WW- Langtons


This week's entry for the Tuesday and Wednesday editions of Wordless Wednesday is an 18th century building in Hornchurch. It is now used by the local council as a venue for wedding receptions... My sister had her wedding breakfast and party here back in 1983.

I can't spend much time at the pc at the moment what with my leg being in plaster. I will try to get around to visit as many WW participants as I can.

Tough time for a leg injury, best wishes on that.

The photo almost looks Infrared.

James Higham said...

Not a former MOD building then?

Sean Jeating said...

Langtons was also three times in row (1986-88) "Pub of the Year".
Well, the Langtons in Kilkenny.

stan said...

What a stately building that is. At first glance, I thought a celebrity or a rich person lives in it.

Sry to hear abt your leg. Get well soon!

THanks everyone.

I took this shot a couple of years ago with my Nikon D50 and an IR filter. THe IR effect isn't bad if I say so myself!

Mojo said...

So that's what gave it this surreal quality! I'd wondered how you go that.

Nevin said...

I agree jams... IR effect is quite impressive!

Renegade Eye said...

I used to use infrared film, that made every picture look like that.

Don't even ask about color infrared film. It's great if you want to do a portrait, and make the person look like a Zombie.

jams o donnell said...

Glad you like the effect Nevin

Ah an IR filter and a DSLR is so much easier Ren. I have never tried colour IR work though

Sexy cast! Yes, you SHOULD pimp it out - why is it white? Get some multi-colored marking pens and go out and ask perfect strangers to sign it!

Hope you are better soon.

Happy Tuesday,

Hi Jams,

Take good care of yourself and don't worry about visiting while you're recuperating.

This looks like a wonderful place for a wedding reception or wedding breakfast. So beautiful!

Cheers, Carver

It looks magical!Best wishes for your leg!

SandyCarlson said...

That's quite a place. I wonder if the folks who built it could have imagined its future purpose.

Joanne MV said...

Happy WW! Ü

EastCoastLife said...

Still in a cast? Poor jams.
That building looks great for a wedding reception.

catsynth said...

Interesting shot, I'm wondering about the coloring/brightness. I'm sure it's a nice place for wedding receptions.
Sorry you're still in plater. Hope the leg recovery goes smoothly.

lareine said...

love the effect!... hope you'll recover soon :)...

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyone!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Cool effect on the shot. Hope your leg heals quickly. That is quite a cast you have.

SandyCarlson said...

That's a really neat photo. Haunting!

TorAa said...

Seems to be a great place for Weddings. Excellent photo work.

Hope your leg will soon recover. My toe still hurts, byt it's better than it was some weeks ago.

jams o donnell said...

It is a great place for a wedding Tor. Glad your toe is on the mend. I have 3-4 more weeks in this damned cast

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

Sorry to hear about your leg. Sounds like a lap top would come in handy. Pretty amazing how the blossoms on those trees just shimmer. Happy WW

Robin said...

What pretty trees outside that building. I'll bet many a wedding party has been photographed there.

I'm sorry to hear about your leg. That's no fun at all. Heal well, and fast.

CherryPie said...

Love the effect, I also agree with James it does look like a MoD builidng!

Eaton Bennett said...

I can't get that kind of 'old' in Oz. I can't imagine being able to just head out and pick me some incredibly old place to photograph, not without catching an international flight. Interesting look to the photo too. :)

Alison said...

I've been enjoying your recent posts (yes, do pimp the zimmer!), but I especially loved to see Langtons.

liza said...

I like the idea of old places being used now as a wedding reception. I hope your leg is feeling a lot better now.

jams o donnell said...

Glad you liked seeing Langtons again Alison

THanks for your kind words Liza
