Lovely colour mix! Nice work too.
I have some somewhere way back. But I thought photography inside was banned? There used to be a sign at the entrance.
Only flash is now banned and my camera (6D) is not fitted with one. In fact a took some with in camera HDR which are the best I have done still room for improvement next time I feel the need to visit my sister, which will probably be soon.
I do remember in the Church of Bom Jesus in Braga, I set up my tripod in the middle of the floor and held my arms out to keep people from walking in the way during the very long exposure. If you look "official" enough you can often get away with it.
So, let me get this right, you were in a church with your arms held out and people avoided you because they thought you were "official"?
Are you sure they didn't think you were doing some sort of impression of JC being crucified?
I used to use a tripod for all my interior pictures but that was in my film days of 21-22 years ago, I still use a tripod for the one or two bird pictures in the garden using a 400mm lens and long home made cable release, nowadays if its interior pictures I just up the ISO to 1600 or 3200......my tripod is now to heavy to cart around, its just one of the drawbacks of getting old I'm afraid.....I try and control the noise in camera or in a editing programme and lets face it my pictures are not going very far anyway!.....Oh by the way I never entered any of these buildings without being dressed properly. I found that people who worked in these places appreciated that! and that always made me look official and professional...
As Shortwood Common is an SSSI, I suspect they aren't allowed to change the gate. Same with the crossing on Staines Common, which has a ratty old style.
Anyway, a twofer...

It's funny, he mused or possibly ruminated, how someone comes up with a theme and you think, "Nah, got nothing that fits that," and it turns out you have. Four or five in my case. Sort of.
Maybe that's why the Monthly Theme thread is 'easier' - you take pictures specifically for it.
Hey speak for yourself my last two bags pictures were specially taken an if you are unlucky there may be more
Long bent gate

Gateway to ... not exactly 'heaven' is it?
Home is where the heart is, in this case it's where the bins is!
Re-purposed gate. This stretch of road is a notorious accident black spot and the farmers who own the land on either side of it seem to have tired of trying to mend the wall with stones, or else don't know how because there are various improvised patching efforts going on all along it now.
