Hanbury Church

This will be too dark for some I expect 

 

I will be away for a few days after today,  so will not be posting until I return

 

So I will leave you with my favourite joke 

 

A Yorkshiremans' wife dies and the widower decides that her headstone should have the words "she were thine" engraved on it. He calls the stone mason, who assures him that the headstone will be ready a few days after the funeral. True to his word the stone mason calls the widower to say that the headstone is ready and would he like to come and have a look. When the widower gets there he takes one look at the stone to see that it's been engraved "she were thin". He explodes - bloddy 'ell man, you've left the bloddy "e" out, you've left the bloddy "e" out. The stone mason apologises and assures the poor widower that it will be rectified the following morning. Next day comes and the widower returns to the stone mason - "there you go sir, I've put the "e" on the stone for you". 
The widower looks at the stone and then reads out aloud - "e she were thin".

The photo is not too dark for me - I like how the color pops
Bill Phillips: I can see that Frank has been educating you in the subtlety of English humour

A capital joke Mr Bear. This picture is not too dark for me.
Bill Phillips: I hear a voice but I can't see anyone

Dark churches have always a special atmosphere - this means I like your image - I wish you wonderful Easter holidays! Later I'll read the joke (my brain is still a bit slow working).
Bill Phillips: I could spend hours photographing churches Philine. Thank you for your kind wises....first I have to survive the wilds of Soggysetshire in the ancient kingdom of Wessex

I think I would have preferred the Blackdog treatment for the picture, nothing that a few thousand gallons of black paint wouldn't cure

That joke is terrible
Bill Phillips: The joke is wonderful. Did think of B&W but decided on vivid bright colour instead

Colour shown where colour is - what better, Bill? Don't listen to Chris
Bill Phillips: The next time I listen to Chris will be the first Lisl grin
The way the light comes into the darkness is testament to how the darkness cannot snuff it out! I love this, Bill. Now the joke? That's another story. HA!
Bill Phillips: I am pleased you like the picture. The first time i heard this joke I almost cried laughing....I suppose you have to be English grin

I think the darker the better would have been the right approach ... In fact as dark as Chad's Sunday efforts would have been brilliant
Bill Phillips: Be afraid comrade

Not for me - enjoy the break.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mike. I hope to get enough pictures to last a week or two
Lovely.Dont take a camera with you.
Bill Phillips: I intend to take at least 600 pictures and drive you to the edge of insanity and, hopefully, beyond with the resulting series on shutterchance
It seems blurry in spots but is not too dark.
Bill Phillips: A bit of compromise Mary this was 5 pictures and for at least 1 the shutter speed was very slow....even on a tripod!
The joke's OK; but love the picture Bill, the lighting is spot on!
I hope you enjoy your break smile
Bill Phillips: Pleased you like it. The break will probably be hard work bearing in mind who I am going with

The joke is rather funny, but you forgot the word 'Lord'!
Bill Phillips: That could work
I think this is a terrific image Bill, and the jokes pretty good as well. Enjoy your few days away.

It works for me. I like the patches of light and the vivid colour. Enjoy your trip to another part of the Empire.
Bill Phillips: Soggysetshire in the Ancient Kingdom of Wessex where men are men and so are the women
i like the wide view here and the darkness just makes me want to go around the place for t closer look.
Bill Phillips: Take a torch Ayush grin

You left it too long in the developer ink smile No, I like it.

Oh, Englishman, pray tell me, why isn't it "she was thine"? I am so easy lost when departing on the thin tracks.
Bill Phillips: Ah dear South African you see the man is from Yorkshire and would say were. Was is correct but they talk different up north grin
