Images of England photographer for a day

Earlier this year Sherrie Eugene, the presenter of HTV's Weekend Show, joined Joy Roddy, Images of England photographer, for a days photography in Bristol.

Sherrie wanted to get some hands on experience of photographing listed buildings for a feature she has put together for the show to be broadcast in April on HTV's Weekend Show.

"I'm really a keen enthusiast and not a professional photographer at all!" said Sherrie. "Having spent a day in Bristol with Joy I've begun to realise what a mammoth task the Images of England photgraphers have. There are over 2000 listed buildings in Bristol alone. Taking just one single image of each building is quite a challenge, particularly with a building like the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Joy's photographs on the Images of England website show the amazing diversity of listed buildings in Bristol. I really enjoyed my day out."

 

A selection of Sherrie's photographs

 

K6 telephone Kiosk, St Nicholas Street, Bristol. Grade II listed.

"I didn't realise a telephone box could be a listed building, though on refelection, they are rather special especially as you don't see many of them around. It was an easy 'building' to photograph and a nice gentle start for me being an amateur." Sherrie Eugene

K6 telephone kiosk to top of steps beside No.13 (Formerly Listed as: ST NICHOLAS STREET (South side (off)) steps to Fish Market, K6 telephone kiosk) GV II Telephone kiosk, Type K6. Designed in 1935 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Made by various contractors. Cast-iron. Square kiosk with domed roof. Unperforated crowns to top panels and margin glazing to windows and door. More




 

Drinking Fountain, St Nicholas Street, Bristol. Grade II listed

"With the rain pouring down my neck at the time, the drinking fountain seemed rather apt. Again, a surprisingly listed building! But I was really pleased with how this picture came out." Sherrie Eugene

Drinking fountain (Formerly Listed as: ST NICHOLAS STREET Drinking fountain on wall of covered market) GV II Drinking fountain. 1859. By Will Bros of Suffolk. Cast-iron. Very decorative fountain with a young head of Queen Victoria with cherub supporters More




Market Chambers and attached lamp, St Nicholas Street, Bristol. Grade II
listed.

Market and offices. c1849. By RS Pope. Limestone ashlar, rendered first floor, ashlar lateral stacks, roof not visible. Single-depth plan. 2 storeys and basement; 2-window range to St Nicholas Street, 7 to Exchange Avenue. Ground floor has plinth, impost band, deep plat band, moulded first-floor lintel band, cornice and parapet. More

 




ABC Cinema, Whiteladies Road, Bristol. Grade II listed.

"This used to be one of my favourite places on Whiteladies Road, and such a shame to see it boarded up now. I wasn't surprised that this beautiful building is listed, it has so much character and is a real landmark of Bristol. This one was more difficult to photograph, due to its size and the fact that Whiteladies Road was always, very busy. I know I'm not meant to take two photographs but I couldn't resist showing the tower." Sherrie Eugene

Cinema, formerly with ballroom and restaurant, now respectively offices and public house. 1920-1 as the Whiteladies Picture House by James Henry LaTrobe and Thomas Henry Weston of Bristol. The cinema is of limestone ashlar and render, roof not visible, and incorporates a mid nineteenth-century terraced house of rock-faced Pennant stone with ashlar dressings and twentieth-century pantiled roof. Large auditorium with gallery along street facade, now divided, with striking tower, entered from foyer at corner of site. More

 

 



Images of England Feedback

Overall Sherrie's images are super and the fountain, cinema and telephone kiosk would definitely be included on the website. Sherrie has gone for the detail with her photographs of the lamp and cinema tower - which staff and volunteers are often tempted to do! If you read the list description for the lamp you'll see it includes the attached market and offices. The final shot for the website would need to be taken from further back.
