Get Me to the Church on Time

 

This chapel hall, circa 1231, is used for antique sales.

Sir Tiff is looking at the clocks, back on 8th May.

St. Katherine's Chapel, Ledbury, England.

 

Today Lisl is our guest at Vision and Verb, writing about Locked Churches.

I like the way that you captured the different colours of light here Ginnie... will have to visit Lisl and V&V....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly...on both, Peter.

Ginnie, Does looking at clock helps with stopping time? ;-)
If yes, count me in...
Ginnie Hart: HA! If it doesn't have a minute hand, it does seem stopped in its path, Anyes, doesn't it. smile
A wonderful study, Ginnie. Beautifully composed and lit.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Graeme. I still remember the place even though we were there for just a couple minutes.

I think that codger might be up to no good, Ginnie...is he stuffing a couple of antiques inside his overcoat...
Ginnie Hart: ...and right near the exit for a quick get-away! You do have a point, Ray.
What a beautiful setting to display antiques. I love the window, and the light. I thought at first it was old glass in the window, but now I'm not certain. Do you know?
Ginnie Hart: I can't say for sure about the glass, Linda, but I'd like to believe it's very old. It was a delightful setting for these antiques.

Beautifully balanced Ginnie to give light and detail to both the inside and the outside. Look a beautifully peaceful place smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind Geoff. It was a delightful place that I can still "feel."

It was quite a surprise to see this antique sales in the church. A beautiful setting. I love the light and Sir Tiff, did a great job showing us around.
A wonderful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Sir Tiff knew exactly what we'd want to see everywhere we went. What a brother! Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA.

This building is a very old structure and thank heaven it is being used for something sensible if not for worship Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I so agree, Chris. What a waste when such historic structures sit empty and useless!
This is a beautiful composition! the lighting is stunning! I'm afraid quality time pieces may be a dying art.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I'd like to think some of us will bring those pieces back into vogue!

Oh, a church window with curtains - great! I never saw this - and a wonderful warm, glittering lighting - my first thought was: This person looks like a certain Chris, lost in his own world of browsing- did he find and buy a gem of clock?
I must think of Netherlands where so many churches have been converted to bookshops, hotels, even supermarkets and discos -a sad development we know in our country, too, unfortunately!
Later I'll read Lisl's writing - that's very fine!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, a church window with curtains, Philine. It may be a first for me. It was a great place for browsing, which we all did. Nothing was purchased, mind you, but lots was seen. smile

Even from behind, he looks a true connoisseur, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HA! You can pick him out anywhere, Lisl, can't you! smile
this is the kind of church that I would attend with my eyes wide open Ginnie. Faith time, I would say!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Indeed, Juan Carlos. Sad, but true for so many.

Was there a sale on clocks
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Vintage, I have no clue. I rather doubt it. smile
Hoping to find a miniature bench with a clock in it perhaps?
Ginnie Hart: HAHA! If anyone could find it, it would be Tiff. smile
That's a great window... (minus the curtains though.)
Ginnie Hart: HA! Those curtains really are strange there, Jacquelyn, aren't they!
not easy the light conditions, but your result is splendid Ginnie, your shadows management is perfect!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fabrizio. Grazie.
I've worked at entique fairs in English churches - they are wonderful places to be for both sellers and buyers, if at times a bit inconvenients with uneven floors, no power points, etc.
Ginnie Hart: So you know exactly what this was like, Sheila! All the ambient lighting was fabulous. Thanks.
That window sill looks totally impractical Ginnie, I could not imagine any clocks resting there.
Ginnie Hart: I know exactly what you mean, Chad. A bit too precarious for my taste.
the dark tones make it impressive
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Chantal. There was wonderful ambient lighting inside.
So many different lights here. Love the shine on the brass candlesticks. I am impressed with the thick window wells. A very nice setting.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. I can still remember the feeling of the place, as though it were yesterday.

aaaah hahaha MONEY CHANGERS!!! Tho it does make a pretty picture doesn't it? smile
Ginnie Hart: This is the chapel hall, Elaine, and not the chapel itself, in case that makes a difference?! smile Thanks.
Lovely intimist light !
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. It was indeed a very intimate feel.
Nice photo!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Victoria. Tack.
Time to get a new watch?
Time for us to watch Sir Tiff?

What else did you see in Ledbury?
Ginnie Hart: Time to pat attention to time, LC, that's all. HA. Ledbury is a delightful city, full of timber/Tudor construction. I'm working on those images as we speak for my other blog. smile
What a fine way to use a corner of the church, I guess Chris was interested in these, he strikes me as the sort of person who might be.
Ginnie Hart: I don't think this was the chapel per se, Brian, but the hall next door? I'm not sure. But Chris strikes me as a person who is interested in almost everything! It's good to see you back.

It seems that we both are visiting and exploring churches on our blogs! smile

Great capture of the light.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Sue, you're right. I love these old churches of Europe. I never grew up around anything like them, of course! Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: HA! He does get around, Louis, doesn't he. smile

I love the mood of your photo. It also looks like a very interesting place to visit smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. We were on our way to Wales that day and this was our first stop. Well worth the while because of all the timber buildings there!
