Running and hating it.

I hate every minute of it.

Please make it worth my while ;)

Shoreham by Sea


Probably for the first time this year - these novice sailors got their lifejackets on and went out on the River Adur for a spot of sailing.

Giant table and chairs...


....A few weeks ago I managed to get around the Tate Modern for the first time. This is a giant table and chairs (no title) by the artist Robert Therrien. It got nothing to do with Brighton, sorry, I just liked it ;)

Brighton and Hove Photography (Shameless Plug) for our business.



At Brighton & Hove Photography we specialise in creating amazing family portrait photography at affordable prices.

We believe a picture is worth a thousand words - which is why we want to tell your story through a collection of personal family photos.
Our approach to portrait photography is fun and fresh resulting in images that you will simply love forever. The secret to the best natural looking family photo is happy children and relaxed parents. Our home photography studio offers a safe and familiar "home from home" environment and when you bring a few favourite toys, dressing up outfits and props this helps to make things run smoothly.
As experienced portrait photographers we love taking photos and you will love the photos we take. We have a genuine enthusiasm for what we do and a great pride in our work. We never underestimate the value of listening to our clients and work together to create your very own photoshoot.

We offer a contemporary, fresh approach to family portrait photography resulting in amazing photos, at affordable prices.
In addition we strive to offer the best customer service in East and West Sussex

Casablanca Jazz Club




The scene of many a late night! "Two floors, two sounds, too damn funky is the strapline" for the Casablanca jazz club on Middle Street.

My own version might run "Too drunk, too tired.....too bad you're trying those dance moves old man!"

See loads of GREAT live music down here though over the years - my faves being Witches Brew

The Ship Hotel


Has a striking red frontispiece which I couldn't resist applying the cheesy "bring some colour out of B&W" shot!

The Lanes Armoury


Perhaps one of the most exciting curios in the Lanes in Brighton is the shop The Lanes Armoury here you can see antique swords, arms, collectibles and Napoleonic weaponry. I've often wondered who buys this stuff? But I would like to own a wild west pistol or a suit of armour - perhaps it's my age?

If you're here - go see it.

Down in the lanes you can grab a coffee and occupy this chair in the sun.
