England - London - Church cross on Red Post Hill.
The cross on the wall of Herne Hill's United Reform Church and the direction sign post (plus its shadow) of Red Post Hill, south London. Echoed by a low winter sun, we see the three repeating crosses as a visual pun, a joke of three same shapes but with different meanings. The exterior of this church is from the 1970s period of architecture but the red post is a recent addition, instigated by locals to return the original landmark for this road junction, a marker for walkers and horses on old byways, paths and tracks going back many hundreds of years. On the post we see that Brixton is one mile away and the neighbouring areas of Herne Hill and Tulse Hill and Sydenham are close too.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
