Kenilworth Castle

[singlepic id=1793 w=750 float=center]

I’m back from a ten day trip to the United Kingdom with a new batch of images.

The trip was almost all business for my wife, who worked along side counterparts from the UK’s National Health all week, but strictly pleasure for my son Ryan and me. We spent six days in Coventry followed by three days in London.

From Coventry, Ryan and I explored castles and churches dating back about a thousand years, a bit of the countryside, a taste of remote villages and some rock houses maintained by the National Trust. Of course, we hit Shakespeare’s birthplace (where we got caught in a crush of school kids) and did the double decker bus tour in London (in the rain).

I have a lot of images to show, starting with this one — Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire County. On our first full day on the trip, Ryan and I spent a couple of hours exploring the ruins. This was the last shot I caught before moving on to shoot St Mary’s Church in Warwick (one of my favorite stops).

As I present shots from the trip I’ll try my best to add some context. To me, shooting old buildings doesn’t mean much without learning a bit about it’s history.

Some notes:
I won’t be presenting these UK images serially, like I did with the Nevada images. I’ll be jumping around from location to location. I still have images from Nevada to show you as well, so you are guaranteed a good variety for a while.

I also want to thank everyone for stopping by the Blog while I was gone. I got a few comments and emails while I was away. I appreciate the support.
