A traditional Maypole. Often found in May funnily enough - a tall pole with ribbons from it - and a dance performed around it - Hmmmmm England eh?

I'm afraid I've had to go back and backfill a few posts today as i just got spammed out of existence - so I've had to put the validation code on all posts fropm today - sorry! This is a picture of the entrance to Brighton Dome which you can read all about by clicking on the link - pretty isn't it?

I couldn't resist it - a lot of the other daily photo blogger community post a regular shot of "graffiti" in their city/town - I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon ;)

I don't know your thoughts on blacking-up as it's called but wandering around Brighton today were all sorts of colourful characters from different morris dancing groups. This one here is from Hunters Moon Morris - all very british don't you know!

The FA Cup, probably the the most exciting event in the footballing calendar - and what a match! Watched by over 11m people sadly it wasn't West Ham's day in the sun although they should be proud. Liverpool FC won the match on penalties.....

My team, Birmingham City FC, however were relegated this season and as a season ticket holder I'll have to endure lower league football next season :(

Taken last weekend at the children's parade this colourful photo has a bit of movement which was by default rather than design - but the little girl on the left looks like she is having a ball :)

The fountain in the Stein - just nr. the pier and seafront this impressive statue has yet to start this spring - the council turn it off every winter - but it keeps getting later and later before they switch it back on.

The entrance to the Spiegeltent and garden, a temporary venue created just for the Brighton festival - am going on Saturday night for an evening of drinking and debauchery!

Haven't posted a picture of the pavillion in a while so here's a picture of the main entrance - get an eyeful as this will be under scaffolding for the next 1 1/2 yrs so I'm told!

The art deco frontispiece of Shoreham airport has been used in many films as well as the interior...

Summer had threatened to show earlier in the week but true to form the clouds closed in this weekend but it didn't dampen the Children's Parade yesterday.

Saturday, May 06, 2006

Today marks the start of the Brighton Festival and to kick it all off the Children's Parade was a huge success this morning - there were over 108 different schools and floats participating ( I think the theme was food & drink). I've posted other pics over at brighton daily photo extra. Shame about the weather but the kids didn't seem to mind they had a ball. My own son will be participating next year and I can't wait!!!!!!!

A shameless piece of self PR today I'm afraid - it's quite a landmark but the old photography kit is up for sale - I'm permanently digital from here on in....this lot can be found on ebay by clicking here...let's get digital!

Out and about this evening I spotted this really well lit and quite eye catching window display - it looks like summer really is on it's way!

The famous spiegeltent goes into construction ready for the Brighton Festival...very exciting, very exciting indeed......

Another shop in the North Laines is this musical equipment vendor. It's a busy shop in Brighton as everyone either wants to be a DJ or be in a band - everyone's a wannabe!!!

Is it summer yet? Another cold and wet Bank Holiday weekend here in Brighton :( - it was even a bit foggy this morning as this shot shows of the seafront road. Brrrrrrr........
