We moved house at the beginning of March this year, and most of our things are still packed away in boxes. I kept my digital camera equipment out so I could use it, and obviously, I haven’t. In fact excepting a few iPhone imports to be done, my most recent folder in my Lightroom catalogue is from way back in January.
So, it’s about time this changed…I’m preparing to go on a trip to scout out some abandoned buildings around Horsham. I’ve taken a strong interest in graveyards, churches and derelict buildings recently, partly as a result of a lovely book; Beauty in Decay (see my Goodreads profile, right), and partly because I’ve been reviewing a number of my images with HDR, and my favourite ones have been the old buildings and churchyards. Perhaps I’ll get to publishing my own book one day….
In the mean time, there are a number of World War II pillboxes around Horsham, forming part of the Arun Line, the first inland line of defences against the Germans after the coastal defences. I hope today to be able to find and photograph at least one of them
