Bamburgh Castle ~ final part

Part 1  Part 2

More bits and bobs from inside the castle

Oriental vases

Pewter Jug



Serious chains!

More serious chains and some sort of buffalo/cow/bull thing’s head

The Laundry room

Oh K


And that’s the end of our visit to Bamburgh Castle, but just down the road, on our way home we saw a field of huge poppies, so had to stop and take some shots, in the rain of course.

Bigger than Sophie’s hand

Next time we finally get to the Farne Islands again for Puffins and Seals 🙂

        1. No it isn’t 😊 if I had over a grand I’d be getting the FujiXT2 pro! And you know I have loads of pictures taken with my wonderful Nikon cameras, 1stly D90 fab value, 2ndly D7000 couldn’t tell the difference from the D90 😊 then 3rdly the fabulous 2nd hand cheap as chips D700, a great beast of a camera but beautiful results. I even have a few good shots from using my phone camera, and my retro polaroid cameras. My long winded point is, a great shot transcends the equipment used to make it, as your 5 shot post today proved wonderfully.

  3. Nice series altogether . . . one day, maybe, I’ll see a real castle. I really want that mirror. Can you steal it for me?

  4. Your photos of the grand scale and ancient building are…well “grand”. However, I am glad you took the time in this post to include the intimate features that tie everything together.

  5. It’s hard to imagine living in a place like Bamburgh castle. You have really captured the life and atmosphere from another time frame in these images. Even if it’s “only” objects you have photographed, I feel the presents of those who once lived there in your photos.

  6. The mirror… I never thought I would see in reality a mirror like the one in Jan Van Eyck’s Arnolfini portrait. In contrast with the elegant austeriy of the castle the almost wild poppies look quite happy. ^_^

    1. Thanks Francis, the mirror doesn’t have the painted roundelles like in the portrait you mention, but it’s cool anyway 🙂

  7. I wish we had more poppies here in the States. You see a few now and then, but nothing like over there!

    1. We see fields full of them at the right time of year, cheers Sarah. 🙂

  8. Who would have thought that they had to worry about shop lifters in a place like that! I’m guessing the bison was the last one to get caught and served as a warning to others.
