The best thing I can say about this Bill, is I love it. There is so much to see in this, and the light is great.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Frances. It is a fine staircase

Lawyers on stairs...."bannisters"

Doooohhh!

Well...you asked for that, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I know and I could rely on you to oblige Ray grin
Well, I'm not going to say anything about the jokes... :-0 Interesting staircase though! Very decorative!
Bill Phillips: I love these wide staircases from an age of elegance!

a fine atmospheric photograph in a NT manor house as I assume! You have to go down slowly (schreiten) this staircase, not to run (rennen)! The joke is a bit to sophisticated for my small brain, sorry.
Bill Phillips: It is but i can't remember which onegrin

And a high court judge is one who uses Swaziland's best.

Hhehehe.You're courting trouble with jokes like that. I'm impressed with the size of your staircase; your home must be like the Tardis.
Bill Phillips: These are only the back stairs...you should see the main staircase grin
Wonderful capture Bill. I love the atmosphere!
Bill Phillips: It was a very atmospheric house

I really like the tones Bill, they really suit the house, which is lovely with all that old wood smile
Bill Phillips: I thought so too Linda so that makes two of us

Bill Phillips: It was a LADY!!

I should like to live here Bill. That says a lot for your photograph. Not at all like a Jury's Inn.
Bill Phillips: I thank you for your comment

As will know we judge ourselves by our performance against our peers. Those above us are non peers and when two teams take to the field they have a non peer to judge disagreements between them. Over the years a non-peer became an on-pere and the an umpire.

I like the pot pigs!
Bill Phillips: Your story is actually basically true.
The pigs have featured before

Supper capture Bill we love visiting old houses to.Sheila had a laugh at the joke.
Bill Phillips: Ange and I are National Trust members and we get our money's worth grin
Nice to be able to pause and have a little sit down between flights of stairs.
Bill Phillips: Especially going up grin

Great light and a wonderful staircase. Do I see two pigs in the windowsill??
Is this Mr. Evans summerhouse?
Bill Phillips: You can indeed...they features back in December in their own right
Well the image is marginally better than the joke
Bill Phillips: which is a classic, so high praise indeed Mr Trim
How did i know it was a lady, it was out of focus and this is nearly as bad.
Bill Phillips: What's this obsession with things being in focus?? When I take my glasses off this is how i see the world wink

I can almost smell the wood - lovely atmospheric shot, Bill
Bill Phillips: wonderful stuff wood smile
The problem is ... when the jokes start, so many come to mind! Meanwhile, Bill, a good laugh and a great shot!
Bill Phillips: True and most of them are awful grin
I would love those two pigs to put on my shelf of china pigs, I'm sad but I like pigs.
Bill Phillips: Not at all Brian. I like pigs and so does Ange!

Although not sharp, it doesn't really matter. I quite like the lack of focus here - it adds to the atmosphere of yesteryear.
Bill Phillips: I don't mind sacrificing a little sharpness to have the natural light that is available. Although NT allow photography more and more, they don't seem to allow tripods! And I wouldn't use flash even if it was allowed
