Lectern & Chair, Dome Complex Door and Watching

"Lectern & Chair" :- This image was captured back in July 2012 within St Nicolas' Church, Shoreham-by-Sea in West Sussex, England. The church itself was founded by Anglo-Saxons at the start of the 10th century and some say that it was built on the site of a 5th-century predecessor. St Nicolas' is listed as a Grade I building for its architectural and historical importance. During my visit I spotted this chair and lectern being hit by the sunlight streaming in through the window. The rich and warm tones along with the shadows on the blue carpet caught my eye. I love the old tiled floor too.

"Dome Complex Door" :- The Dome, Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre are linked to the rest of the Royal Pavilion Estate by an underground tunnel to the Royal Pavilion in Pavilion Gardens , Brighton, England. The entire complex was built in 1805 for the Prince Regent who later became George IV. The riding stables were eventually converted into a concert hall circa 1860. It is one of the only buildings to have both internal and external listings both for the Indian style exterior and the 1930s art deco interior. This is one of the doors at the back of the Dome Complex near the stage door and large 'barn doors' which open up onto the the back of the stage itself thus enabling equipment and stage sets to tbe brought it with ease.

"Watching" :- A different view and perspective of the Coast Guard cottages at Cuckmere Haven on the Sussex coast of England. Most (if not all) shots of these houses are shot looking the other way (East) with the famous seven sisters cliffs forming the backdrop. This view was captured down on the beach and looking towards the West. You can see just how close to the edge the houses actually are. I bet you can feel the walls shaking when there's a rough sea or storm.
