The apothacary’s room

We are back to Kentwell Hall for todays favourite picture and it’s one I included in my post about using prime lenses during our holiday but I really like this picture so I’m giving it it’s own post. This is in one of the upper rooms in some of the out houses at Kentwell, where some Tudor re-enactment players were collecting herbs and manufacturing medicine used by tudor Englanders. This lady was sitting in the window and I liked the way light was streaming through the window but the rest of the room was in dark. I tried to wait until the visitors in modern dress were out of the way, but then I decided that it was never going to happen, and anyway it might provide a nice contrast to have modern folk mixed with tudor folk.

As with most of the other pictures taken at Kentwell, this was taken with my Soligor 28mm f/2.8.
