the square in the Lanes


All roads in the Lanes seem to lead to the Square, it's changed quite a lot over the 11 or so years I've been here in Brighton - but the vibe remains the same - a tourist hotspot always see the visitors to Brighton looking a little confused as to where to go next - I'd suggest maybe the pub - The Pumphouse.

Psalm on the hill


OK so I know it's a little arty farty! But I like this. It's a stone enscription I found up at Devil's Dyke - and completely by accident got the female silhouette in the background - looking like maybe she's ruminating on the psalm.........

School Sports Day


Braving the inclement weather - and delayed for the 3rd week - this time Sports Day went ahead - much to the delight of all the kids

Jazz in the lanes


It's just great when the sun's shining in Brighton - on my (regular) trip for lunch at Pret I pass this happy scene of people eating outdoors to the wafting mellow sounds of Jazz in the Lanes.

Festival of Speed Goodwood

Just along the coast from Brighton is Goodwood where the festival of speed is held.

A cracking day out where all sorts of classic vehicles and bikes race the track and you can get down and dirty with the vehicles in the paddocks.

This mean machine pictured is "Captain America" a replica of the bike used by Peter Fonda in the American Classic - Easy Rider

On Saturday - Peter Fonda was at Goodwood and rode this machine up the track! Awesome.

As Brighton goes through it's mini heatwave - day three according to the met office.

Making maximum use of the weather here's this view of Brighton seafront as seen from the sea!

Spinal Tap at Wembley Arena


I couldn't resist posting the (albeit poor) photo taken from inside Wembley Arena last night whilst Spinal Tap were on stage performing Stonehenge - looks like this time they got it right!
