The weather, history and the people passing through the Castle have certainly left their mark, particularly on the walls. While visiting the Castle last January, I wished the walls could talk, and in many ways they did.
The weather has worn the thick stone walls and the sun peeps through the windows, casting its shadow down the hallways and stairs inside. People have written their history on the walls – and am sure they will continue to do so – giving a human face to the grey stone walls.
I was drawn to photographing the buildings in black and white, and had wished I hadn’t run out of film. The histories presenting themselves on the walls, as elsewhere in the Castle, seemed timeless in black and white. However, the vibrant colours of the furnishings – giving them an almost childlike effect – demanded colour film.
It was a shame I didn’t have time to finish wandering around the Castle, and hope to revisit – along with my camera and some more film.
