Patriotism, Stores & Lines

This is a view of boats moored up within Brighton Marina on the south coast of England. On this particular day there was a heavy sea mist rolling in causing a grey light over everything, it also seemed to make the water very still and calm. The "Union Jack" flags on the railings of the bar / inn on the right were placed as part of the build up to the London 2012 Olympics which is why I've chosen to call the image "Flying the Flag"

Image two for today is titled "Wickerwork". It's a black and white shot of a store in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. Tunbridge Wells (as it's better known) started off life as a spa back in Georgian times (1714 to 1830) and became a tourist resort under the guidance of Richard (Beau) Nash.

Last one from me today is called "Glint". The undercliff walk that runs from Brighton to Saltdean is a favourite subject of mine to photograph. There's always something to point the camera at even if there appears to be nothing much happening. I like this shot because you have the bright sunlight casting the marvelous contrasting black shadows as well as the brightly lit rocks on the beach and shiny metal rail. It's a visual treat.
