What catches your eye?

It’s often fascinating to look back at old photos and just to notice what caught your eye.  Today’s photo offering is another one from my Hertford collection, taken several years ago, and it shows the rather beautiful war memorial in the centre of the town.  A simple stone monolith is topped with an elegant stag, gazing out across the houses from which so many men set off to war between 1914-18.  How many times do we walk past local memorials without even a second glance?

These days, of course, I am photographing a lot of WW1 sites and memorials as part of the Remembrance Image Project, but this photo was captured long before I’d even thought of embarking on such a project.  It’s interesting to think that even back then, I was noticing the vestiges of that conflict with sufficient interest to create a picture.
