rectory_garden_2976x1900_.jpg


Sat in the churchyard to eat my boiled egg today.

Hello Martin,

I am curious about the building at the back of the graveyard, what is it and what was it originally designed to be? If it were a residence I would expect the doors to the outside world to be on the lower level. Perhaps a stables with a feed store on the upper floor.

It has a chimney, so internal fireplaces, so perhaps not a stables.

Regards,

Pierre

PS: I very much enjoy this thread and love looking at the pictures.

Further to the previous discussion, apparently this building is called the Outstout:

"The rectory garden contains the “Outstout”, a three-storey building constructed by the then Rector in 1728 as a retreat and study. A shell-shaped gazebo nearby dates from the same time."

Which means there is a lower floor below this view. No explanation of what caused the listing chimney, but here are some other details (the 1904 date is a later restoration):



Martin.

Just posted by a member on the Fuji X100 forum:

"Now that I have entered my 86th year the carrying of my X-T2 kit is beginning to be somewhat of a burden. From this forum I began to see where my future in photography lies. Today I wander the mountains and valleys of East Tennessee, Western North Carolina and North Georgia with my X100V and photography is a joy once more."

I hope I can do the same when I'm 86. Certainly my X100F will be with me.

Suspect I'm going in the same direction. For the last 15 years, I've tended to use a DSLR for stuff with not much walking and a good compact for walks. I replaced the compact with a Nikon Z50 mirrorless camera about 2 years ago.

Recently I've been having problems with holding and operating cameras due to a neurological condition affecting the right hand and arm, in particular wrapping the fingers around the grip and then being able to operating the shutter. So I invested in a Nikon Zfc, virtually identical to the Z50 but in a traditional form factor like a Nikon FM2 film camera. No grip! Problem largely solved.

I bought it with a 28mm f2.8 lens, 42mm equivalent in 35mm terms, which I'll stick with. I find it a very nice focal length to use and very good results. I can configure the camera so that it gives the results I want but needing very little fiddling with in use. Very like a film camera in use. Simple but effective is what I need. With traditional controls it's very like a Fuji X100.

As a former photographer I got used to lugging around heavy medium format gear. The advent of DSLR's meant I could downsize (weight) a bit but over the years they have become heavy and burdensome. As I no longer do it professionally I'm selling my DSLR kit and lenses and getting a full frame compact with one zoom lens, and a flash, and my tripod obvs, oh and the reflector... and maybe an external mic for video, and maybe a superwide manual lens, and poss a fast prime shot telephoto. I'll end up dragging round 25kg of stuff again won't I?

Highley SVR. Strange to see the station deserted on a sunny Sunday today. Services restart in April.

We lived in Arizona from 82 to 89 and I had to take everyone who visited up to the canyon :) I think photos tend to give a better sense of it than actually being there. Its enormous size and complexity make it difficult to take in. The odd thing about it is you can't see it from any distance. You only begin see it as you walk right up to the edge.

When I arrived at the South Rim I stopped at the first car park and took afew paces and found myself at the edge. Shock!!! nothing has had the same impact. Impossible to over-hype.
