So, time for a few more from this meeting:

n41 - Memorial to The British Infantry - Hougoumont



n42 - Memorial Inscription



n43 - Different Viewpoint



n44 - Thou Shall Not Enter



I think of all the shots I took there, that has to be the one I am most pleased with; perhaps there's a connection with the location and the feeling of the place but I just felt this was what I really wanted to portray at that moment.

n45 - Hougoumont Farm - On The Right Flank



n46 - Tree and Hill - In Complete Harmony



Moving on to Wellington's base which is now a Museum:

n47 - Toddy Cups?



n48 - Memorial Coin



n49 - 1815 Memorial Model

My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

Thanks for keeping the thread alive Neil, and with wonderful shots. I saw you take n44 and even pointed my camera there but I didn't "see" it. I'm glad you did because it's indeed a lovely picture that goes very well with the story and the atmosphere of the Hougoumont farm.

p27: Another play with light and shadow

A6000 + E18-105/4


p28: I also found a corner

A7 + MC Rokkor 58/1.4


p29: the making of n35

A6000 + E18-105/4

Thanks for the additional images, Pieter - that corner was actually a good find; I missed that one...

Oh, and good to see you finally managed to capture my best side at the Hougoumont chapel!

Best regards, Neil.

Okay, to finish my series off I will add a few from St. Joseph's Church, Waterloo, near the Wellington Museum; much of that is devoted to the memory of the British losses during the battle but it's also a rather pleasant little church in it's own right:

n50 - Domed Entrance (seen in another thread):



n51 - Side Aisle



n52 - Main Aisle



n53 - Altar



n54 - Organ Stops



n55 - Christ on the Cross



n56 - Pulpit Steps



n57 - Memorial Stone



n58 - One Last Look Back



All images in my contribution taken on the Sony a99 V SLT and Sigma 24-70/2.8 EX IF HSM combination and all hand-held.

I have to conclude my set by complimenting Pieter for the suggestion and the great company throughout the day; these meetings, even between a couple of Members, are a great way of meeting other people who have different methods and viewpoints of taking photographs, and a lot can be learned from seeing a location through others eyes. Thanks to Pieter for the time and making it such a pleasant day, and to all of you for looking through this set - 58 images isn't a bad return for a day trip!

Best regards, Neil.

The whole series (Pieter and Neil thanks ) makes me wanna go there. I have been visiting Belgium for WWI memories, but this place certainly deserves a visit also.

Too many good shots to comment on individual shots, but I agree with Pieter about n44)
Be yourself, there are enough others Comment yourself there are enough interested readers

A7 + Nokton 35/1.2 II


p33: Only very few walls of the Hougoumont castle remain (mainly attached to the chapel)

A7 + Nokton 35/1.2 II


p34: What to do when someone "steals" your picture ? Try a different processing!

My last series, from the St Joseph Church in the center of Waterloo

p35: View towards the altar



p36: Pulpit



p37: Baptistry



p38: Organ bokeh



p39: Exterior view


All A7 + Nokton 35/1.2 II

Neil, thanks for the companionship and doing this day together. I had a great time, learned a lot of new (or should I say old?) historical facts and the next time you come I'm sure we can find another nice historical area to explore together.

Hi Pieter,

Good to see the last few from you; also good to see the 'floor tripod' shot of the Dome worked out so well; you got the placement just about spot-on for that one!

I too have 'The Pulpit shot' but you managed to get the christening font which I missed - I walked up to it but missed the wider view as you show us here. Finally, I also like the Organ Bokeh shot for the slightly different viewpoint: strange how people's vision of the same place can sometimes be so different.

Again, thanks for the company and, for those other Members that may be thinking of doing a small 'mini-meet' (or larger), go ahead and give it a try; this was a great time and I look forward to the chance of another meet sometime soon!

Best regards,

Neil.
