We go on holiday, sometimes in quite small cottages, and when we return home the first thing that hits us is a sense of space. The house just seems bigger than our cramped vacation. So I was thinking about this and wondered how many images I could lay my hands on where they celebrated the concept of space. No people, or at least perhaps only one or two, and some large indoor space that was just that, a space. A place where things might have been, where they certainly could be in the future, but for now empty and waiting for someone to enter.

An empty and eco-friendly corridor at Martin Mere

A vintage doll's house with no-one playing

Ripon Cathedral awaits its choir

The Long Gallery at Little Moreton Hall no longer sees the Ladies walking

Lyddington Bede House roof space is just an empty medieval space

The Blue Room, a set at the Royal Exchange Theatre awaiting the arrival of the evening

And that's the way it was, with pictures selected from the year 2014. I just chose that year at random and went with whatever was there, so the choice has been a shared experience.

A Butterfly Flutters By

More than one butterfly as we were in the Butterfly House in Stratford-on-Avon. Armed with the Pentax K-3 II and the SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens I was not concerned about the lens or camera being damaged by the high humidity, although pleasant su...
