked up and the door has a really hefty lock on it.

    Next up St Mary Appleton
    Quite pretty - A Saxon round tower with gothic arches tacked on

    On the way to the next church I came across this The gatehouse to Hillingdon Hall
    The main house was about 80 yards behind this and had people in it otherwise I would have jumped the wall
    Never mind....

    Then on to St Andrews Bircham Tofts
    This is a church

    Inside is better but there is no obvious way up the tower... poo

    Wouldn't it be nice if more churches had an entrance like this

    And no funny colours to be seen.

    Beautiful and very sensitive images.

    Now a serious question - Nanook asks for a reposting in natural colours and this type of request always makes me wonder why people nowadays cannot accept or interpret B & W or Grey Scale images. I am of an age where in my younger days, illustrations in magazines, books etc, were mainly black and white. Also in my use of photography, both work wise and personal, monochrome images have always played an almost equal part alongside colour images. I have no trouble in looking at these images and seeing a good colour rendition also. Admittedly this 'ability' is based on a full understanding of how the colours of the spectrum are rendered by panchromatic films and also extending this into the technology behind digital sensor imaging..

    So is this just an age thing - Does the lack of monochrome images in the modern day visual diet hinder younger people from practising something that I take as second nature?

    I don't know if it's an age thing but I do think digital colour is over rated. Since the demise of film and the subsequent mass acceptance of mobile phones with cameras everyone is a ferkin photographer. However it's the CPU taking the photograph not the person. F stops, pushing and pulling, EV, colour meters, reciposity, cross curves, focal length, depth of field - no one learns this stuff anymore. The camera & Photoshop do the hard bit so the "photographer" can just point & shoot & delete until they get bored. I didn't do these in colour. My camera has a deep red filter over the sensor and reacts to infra red & ultra violet only. The poor little CPU then puts colours to the data coming in from the sensor - hence the blues & oranges in most of my pictures. I like it because my eyes see far more that my brain will translate into images and digital I/R messes with my perception - keeps me open to unusual possibilities like monochrome, selenium toning, reticulation, sepia etc.
    When I ran a C41 colour negative line in a lab I used to sneak colour transparancy film through it. It messed up the chemistry so I didn't do it often but the results from printing that were stupendous. http://amberstudios.deviantart.com/art/Girl-255004090
