The B&W Photography Project Week 42 with PODCast and this week I’m looking at stonework with you. I love castles, they’ve always fascinated me and I’m always on the look out for interesting stonework.
I’m forever fascinated by the stonework in castles, churches and cathedrals. The detail and precision of a bygone age. The skills that must have been involved in creating these fortresses of worship and war is just amazing. Well, it is to me anyway.
On a recent visit to Kenilworth Castle I was in my element, wandering through the ruins, imagining what each room would once have looked liked, thinking of light streaming through windows that are no longer there. Wondering what stories the walls could tell. Who was involved in making this archway, how long did it take, who got to look through the grille?
