Carling Cup Final 2011


Completely unrelated to Brighton - but related to me - my team Birmingham City is in the Carling Cup Final this weekend, and I'm lucky enough to have tickets to see them play at Wembley.

Their opponents, Arsenal, are a ridiculously talented side and we're the real outsiders - but for me it's about the occasion and my teams first major final at Wembley in 55 yrs!

Come on you Blues!

West pier lilac with starlings

Mooching through some of my back catalogue, and with an absence of new snaps lately I wanted to share this one with you from a few weeks back.

Salvation

I've lived here for over 15 years but have NEVER spotted this on Sackville Road.

A Church and Registered Charity that you just don't hear much about anymore.

Theatre Royal Brighton

This is our lovely Theatre Royal in Brighton opened in the early 1800's commissioned by the Prince Regent (it's really close to his house - the Pavillion).

I'd recommend a visit if you're in town, and even if you can't catch a show - dip in for a swift half at the bar underneath - it's where ALL the stars hang out

;)

West pier at dusk

This was the shot I went down to the seafront to snap yesterday - but got slightly distracted by the tight rope walker!

Still holding its majesty the West Pier still does it for me, and many others it seems as I wasn't alone grabbing this shot.

More pics over at www.brightondailyphotoextra.blogspot.com also featuring a few thousand starlings in murmuration!
