Angels are watching you

This weekend, I have finally mastered the art of copyrighting my photographs, so here is one from last year: Angels of Tunbridge Wells.

I have held back from publishing my images because when I have they have been stolen and pasted on Pinterest without accreditation  or acknowledgement. The beauty of our open spaces for memorial and reflection are for everyone to enjoy, however the images I share constitute hours of chasing the light, in the early morning. Therefore I was not happy for others to take my images with a click and share, because essentially the images are presented through my viewpoint and are my composition.

  For many, the cemetery is not a place of choice, but for me it is a place of peace and beauty and I never feel alone or uneasy. I take comfort from the elaborate Victorian and Edwardian monuments which are there to be admired. Knowing that the capturing of their appearance on camera is acceptable because the Victorians wanted to be remembered, admired and acknowledged is enough for me to record them in this century.
