On holy ground

A walking tour of south-east London with Matthew Adams yesterday, to shoot some pictures for a feature he's writing for the New Humanist magazine. His piece is about the succour that can be drawn from sacred sites, even for a non-believer, and we began at the lovely wooded church of St Augustine's at One Tree Hill and proceeded on foot from there. Apart from a brief blaze of low sun in mid afternoon the day was overcast and chill, but the trees were full of birds and everywhere we saw signs of spring.
