Barn and Bench, Pea Souper and Yum Yum Ninja

"Barn and Bench" :- This image was shot and captured in the village of Piddinghoe in the Lewes District of East Sussex, England. The village is in the valley of the River Ouse and I'd wandered down to the river for a look around when I came across this barn and shaded bench. Unlike many of the villages in Sussex Piddinghoe does not appear in the Domesday Book but a manor by the same name is listed as belonging to William de Warenne (5th Earl of Surrey) in 1220.

"Pea Souper" :- I have photographed the old Victorian iron supports of the ruined West Pier (Brighton, England) many times but never looking up towards the Kingsway coast road with the English Channel behind me. Recently Brighton was shrouded in a heavy and thick sea mist and I travelled into the city especially to try and capture the surreal and moody atmosphere that sometimes descends on the seaside resort. So here's a rare shot of Brighton through the iron supports whilst being hidden by a sea mist.

"Yum Yum Ninja" :- Within Brighton's twisting and turning narrow 18th century "The Lanes" you will a restaurant called "Yum Yum Ninja". The restaurant is a Pan Asian kitchen and Izakaya (a type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food ). I have been informed that the bar upstairs serves Sakes, Japanese whiskys & Asian influenced cocktails that are unparalleled within the rest of the city. I have yet to dine there but have only heard good about the menu and food available.
