Wedding daze

This is the first of a set of images of places that mean something to me, and in taking them I have had to revisit those places and also go back to the time that they are connected with. It is very self indulgent, but it’s my blog and I can do almost what I want. So to start, this image is the most worked on I’ve posted and that reflex how much I wanted it here. This is the church I got married in and is here because I have so many special places that me and Caz have shared that to pick one was impossible, so this is a symbol for all of those. I love history and when visiting places I try to imagine what it was like in the past, it’s the same with these places as I visited each one it was like watching a film of the past rolling before my eyes, I could see Caz and me standing on those steps, in the later shots I could fill the spaces with people now long gone and voices now long silent, sometimes this blog takes me places I’d forgotten. Great isn’t it.

You are off to a brilliant start for your week! Super shot, love the focal point and processing. Looking forward to more :0).

Um, to be fairly honest, the first thing I thought when I saw this picture was, "Holy crap! That is frickin' fantastic." Yeah, that's pretty much all I have to say.

What a stunning building-- I get so jealous of the history that surrounds you in Europe!

Beautifully written to accompany such a striking evocative image. I agree revisiting images stirs the memories, good and bad.
