As usual, I shied away from taking photos of the grandiose and the million dollar exterior shot (a combination of not wanting to reproduce overly familiar images & my poor technical ability). So instead I wandered around until I came across attractive pools of light and pleasing textures.

With a few weeks off work, I thought I’d have a gander around Bristol. Dusting off my National Trust membership card (criminally under-used), I visited Dyrham House. I was surprised to recognise the exterior and parkland from ‘Remains of the Day’, the Merchant Ivory film starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. The brooding weather didn’t spare any prisoners however, so I whisked myself away in doors, away from the resident stags.
