Market Square

Some fun and games with a Sony Alpha 6000 that I have had in my hands for about 20 minutes. Totally different menu to the NEX7 so took me a while to get it to shoot at something like what I wanted. This is a bit of a test shot(s) that I took and pushed the ISO to 3200 becasue it was handheld…I won’t be doing that again ;-). A bit grainy but looks OK when cropped down from its original 7 shot 16,615 x 4,559 px pano.


346/366 The Starr at Christmas

The Dunmow lights are a little disappointing, but The Starr, as always, put on a very Christmasy front!

196/366 The Dunmow Flitch Trials and The Starr

Today in Great Dunmow the Flitch Trials were held. These trials test the love and commitment of couples who have been married for at least a year and a day who have to prove that they live in marital harmony. Held every four years these trials have taken place since 1104 and were mentioned in Chaucer’s “The Wife of Bath’s Tales”.

Successful couples take the Flitch Oath whilst kneeling on pointed stones on a dray, usually in Market Place.
