Oh, do you start to write down your memoirs, too: John William Phillips...? I like the fine and warm lighting - yes, "very old wordly" (Victorian century?).
Bill Phillips: I will leave the memoirs to young Doveton. I would think Victorian / Edwardian

This is a portrait of the fourth Lord Clench: the mad one who knew the name of every colour of paint ever made
Bill Phillips: He sadly drowned in a vat of county cream emulsion

My daughter made me some ginger biscuits for my birthday. They were very good and had a piece of real ginger in the centre. I wonder why they are called 'ginger snaps'? Is it because they can be extremely brittle? I like the gingery quality to this photograph Bill.
Bill Phillips: They should have a bit of crunch. A good ginger snap is a rewarding biscuit
Bit of a posh environment ... not the sort of place that someone who works in a woodyard could affored.
I think the bright light adds something to the picture but I'm not sure what.
Bill Phillips: It adds bright light. i'm only apart timer in the wood yard and live in a humble abode
This looks a lovely old place Bill. Your colours go well with the wood or is that sepia treatment?
Bill Phillips: Wish I could remember which National trust pile this is. I think it was Coughton court
Best thing you have ever done Bill.
Bill Phillips: GOSH!!! Thanks Mick

Ginger biscuits eh: he didn't damn well offer one to me!
Bill Phillips: That surprises me as I have always felt that Chad is a person of a generous nature. Perhaps ginger biscuits are very special to him
This very well could be the opening shot of a prestige British period production, Bill. Love it!
Bill Phillips: We do a lot of those so I might be in with a chance Beverly grin
Good shot Bill, you have made the most of that silly NT rules not allowing the use of flash.
Bill Phillips: Actually i am not against the use of flash. Three reasons. Firstly I don't like using flash except at parties in bad light! Secondly the brightness of a multitude of flashes going off could damage fragile materials, which are kept in low light to conserve them and finally can you imagine looking in a room with flas going off all round you.
A fine mood-setting shot here, Bill. Really gives a vintage feel to the whole scene.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Alex. I always enjoy your comments so thanks for taking the trouble
This is a really good snap of a snap Bill, lovely old time atmosphere smile
Bill Phillips: I like that... a snap of a snapgrin

I hope at some point you will be able to afford electricity, Bill (or are these electric candles?). In the meantime, this has a fine light to it.
Bill Phillips: This newfangled stuff is beyond me Alan
Good lighting again, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Graeme
Clearly a gentleman of some class - and a fine image, Bill.
