For those of you that follow my photos, you may recognise this as a close-up shot of one of my previous locations, The Painted Hall
in Maritime Greenwich.
Even on a quiet day, this room can still get pretty busy. The most annoying aspect is that any tour groups of the Old Royal Naval College stop right in the middle of this room for about ten minutes at a time. Thus, trying to get this shot took about 45 mins wait.
During my stay in this room, there were some assistants from a film company stopping people going to certain parts of The Painted Hall, as they were shooting a major movie outside the building and didn't want any distractions at the windows. Thankfully, after a while, I manage to persuade them to move out of my way after they stopped people entering the hall. For those interested, it was a version of Les Misérables
staring Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Helena Bonham Carter. Quite the cast!
This has reputedly been called the finest dining hall in Europe
and hopefully you can get some idea of it's grandeur from this photography. Can you imagine eating your chicken kiev and chips in here? Nah, neither can I.
