Photographer's Note

It has been a very long time since I tried to post a "panorama" picture on TE and I'm not sure if this feature still works - so let's have a go!

Oh well, I think it did work - just click on the picture and you should be able to see a much larger panoramic view - but you can also see a bigger version on "beta" TE if you click here!

This is another presentation from Kinneil House in east Scotland.

Yesterday I showed some photographs of wall paintings from the "Arbour Room" of the house and today I show some of the features of the "Parable Room" which in the early 16th century was the bedchamber of James Hamilton, 2nd Earl of Arran and Regent of Scotland.

The main photograph is a triptych of images depicting the Parable of the Good Samaritan: firstly, on the left, the Traveller being attacked and robbed by Thieves, then - the best preserved of all the wall paintings - the Priest and the Levite passing by the wounded Traveller, and, on the right, the Samaritan paying the Innkeeper two pence to look after the Traveller. Other wall paintings in the series were there too but they are very poorly preserved.

In the workshop, pictures of the Parable Room itself.

ISO 2000, 1/30 sec at f/4. focal length 29mm.
