the devil (or the beauty?) is in the detail

There are plans afoot for some interesting commemorations of the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Lewes (the ‘birth of English democracy’), involving the Lewes Youth Theatre and the local college drama department. Much more on that very soon, as I will be charting the event as it unfolds. The documenting starts with the blank canvas, or rather the before, to be followed up by the during and the after. The location is the site of the old railway sidings, designated as our local nature reserve. I walked there a couple of weeks ago and it was almost entirely flooded. Now the water has mostly receded so that the ancient drainage ditches can be seen again and the land is soggy but not sodden. I have to admit to being drawn, again, to reflections in the water on such a bright, still day. The white chalk cliffs that rise above Lewes were particularly startling to see mirrored in the water. The photos are really more about the detail than the overview of the place, but I couldn’t help it. That is what captured my attention. More on this project can be found here.
