A Toddle Through Tenterden

Whilst in Kent I went to visit the Tenterden Camera Club for their social meeting.  It reminded me a lot of my local club in Port Charlotte, the Photo Adventures Camera Club.

Their social format was pretty much the same as hours a projector for showing images and a discussion of recent and upcoming activities and photographers helping each other.  One of theirs was a photowalk through Tenterden and their monthly theme is to be macro and closeup.  It made me wish I was staying a bit longer.

I decided to take the walk through Tenterden though to see what I could find and here are the results.  The dominant building on the skyline is St. Mildreds COE Church.  I went to it to find an ancient church in the midst of an ongoing reconstruction and renovation.  It also seemed to be the day for organ practice so all my shooting at the church was accompanied by appropriate music.

Hanging model ships was apparently a common thing in churches to celebrate launching, successful voyages, etc.  After a while at the church I started down the High Street and found the Quill House along the way.  It had an interesting chain and anchor in the front and a passageway that made for an interesting image.  I’ll need to look into this one a bit more.

This isn’t the best angle to show the anchor but I always think that passageways are interesting subjects.  On the other side of the street the houses had deep gardens most of which were attractively maintained offering another sort of passage.

And finally, the theme of macro and closeup is something I enjoy so I did manage to get a few of those to fit the club theme.  Too bad I won’t be around for the next few meetings of this interesting group.

Thank you Tenterden CC, you made me feel welcome.
