These are the main steps leading up to the quire in Canterbury Cathedral, just to my right is where in 1170 Thomas Becket was murdered in an area known as the Martyrdom. These stairs have been worn down by over 900 years of people walking up and down in their worship of the Protestant God.
The importance of our Cathedral is shown because One of the original copies of the Magna Carta was made for Canterbury Cathedral and Archbishop Langdon was involved in drawing up the document.
The link takes you to where the image was captured.
The lady in the image is one of the few women in a position of power in the Church today, one of few Lady Bishops which caused a stir in the protestant faith across the world.
This is really a consistency image this week as normally I would have used a far slower shutter speed for this scene.
I prefer to get a sense of movement in vehicles to add a realistic feel to my images.
The only time I ever really try to freeze the action is when photographing water drops is involved,
but then I would use a much slower shutter speed of 1/250 and a very fast flash to actually freeze the water.
This is one of the older parts of Canterbury, the main house is from before AD 1500, some of its history can be found in this link, but there is much more to the building and the area around it
The image as far as this week's theme is concerned is sharp apart from the people who were enjoying a Saturday night out on the town. Although the image looks like there are not many people out, even right in front of me, there were a lot of people moving through the scene as well as a fire engine, but the long exposure (bracketed) removed a lot of the less visible movement. This image is made up of 5 shots all merged together using Lightroom as it gave a better result than photoshop. The image was taken about 30 minutes after sunset
