Restoration

One of my favourite National Trust Properties Tyntesfield when it was undergoing restoration. It was kept open during the restoration process so that people could see what was being done.

I like how you've captured this - the spotlight on the worker is great!
Bill Phillips: A twiddle here a twiddle there
This scene belongs in a Hitchcock movie Bill... good composition though....petersmile
Bill Phillips: There was an article on the news today about a primary school teacher who played the shower scene music from Psycho to his class to demonstrate how music was used to establish mood. apparently some of the children are now too frightened to go to the toilet or take a shower. Ironic when you consider the computer games they play from an early age.
This is great ...i agree with peter smile
Bill Phillips: I like b&w films, not so much Hitchcock but the 40s and 50s stuff especially if Bogart is in it!

That is very interesting - a photo of Blackdogian quality!
Bill Phillips: That is high praise Philine
Besides the yellow coloring of the text, which acts as light pollution, the image is very impressive, Bill
Bill Phillips: An aid to the hard of seeing JC

I like this image: intriguing & mysterious, full of depth
Bill Phillips: You are a wonderful human being.....when you want to be

The low light in these NT properties always looks good - provided you can keep your camera steady. Well done Bill.
Bill Phillips: It is a shame they don't seem too keen on tripods!

Looks as if they worked in the dark, Bill
Bill Phillips: Too much light damages things Lisl

What has happened to you Sir Lord Phillips, have you had a blackdog transplant, this is actually good. Yes, read my letters...good. It's all so boring just posting good stuff, we want Bill Phillips back.
Bill Phillips: Tomorrow normal service is resumed
I wonder why the chandeliers weren't removed. They would get dirty and dusty. Awesome shot by the way.
Bill Phillips: I suspect removing them is both difficult and expensive and it is easier to clean them in situ.
Very spooky!
Bill Phillips: I was hoping atmospheric grin
wow Bill... you are beating Blackdog with this amazing use of Black and white images
Bill Phillips: Old Blackie is the master Ronky!

Presumably, though, if they took a torch with them so they could see. It's a bit like work at the Mad House; we are kept in the dark.
Bill Phillips: The mushroom principle much favoured by British management. Kept in the dark and fed on s%&*
Wonderful shot, Bill! The B&W treatment lends an air of intrigue. I wonder if the mask is for the protection of the items being restored or for the person doing the restoration.
Bill Phillips: The latter I would think Beverly

An impressive shot, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you Sir Ray
Unusual for one to be open in this way isn't it. Your B.& W.at the moment is excellent.
Bill Phillips: It is but it meant that revenue was being earned at the same time and it proved very popular. You may recall some pictures of the roof being restored that I posted a while back. A once in a lifetime chance to see it up close from the top of a scaffold tower as it was being done

I've always wanted to go there Bill, and am sorry I missed going before all the restoration, as I love a bit of crumbling antiquity.
Bill Phillips: It is still worth going as there is loads of stuff in the rooms still needing sorting grin
Great shot...
Bill Phillips: You are very kind Larry
Very nice Bill. Good idea to let supporters see what they are supporting.
Bill Phillips: We went a few times and it was fascinating, especially when they finally unveiled the roof!
Very interesting to see and to hear they allow public viewing of what they were up to.
Wow, quite an impressive shot Bill! Well done.

A wonderfully atmospheric picture, now I will go and Google Tyntesfield
This has worked brilliantly in B&W Bill. Great stuff
Meanwhile, in a dark corner, this bloke was repairing parachutes. Cracking picture, Bill.

This image looks almost "ghost" like, scary but a great capture
that is actually a good idea. and you have the behind-scenes captured fabulously.
