This lamp — the Trinity Lamp — I can hardly walk by it witout shooting a picture of it. I have quite a few now, in my collection … from all kinds of angles. I took this one, the other day, when Gerry went to a funeral, and I took a photo walk. Told him to drop me off at the Trinity Lamp so it was bound to be another shot of it.
It’s also referred to as “Three Sisters”, and here’s a bit of history [picture will come up in new tab/window for better viewing]. I think, perhaps we all have some favourite object or subject when it comes to photography. In my case it’s normally furry and feathered friends, but I do have a hang-up about this lamp 🙂
Still … after having lived here for almost four years, I haven’t got a night shot of it! We’re rarely out at night, and the one time I went down there to shoot one, one lamp was broken so that wasn’t all that much fun.
I just love the concept of this light as an old navigation aid … Perhaps there should be beacons like this on the, sometimes stormy, seas of life too … leading the way, telling us where to go… I’m not going to go all philosophical over this now, but here is a picture of the Trinity Church, not too far from the lamp.
I’ll never forget the first time I was trying to take a picture of this church, when we’d just moved here. Was somehow, hunched down, trying to get a better angle … decided I needed to change lens, I was all engrossed in that, so I almost fell backwards when the bells started to chime at noon! 🙂
