Last Light, Roll and Morning Light

Last Light :- A colour shot masquerading as a black and white image! Purposely shot so that the outside light coming through the windows would darken the interior and demonstrate just how moody it was and what it actually felt like to be walking around this abandoned Church that was all set to be demolished. This was one of the last photographs of the interior of St Alban's Church in Coombe Road, Brighton. The Church was built between 1910 and 1914 by Lacy W. Ridge to serve an area in Brighton known as East Preston. It finally closed its doors on closed on 22nd November 2006 and was flattened and eradicated from the landscape in 2013.



Roll :- A shot that was taken during far warmer and sunnier times. The fields and rolling hills are part of farmland that's opposire an area known as 'High and Over' in Seaford, Sussex. The view is looking West towards Newhaven (in the distant haze) with the ancient and historical village of Alfriston just a few miles down the road to the North.



Morning Light :- Here's a view that I know very well. This cliff top path is one of the routes that take when I am walking to and from the village of Ovingdean and Brighton. The path dips down at Roedean and if you catch it at the right time of day the sea glistenes in the sunlight. The image was shot mid morning and has caught the colours of the wild flowers and the vibrant green of the grass and foliage!
