So Yesterday, Darling! - # 09/138

Ham House has to be "felt" as much as seen. You are indeed back in the 17th Century. The light here is coming only from the dim, low wattage electric "candle lamps" that light the rooms one by one. The shutters are closed. The house is dark, waiting for the visitors to arrive. I wander, glimpse the scene and try to capture the feeling. Take yourself back to 1673.


  1. The light is exquisite. Hard to believe it's from "candles". How nice to try and imagine what it was like, but I don't think we really can, can we ?
    How special that you get to work on this wonderful place and therefore bring it to life for us. Your photographs absolutely do it justice.
