<p>The walls on this staircase were committed by William III and painted by Antonio Verrio, an Italian painter.<br />

Originally built by Cardinal Wolsey in the early 16th century, Hampton Court was eventually taken over by Henry VII and turned into his residence. The palace is a blend of Tudor and Baroque architecture and was a home to the royal family until 1737 under George II. In 1838, Queen Victoria opened its doors to visitors.</p>

<p>Canon EOS R6 Mark II, Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II (lens shift used), processed in Lightroom and Photoshop. This is made from three originals shot with the camera held strictly level and the lens in three positions successively - maximum down shift, normal, and maximum up shift. Easiest on a tripod, but possible without (with practice). The viewfinder electronic level is a great help in general, but especially when using this lens. Keep it level at all times!!<br />
<br />
Be there early! I went with my TS-E shift lens on a glorious winter day.<br />

Wikipedia: &quot;The Tower of London, officially His Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London, is a historic castle on the north bank of the River Thames in central London, England. [...] It was founded toward the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest. The <b>White Tower</b>, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by <b>William the Conqueror in 1078</b> and was a resented symbol of oppression, inflicted upon London by the new Norman ruling class. [...]  A grand palace early in its history, it served as a royal residence. As a whole, the Tower is a complex of several buildings set within two concentric rings of defensive walls and a moat. There were several phases of expansion, mainly under kings Richard I, Henry III, and Edward I in the 12th and 13th centuries. The general layout established by the late 13th century remains despite later activity on the site.&quot;<br />

<p>The Children, written by Lucy Kirkwood and directed by Carrie Cable<br />
<br />
Tuesday 20 – Saturday 24 February 2024, 7.45pm, studio<br />
<br />
The setting is an old, isolated cottage near the sea. Hazel and Robin are eking out their lives as the world around them crumbles. Something has gone very wrong at the nearby nuclear power station and the local area has been devastated. There has been a radiation leak and electricity and water have been rationed. Then Rose, an old colleague arrives. They reminisce on their lives, love affairs, marriage, parenthood and ageing. <br />
<br />
But all three were nuclear scientists who worked at the plant in their youth.<br />
<br />
The implications of the disaster and consequences for the land, the environment and the young scientists and others who work at the plant are becoming clear and the conversations take a different turn.</p>
