War Memorial

Saltwell Park, Gateshead

We were sat in the rather nice cafe housed inside Saltwell Towers within the park in Gateshead, enjoying scones and tea when I spotted this elegant war memorial through a distant window. The statue is dedicated to the men from Gateshead who lost their lives in the 1899-1902 South African War, perhaps one of our colonial campaigns that is easily forgotten.

I liked the viewpoint and thought it would make an interesting study in black and white.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82mm. lens, 1/10 second, f19, iso 400
