The War Memorial and Village Pond at Rottingdean by 

Centrally shown is the war memorial built to commemorate Rottingdean’s soldiers who died during the two world wars. The war memorial is in the form of a memorial cross standing on a plinth on a two-stepped base on a paved area on the village green by the pond. There are 37 surnames with one Christian name only for World War 1. A further 29 names have been added for World War 2. Rottingdean is a small village near Brighton in West Sussex, UK. This photograph was taken from a wooden bench against the flint wall of the “Kipling Garden” Rudyard Kipling lived for a time in a house to the right of the scene in this image.

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at
