The Chapel of St. Cross
I performed in a concert with the Hampshire Recorder Sinfonia this evening at the Hospital of St. Cross in Winchester. This medieval hospital has some beautiful almshouses and a chapel attached and it was inside the chapel that we gave our concert. It’s a wonderful building with the perfect acoustic for recorders, albeit a tad cold – it was warmer outside than inside this afternoon! I took a few photos in the gardens but it was the interior that really got my photographic juices going. This is the view looking up from between the two sets of choir stalls, taken with my wide angle lens to capture as much as possible. I like the symmetry of the ceiling here, made uneven only by the large wooden cross on one side. This was taken hand held at a rather slow shutter speed and a high ISO but I like the amount of detail and interest it contains enough to post it in spite of its technical limitations.
