Day 100 – St Mary’s

Day 100 - St Mary's

10 March 2014 – Dalmahoy, Edinburgh

It’s day 100 – a milestone perhaps but slightly daunting that I am not yet even a third of the way through this project. It will be interesting to see how my work has progressed by day 200 and 300.

In the meantime and to celebrate this landmark I made a special effort to take a photo of a building which has caught my eye over the last 100 days but I had not previously made the effort to capture given its awkward location. This is the small church which within the grounds of Dalmahoy Country Club and is shot with a long exposure and tripod.

The church – St Mary’s, which was originally provided by Helen, Lady Aberdour, was consecrated on Tuesday, 24th September, 1850 by Bishop Terrot, Bishop of Edinburgh. It was never a private family chapel. From the start it was a place of public worship in the Anglican tradition.


  1. Just stopped in to say that I love this photo. You’ve got some great stuff here. I’ve just purchased a Nikon D5100, which I “think” you’re using as well, and loving it so far. I’m not sure what your project is, but I’m off to find out!
