Last weekend I took a trip to the West Country with Alistair to visit Bath and the pretty village of Lacock. Bath is full of Georgian spleandour with plenty of architecture and landscapes to provide interesting photo opportunities.
We arrived late on Friday evening and took a wander around the town, seeing some golden light on the Abbey and purple illuminations on some of the Georgian buildings.
The next morning we took a walk along the river into town from the hotel, looking for some geocaches on the way. It’s always an attractive stretch to watch for wildlife and colourful boats:
The afternoon was spent at the RPS looking at some successful Fellowship panels – all useful information for planning future projects. We had a great dinner in the Brunel Brasserie in town, where I found an excellent shot for week 47’s 50@50 image.
Having not visited Lacock in many years, it was great to go back and have a proper look around the house and museum, something I missed out on last time.
As I was walking round with my top spec digital camera, I thought how far photography has come in the last 170-odd years. I’m sure Fox Talbot, who was clearly at home with “new technology”, would have been delighted and astounded with what we can now achieve.

Notes: After a long walk around Bath today, we went to the Brunel Brasserie in the Royal Hotel for dinner. This stained glass was next to my seat at the table. I loved the way the Christmas lights beyond were distorted in its wibbly surface.
During a walk around Chelmsford this afternoon, we visited the Wharf Road graffiti wall again. There’s always something different to see every time I go.
