Almost two years ago, I was invited to accompany Nikhil into our Parliament Buildings to do some photography, this being the first time I had stepped foot onto these premises, I was very excited.
And I think, like my first time at the Falls at Kato, I may have been too excited, too excited to properly take in what I was seeing and translate it into photographs.
When I first started processing these two years ago I was very excited and began with my HDR image of the grand staircase which I showcased in my blog-post “Into the Halls of Power”. After that the rest paled somewhat by comparison and I only went back to them recently.
I started off with my “Mail Drop Box” image that I had posted to my Facebook page, then a second HDR, of the Parliament Chamber, which I did a blog about.
After going through them all, I think that I’ve finally accepted what I had as better than I had thought, and I have processed my favourites from the set and uploaded them to a Gallery on my site.
I think I’d like to do a complete photo essay of this building one day, but for now I have a small selection to show; these include a few exterior shots, a few views of the famous Stabroek Market tower as seen from Parliament, a few corridor shots and even one that includes the St. Andrew’s Kirk.
If I had included a small version of each photo, this blog-post would be longer and have more space allocated to photographs then for words, so I’ve done a small graphical “film strip” with a few select images, and encourage you to click on the film strip to visit the Gallery and see the collection over on the site.

Pretty good series, I am sorry only that it took you so long to get going on them. Not good to keep your fans waiting!
Don’t know what “fans” you’re talking about 🙂
Thanks though, I think that sometimes, leaving them off can be a good thing, you look at them with a different “eye”, so to speak.
I think the wait was worth it. Very beautiful.
Thanks A. Rose.
Mike you are very talented. Looking forward to the photo book.
I think publication of a book may have to wait a while, although I’m thinking about one with images from the Exhibition at the National Gallery. 🙂
