In mid-September (I know, I know, I’ve been lazy) I visited Waddesdon Manor. It’s a mansion built by the Rotshchilds (who made their money as bankers to various royal figures) in the last quarter of the 19th century. Ferdinand de Rothschild basically wanted a party house near-ish London, found land, built a Renaissance-style château. I mean, what’s one to do in one’s spare time? And chicks love mansions. On this little outing I was trying to get my mind back into photography, and as it happens it’s only after that I realise what would have been ideal images. But it’s all part of the process.
