#MySundayPhoto, Entertainment, Photos

My Sunday Photo – Week 27.


I’ve had a some lovely freelance commissions lately which have been a pleasure to research and write – although they have meant that I haven’t been able to blog as much.

One of them was about The Octagon Unitarian Chapel in Norwich where, along with taking a portrait of the lovely lady I was interviewing, I also managed to snap some other shots, including this one I have chosen for #MySundayPhoto.

Don’t you think he looks real? I did, anyway. His name is James Martineau (1805- 1900) and he was an eminent Unitarian. At first I pondered why he was placed where he was high up on a window ledge but now I like the idea of him sitting looking out of the window if he wants.

  1. That’s lovely, and very real. Like a photographic portrait of then what turns out to already be a portrait. And yes to having a window view for eternity.


    1. That’s a lovely way of looking at it, Caz. I was a bit worried he was being overlooked but perhaps he enjoys things just as they are πŸ™‚


    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one, it’s such a lifelike sculpture and it’s only small. Thanks for commenting, Jenni πŸ™‚


    1. She was also a member of the congregation. She sounds like an amazing woman from what I’ve been reading but she isn’t given the credit she is due for some reason.


      1. Happened to find this as part of my research today: “Martineau Lane was actually named after her uncle Dr Philip Meadows Martineau.:


  2. It sounds like you’re having a busy but exciting time. I did think it was someone sitting silhouetted again the window. I like to think of him being able to look out of the window when he wishes.


    1. It’s amazing to look at up close, whoever made him was very talented. He’s so lifelike but I did like him in silhouette. I agree, it looks like a lovely way to while away the hours. Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚


  3. It’s a great picture of an impressive statue, very similar to one that stands in the library of Harris Manchester College, Oxford. James Martineau is an endlessly interesting character, you can read about something about his ministries in Liverpool on my blog.
