Hi Rod - could I use this pic of South Elmham St Michael in an article I'm writing for Suffolk & Norfolk Life about Suffolk's thankful villages please? If you have a higher res image perhaps you could e-mail this to firstname.lastname@example.org - I'll arrange for a picture credit in the mag - thanks - Steve Roberts
Good photo, interesting historical building... just as well the krauts didnt come...
Thanks for that. Do you have any more information? Cannot find any on that web site.
Very few people know that Ella was actually buried in Suffolk.
We don't do brickwork like that any more.
This photograph is now on the 'Village lock-up Group' album, thanks to Rod.
Known as The Cage, it was originally Walton Market Cross and dates to the 1630's and was first used as a lock-up in about 1795. It was moved in 1852 to the corner of Maidstone Road but in 1910 it was purchased by a Chiswick business man who restored it and used it as a recreational shelter for his employees. In 1957 it was returned to Walton and restored by the Council close to its original position for use as a bus shelter.
Yes indeed, the bright low sun was a challenge and required many shots. I do like the effect of the gravestone shadows though. --- Rod
I do so agree with Tony, great play with light and shade, I do not understand people who think that shade and shadows spoil the scene,they give a depth to the scene and a bit of a challenge to the photographer.L/2.
