I’m definitely an amateur photographer at best. So I was pleased to be asked recently to allow a photo I’d taken of a simple, well-worn pew inside an old church on the Nova Scotia shore to be used for a poster for an upcoming concert by Acadia University’s distinguished Manning Chapel Choir. Of course, I was more than happy to do so (and the request made my day)!
The sunset concert of Compline, or night prayers, will be sung, appropriately, in a former old church in the small town of Harbourville on the Bay of Fundy about a week before Canada’s Thanksgiving Day. The concert poster is above and the original blog post and series of photos that prompted the request is here. More about the concert and the Manning Chapel Choir can be found here.
Amateur? I really thought you were a pro.
What an honour and an excellent use of your wonderful photograph. well done!!
Your photos are amazing, thank you for sharing.
That photo makes a great background for any kind of poster or book cover image.
A well-deserved honour for that photo.
It is a beautiful photograph and very fitting. Congrats!
Your photo looks fabulous!
Thanks, Joanne. 🙂
It’s so good someone saw your photo and knew just the way to use it! Well done.
A fitting use! 🙂
It is a beautiful photo Brett, I can see why they asked. ❤
Thanks, Diana. 🙂
Well, your photos are great, so I’m not surprised. As for being an amateur – I don’t think so!!!
Much appreciated. 🙂
Wonderful old bench basking in the sun. Lovely!
Congratulations on the honour & a well-deserved honour it is, too. And thank you for linking back to that earlier post — I’d read it, but forgotten it, and was happy to enjoy those images again.
Hi, Penny, thanks for your kind comment. 🙂
On the end of the pew, I would imagine that is a piece of iron across the top holding the wood frame together and then a wooden arm rest attached to it. Is the end of the pew open? It looks to me like floorboards underneath in a lot better condition because no one ever walked on them. What a grand old church. Thanks for another great picture. Congratulations.
Hi, Leland, yes, this is a terrific old church building.
Congratulations. Love the photo and the poster.
Splendid composition! Congratulations on being asked!
A lovely contemplative mellow image … perfect for promoting such an event . Congratulations .
I wonder how it went …
Contemplative is the right sense. 🙂
Nice work! Yesterday I found out I wasn’t following you for some reason so I’m catching up.
Hi, Jane, thanks! 🙂
