I have barely had a minute spare to get outside with my camera, all my time being taken up as I prepare for my forthcoming jaunt to Australia. Yesterday, however, I had a brief break in my schedule and we had a family outing to Chartwell, the family home of Winston Churchill in Kent.
The house is a National Trust property. We’ve only just joined and are presently making very good use of the membership. It is, I think, going to save us an absolute fortune when it comes to entertaining the children.
While exploring the extensive grounds, we found a series of very large swings. I took this shot in burst mode as Helen had a play on them. Following this, we had a race across a field and got ourselves covered in mud as we did so (#dirtisgood, after all).
The picture looked okay in colour, but ’ve flipped it into black and white. ISO was 100, focal length 24mm, shutter speed 1/320 of a second and aperture f4.
Chartwell is an impressive property. The views are absolutely stunning and there are many artifacts and objects of interest from Churchill’s time during the war years. The kids, however, were very excitable and wanted to spend all the time outside and so Mrs Adams and I have vowed to return another day without the little ones so we can slowly peruse the property at our own pace.
