I prefer what's coming down the stairs, aesthetically, of course.
Bill Phillips: I think I agree Rob smile

Are these portraits of your ancestors, Bill?
Bill Phillips: Do I seem like someone descended from Bishops Ray?
She presents a perfect prop!
Bill Phillips: She certainly does E
On dirait Sissi impératrice.
Bill Phillips: She has a regal air doesn't she?

She certainly looks the part, though perhaps not a Bishop's wife
Bill Phillips: A bishops daughter perhaps?
LOL at Lisl. My first thought was to wonder if they are all without scandal?!
Bill Phillips: I am sure the Bishops of Worcester have all been above reproach Ginnie.....
Is she the last in line of the fortune?? Bill, this is just wonderful and what a timing fer her to come down...
Bill Phillips: I lingered until she did Astrid grin

Yes, this is a wonderful serendipity - I like your composition very much.
Bill Phillips: Hartlebury Castle was the home of the Bishops of Worcester for many hundred years Philine

I don't remember that woman on the stairs! Or were you there on another occasion?
Bill Phillips: Yes, Ange and I went on the Heritage open day when this young lady was floating around.

Now I don't recall the lady; I was probably too busy being appalled at the painting of the bishop in the bright red cloak. She suits the period quite well; she would blend in well with the average Bath resident.
Bill Phillips: That painting was awful. I wonder what the poor old Bishop thought of it when it was unveiled ?

Is a bishop and an admiral the same rank?
Bill Phillips: Errrr I have no idea Louis
Worth waiting for the lady to descend the stairs.
Bill Phillips: I thought so Brian smile
Worth waiting for the lady to descend the stairs.
Visited some wonderful historic English homes last week, Bill, but never saw a beautiful lady dressed in period costume descend a curved staircase in such an elegant way as you've captured here. A lovely composition, as well.
Bill Phillips: I will look forward to seeing your pictures Beverly! This was on a heritage open day when many properties are free. They put on a really good show. It is actually the former Bishops palace and is also the home of our local county museum. A really good day out.

I like the parallel flow of the stairs/photos...the lady makes an exquisite touch. I might clone out the white flyers on the desk.
Bill Phillips: Yes it would be simple enough to do that Bonnie

She caught her just at the right moment.
Bill Phillips: She was floating down very elegantly Anne
The lady is certainly more attractive than those old buffers!
Bill Phillips: Can't argue with that Tom
that is way too many Bishops Bill... but the Lady of the house is beautiful....petersmile
Bill Phillips: That's only a few of the Peter grin
