Closing Time... by vignouse

Closing Time...

...we - although Mrs S more than me - are on opening and closing duties at Paimpont Abbey this week. This is the view looking down the nave from the chancel just before I locked up for the night.

Looks more closed on black ;-))
We are studying composition techniques in our camera club online meetings. I have been looking through my own pictures for demonstrations. I find it interesting that my favorite shots usually follow some technique without even being conscious of using it. And those shots that just don't seem to work -well they don't follow. any. Of course, this is one of my favorite - leading line. But I have also noticed that some have a couple of techniques - there is also pattern and texture here as I see it. plus foreground interest and depth. I have asked the others to start reviewing their photos and seeing if they can see a technique they have unconsciously. And see if those they don't like just lack a composition style. It is interesting to study this. I guess I am coming late to the party.

Beautiful church. I remember going into open churches all the time in Europe when we were there, but I know of only a few here in U.S. where you can just walk into a church at any time. Most keep their doors locked except during service times.

@homeschoolmom Churches in large cities are normally only open if there is a team to ensure the safety of both visitors and the church. Paimpont Abbey is open 365 days a year and only staffed in the summer months when there is a peak of visitors.

A private moment with the Abbey to yourself, and having that undisturbed moment to take a shot. Nice one Richard.
