You can walk underneath St Swithuns Church and not know it’s there. Yes, “under”, for this church forms a walkway between two buildings over a street in Winchester. It is for this reason that it appealed to me as a photographer, an intriguing location that just had to be explored.
It is indeed a delightful church, small, intimate and full of history. However for me it was the light that made me grin from ear to ear.
No matter what the weather is doing outside, stained glass windows always catch the light wonderfully. In this case the colours and shadows bounced off the walls playfully, as if almost teasing me. Initially I was going to photograph this subject head on but it looked far more appealing from the side.
I can’t help but feel that a person in the frame may have added something but then again perhaps not?
Do you find that as time goes by certain images you took a year or so ago become more appealing? I have always liked this image but recently, whilst shuffling my portfolio around, this one just had to go in. I believe it’s this gradual process that enables one to define their own style.
What do you think?
