Photographer's Note

Taken on the TE visit to Shropshire, which has already elicited a number of images posted by the various participants. I said at the time that most of my stuff from this meeting was likely to be monochrome. Wrong.

This is part of the altar-cloth on the front of the altar in the church of St. John the Baptist, Bishop's Castle. I was struck by the richness of the textiles and the workmanship that had gone into its making. I'm not religious, but can appreciate commitment and the artistry involved. I didn't want to show the whole thing, nor its physical context; just preferred to concentrate on pattern and colour.

1/30 sec was a bit slow to hand-hold, but upping the ISO to 800 has just about allowed me to get away with it. I think.
