"From The Burrell"

By RonnieAG
These three images are for Kate {Irishkate} whom I had the pleasure of meeting yesterday when she visited the Burrell Collection in Pollok Country Park, Glasgow.
Kate is the the first fellow EPZ member that I have met and hopefully these images (taken yesterday) will remind her of her visit.

V !: The reconstructed Dining Room from Hutton Castle, Sir William Burrell's home at Berwick on Tweed.
V 2: European stained glass (15th. Cent. or later) of parrot.
V 3: Lithograph ...... "Potato Gatherers" (c. 1855) by Jean Francois Millet. An exhibition of his work is currently on display at the Burrell.

My thanks to all who commented on Dipsacus Fullonum........your attention is much appreciated.


PS. EXIF data refers to V 1 only.......R.

Three excellent captures Ronnie but V1 shows what craftsmen we had! The table and chairs will last for ever, not like the rubbish produced today, V1 for me.

Ronnie thank you so much dedicating these images to me.
It was a pleasure to meet you so briefly - surprised you haven't met anyone else
since you have such a 'fan base'. I detected a certain shyness.
Anyway these images are wonderful and I didn't see these today.
We saw a drawing room but not the dining room.
The stain glassed window is very beautiful - I must get back to see that.
I love the Millet - coming from a farming background and the land of 'tatties'.
I hope these images will encourage people to visit The Burrell and Pollock House.
Hope you've taken some more today, as there's obviously a lot to see.

Three rather good 'Documentary Photograph's' which you have quite nicely dedicated to Kate. I certainly would like to learn more about this rather magnificent 'Dez Rez', an in turn discover more about this North Eastern family.

A lovely set in which each has its rightful place though so different each from the others. The comp and light of V1 works so well. Not sure I'd find those chairs all that comfortable though the workmanship involved is outstanding.

A fine set of images and I particularly like No. 1. Just one small thing that jars slightly and that is the light wood speaker? down near the RH corner ~ personally I would have removed that.

The stained glass and the lithograph are encouraging me to get to Glasgow - but I'm not sure how this will work!! Lovely reproductions of this art Ronnie.
The lighting on all is very good, exposer excellent, the detail is outstanding, all that and your skill makes this a good series of shots.

steady mitt here Ronnie 1.3 second shot, but it has to be as the lighting in that room is pretty grim the shutter speed the steady mitt and the wee Sony have handled the situation very well V1 first the litho 2nd and the parrot 3rd for me today.

Good set of images, Ronnie, each with its own st of exposure problems which you have overcome immaculately.

That's one more than I, Ronnie Smile. A lovely angle on v1 and well exposed to show lots of detail... including the smoke alarm Tongue - you'd think they'd disguise it somehow. v2 doesn't look like a stained glass at all. I like the artwork in v3 as well, although it does remind me I've got a few rows to dig up myself.

Wonderful detailed set Ronnie. The light in V1 is majestical as is the detail fine composition. Am rather drawn to V3 but no clear favorite all would have my vote.

Love the light across the whole room Ronnie, the wooden tabletop looks grand with the touch of artificial light and the chair legs look good with the daylight.

The tat tie howkers are tremendous in the drawing, wish it was mine.

On first glance at V1 Ronnie, I thought that the table was
going to be set up for a meal, and was going to ask you 'what time'?
Always good to meet other EPZ folk as they have the same interests
and you certainly have shown three wonderful images today

24 Aug 2012 1:14PM
You've found a good POV with V1 and done a good job with the exposure in what must have been a tricky lighting situation. Is that an "exit via the gift shop" situation I see through the open doorGrin
I particularly like the artwork in V3.

I'm glad to hear that you spent an enjoyable day with a fellow photography enthusiast, I must say that all the epzers' I've met so far have been mad as hatters, I've yet to meet a sane, normal one!Wink I guess that is what spending hours infront of your pc day in day out does to you, one only has to look at messeurs Durbin and Osmant and my point is proved!WinkGrinTongue
