photoblog image The remains of a monastery

The remains of a monastery

View of the Kirkstall Abbey - this place was once a monastery for the Cistercian order of Christian Priests. A majority of the shots I took here went wrong and left me wondering if I could ever learn to shoot with a DSLR. But as I got used to it, I started getting some shots right - this one was one of the transitionary ones - neither absolutely right, nor too bad :)

I intend to learn the tricks of this new toy of mine, but work keeps me busy mostly. But I do sneak in some lessons on DSLR photography in between :)

You'll get the hang of it in no time flat, Thomas. Trust me. smile I like the people in this shot, giving scale to how huge this monastery is!
Thomas Mathew: Thank you Ginnie. I actually didnt want people in the shot, but the place is busy on weekends and it is hard to avoid people in your shots smile
Nice to see you back smile
Thomas Mathew: Thanx Zeb, its a pleasure blogging with fellow bloggers like you smile
