Photography | The Manor House
We went to lots of places to take photographs on Sunday. This is the Manor House at West Bromwich. I took this with my Nikon D3200. There was a falconry display in the ground, but the shots of the birds weren’t so good.
It was a little more overgrown around the moat, the flowers have died off now. It was still a nice scene though. The weather was unsettled, quite sunny, but lots of cloud.
This is the Great Hall. I obviously had to use the flash and the pictures are reasonably good. A ‘Speedlight’ flash would have been better. This was where the whole household would have lived and slept in medieval times.
There is a sort of gallery overlooking the Great Hall, I forget what it’s called. That’s where the more important family members would have had more privacy as the house was enlarged.
I think this was the chapel, you can see some signs left from when the building was a pub. The house is now owned by the local authority and run as a museum.
The sword and long bows on the table weren’t genuine, but does it matter? The beams have been painted black too, but it has a medieval look and feel.
This bar was a modern addition when it was turned into a pub. I like it, but I suppose it is a little out of place. I don’t think everything should be genuine, but it should look genuine.
