Nunsquarter, Kircubbin

Nunsquarter, Kircubbin and St Mary’s RC Church. I’ve often driven along the Portaferry Road and fancied stopping to take some photographs of this imposing building and to date never had the time!  I’d photographed a wedding at the other church in the parish, St Joseph’s – and I was a bit disappointed that the bride didn’t opt for St Mary’s. 

Nevertheless, driving back towards Newtownards a few days ago I made a point of pausing for a few minutes, just long enough to get some shots of the exterior. (The building was closed.)

 I used the Nikon F100 camera with a prime 50mm lens, Ilford Delta 100ISO film, and shot with a shutter speed of 1/125th sec. It was a dull day so the aperture was around f/8 for most of the shots. I also did one shot of the house beside the chapel – presumably a former shop.
