Laycock Abbey

A weekend visit to Lacock Abbey was an interesting excursion, especially as it was once owned by William Henry Fox Talbot, the inventor of the "Calotype" photography process and the first person to produce a photographic negative. The oldest negative in existence is of an Oriel window at Laycock Abbey. This is my image of that exact window at Lacock:



Not quite the atmosphere of Fox Talbot's image!

More of the Abbey:

The main frontage



Two Tudor ladies (one assured me she was Anne Bolyn - complete with her head sown back on):



A view from the grounds:



The great Hall:



The Blue Parlour:



A gallery:



The Cloisters, people "Snaphealed" out:



And a couple of visitors:

Golden Eagle



Gyrfalcon



E-M5 plus Leica 14-150mm for all but the birds (M75-300mm)

David

Re: Laycock Abbey

Fox Talbot framed the window tighter, I think I prefer your version.

I think they were a couple of NT volunteers who liked dressing up and posing for old photographers like me!

Well poor old Fox Talbot only had one lens to work with, this was taken with the ED 7-14mm - a slight advantage!
