Skimming stones

As a final post before the break I took this at the weekend. You can just make out the stones in "flight" as the boys throw the pebbly beach back into the sea.
Back next Monday 5th Feb. In the meantime - why not check out some of the other Daily Photo sites from the links on the right hand side.

Brighton Seafront in the morning

Taken at dawn this morning, this rest shelter with the sun behind it created a nice orange glow through the windows.

As a heads up I won't be posting from Weds through Sun as it's annual ski holiday time.

Guest photo

Today's photo has been provided by Jayne Eke. She says "As an ex-Brighton girl, I need my Brighton fix every day and thanks to you for providing it!
I live in Holland, but get back 2 x a year for family and friends.

I’m sending you 2 photos I took at the end of the pier. It was a sunny day, but very cold (the end of December)."

Thanks Jayne for this great shot taken from the pier.

Beach Hut Life

Brighton photos Black and White (3/7)
Yes it's the middle of winter but us Brits still battle on regardless and even take the time out for some leisure time down at the Beach Huts. This group spotted taking in a brew and enjoying the fleeting glimpses of the sun.

Brighton Photos Seafront Black and White

The second (2/7) in the B&W series of Brighton Photos. Taken as the last sunshine for this week beamed down on a cold beach this afternoon - the rest of the week is rain apparently :( I've had a couple of responses for the call of other Brighton photo bloggers and watch this space as we could have some guest blogger's entries very shortly.

Black and white (B&W) week

Posted by PicasaKicks off here with this shot taken today from behind the King Alfred Leisure centre in Hove. I know you should always ask permission to take a photo, but I didn't want to wake the guy on the left ;). There's a wonderful symetry to this shot and it works really well in black and white.
Which kicks off a week in Black and White for this Brighton Photos site.
ALSO: Some help needed, I'm thinking of getting the Canon 400D - anyone got one, and recommend it?
ALSO ALSO: My learned colleague Jim Byford suggested that I may invite people to "guest" post on this site (which I think is a wonderful idea) - so if you'd like to post as a guest on the site please contact me (you need to post Brighton Photos of course!)

Sackville Hotel in Hove

This is all that's now left of what was a rather splendid hotel, in it's day, The Sackville Hotel.
Last April it's roof caved in and the building was rendered unsafe. Later that year the whole hotel collapsed, and now is reduced to this pile of rubble, a great brighton photo!

According to all the hotel booking websites you can still book a room there, but I'd advise against it.

Here's a photo of the hotel in it's glory days

Rough seas and storms across the UK

Apols for the abstract nature of this photo - it was taken from the pier in pitch black, using Picasa I've filled in the light and put on a a bit of a tint. All day storms have battered the UK, even on the pier the sea hit this buttress and then showered seawater all over the decking on the pier - I love stormy seas in Brighton.

Brighton Marina Village at night.

Brighton Marina Village. It looks quite cosmo at night down at the Marina, they've strung fairy lights around the fake palm trees (you can just about make them out here).

Underneath the arches

Just off the seafront between the Brighton Pier and the Marina Village is a series of arches, underneath which are a collection of bars, galleries, storage areas - they're just a unique part of Brighton and very iconic, shot here at night on long exposure.

Christmas Tree Graveyard

In Brighton and Hove (and I'm sure many other places in the UK) we have a policy around recycling the Christmas Trees. There are centres all over Brighton where you can take your tired sad droopy old tree to be recycled into mulch for garden! A great idea, but a sad sight to see all these abandoned Xmas Trees in a pile awaiting their fate!Posted by Picasa

The Gingerman, Brighton Restaurant

Probably Brighton's finest restuarant and best kep secret. The atmosphere - intimate, the food - wholesome and adventurous, the service - friendly and respectful. This is easily one of my favourite places in Brighton - we just don't get there enough.

Situated just off Norfolk Square The Gingerman can be reached on 01273 326688 - I can't recommend it enough - If you're in Brighton go along! This is part of Brighton..... Posted by Picasa

Shoreham docks and Simon Jones

I took this rather grim picture of the silos on the seafront at Shoreham Docks. Looking on google for a bit more info on the docks this was my search engine results page

As you can see it's the listings mention the sad story of simon jones

There is a campaign against casualisation of work and the history can be found here

Looking out to sea....

There has been some pretty rough weather here down on the coast for the past few days, so it was nice to see a little blue sky yesterday down on the prom.

The rough sea had thrown pebbles from the beach on to the promenade.

Here looking out to sea is my pal Damon Petken and his beau Lindsey... Posted by Picasa
