Queens House is remarkable for its simplicity of Design .... Charles the 1st comissioned the house for his then wife Ann of Denmark. Its true to say it had its origins in Tudor times as Henry V111 was born in Greenwich and Elizabeth 1st, his daughter, wanted the house there.
Queen Ann had the influence, and went on to command Christopher Wren to change the Design into a twin Towers building @ Royal Naval College. You see she wanted the new Buildings designed so she could still see the river Thames from her window. That's the stuff, that money can't buy.... Right!
It has been a life time ambition to Photograph the Morgan here although initially I wanted my MGB in the photograph back in 1982. I had been working for the MG enthusiast magazine for some time. My Morgan project did come to a head some time ago. I have recently started to visit again to produce a Book called *Bodyparts :The Book of Morgan.*
To give it a religious flavour. Book of Morman ha ha. So here we have Morgan +8 on the path that 12 kings and Queens have walked. This little car for me, represents British engineering at it's best ..... it's what I call Domestic : In photography, especially travel photography its best to show Domestic activities to show that exotic places are really the same just the problems are different.
This little car is a mere 105 years old in conception. Compared to Queens House that's a drop in the Thames. The +8 is Stephen Graham's car and he rescued it in Scotland and gave it to Brands Hatch Motors, in Kent where Sarah organised its renovation .... Bravo Sarah.........
So first this is NOT a product shot, its a used 1996 model of superb quality.
That's one of the items on my Bucket list done ..... keith xxx
