Brighton Town

I live in Brighton and I have lived here for just under 1 year. I moved from London to live in Brighton because I wanted to live in a house close to the sea. Brighton is an amazing little City on the South Coast of England. In fact, they call it London by the sea. I love Brighton because it has so much to offer. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. There is also the added attraction of being on the coast. Generally, coastal areas in the UK tend to be a bit dated and scummy but not Brighton. The beach at Brighton changes every different day you visit. In the winter the waves crash against the coast and in the summer it is like a still swimming pool.

There are two piers in Brighton. There is the West Pier (http://www.westpier.co.uk/) which was burnt down and is now a listed location meaning that it can’t be demolished. The other pier is a paradise of arcade machines and fairground rides (http://www.brightonpier.co.uk/). They do great doughnuts and fish and chips on the pier and the views are fantastic. My favourite restaurant in Brighton is a sushi restaurant called Moshi Moshi (www.moshimoshi.co.uk). It has won several awards for great food.

A great place to visit is the Royal Pavillion which is a historical building in the centre of Brighton.You should definitely come to Brighton one day. I commute to London everyday and it only takes an hour on the train. I know after a hard day in the City that I can go home and soak in the seaside atmosphere! I used slide film in my Color splash for most of the shots. I also used a fisheye for the beach huts.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
