Reflections, Angels and Car Parks

Image number one for today is called "Illuminated Sands". It's a great shot of Brighton (South Coast of England) taken from it's famous pier. An unusually low tide revealed sand that we normally do not get to see causing the entire seafront to reflect and shimmer in the darkening evening sky.

"Cold Stare" is the second image for today and is a black and white close up of the brass "Angel Lectern" in St Paul's Church on West Street, Brighton (England). It was designed by John Hardman Powell (1827-1895) who assisted Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812—1852) who was an architectural draughtsman and topographical watercolourist (arguably the greatest British architect, designer and writer of the nineteenth century) with his many orders for stained glass — in particular for the Houses of Parliament.

"Journey to the Center of the Earth" is today's last image. If you look hard enough it's possible to find beauty in pretty much everything. this image is pushing it somewhat but I loved the battle between light and shadow as they both bounced of the walls. This is a closed underground car park below a supermarket in the city center of Brighton (England). It had an air of mystery to it and looked to me as though it could be going on forever round and round and further on down and down.
