To become good at anything you need to gain experience and photography is no exception. I need more experience photographing events and I’ve done a few this year. This event was the opening of a Mindful Gifts shop in Darlaston. I wanted to show the shop and capture images of the event too. (more…)
St Pauls church
The church in the photograph is St Paul’s in Wood Green, Wednesbury, near to junction 9 of the M6 motorway. The church was built in 1874 and partly endowed by the Elwell family who owned the local forge. It’s built from red sandstone and in 1888 a spire, clock and a peal of bells were added. How do I know all this? I have a book published in 1908 full of facts from Victorian times about the town that I live in. The town was prosperous then and they built churches, the Town Hall (1871), Art Gallery (1891), parks, baths and much more.
