Southease Church, April Skies and Multi Color

"Southease Church" :- This is Saint Peter's, an ancient and very small church in the village of southease in Sussex, England. It's been standing steadfast and strong since 966 ad. The Church is unusual in that it has a round tower which makes it one of only three in Sussex (the other two can be found in Piddinghoe and Lewes). Inside the Church you can see Norman windows, a 14th century door, a 16th century porch, an Elizabethan altar table, and Jacobean altar rail, pulpit and pews!

"April Skies" :- The skeletal Victorian iron frame of the West Pier in Brighton (UK) is a subject that I return to time and time again. I remember walking along her decks as a child before she was finally closed to the public in 1975 and the pier still has a place in my heart no matter how she looks. This image of her was captured mid April (2013) from a chilly and somewhat windy beach. I chose to process this image as a black and white and purposely went in hard as the sky, angles and bleakness of it all seemed to call for that approach.

"Multi Color" :- A colorful row of beach huts on Hove promenade with a few buildings behind on Kingsway Road forming the background. The look and feel of Hove seafront is radically different from that of Brighton, it's far more spacious and open. The promenade is much wider and there are also sections of lawn (Hove Lawns) between the promenade and Kingsway.
