Rest & Shade, Artizana and Sunset & Trees

"Rest & Shade" :- Brighton & Hove promenade and seafront is full of Victoriana and history. It's impossible to venture anywhere without stumbling over something of historical interest or importance. The seating and shelter that you see in this image has provided rest and shade for those walking along "the prom" since the 1800's and it's one of many that you will find on the seafront overlooking the English Channel. Interestingly enough once you get to the boundary where Brighton finishes and Hove takes over the design of the Victorian seating booths changes slightly. To the right of this image you can clearly see the remains of the old West Pier.

"Artizana" :- Shot and captured in Sydney Street which is part of the North Laines in Brighton, England. During the week the area is relatively busy but open to traffic. However, the weekend's very busy with tourists, day trippers and locals milling about and some of the roads close to traffic altogether and the shops put many of their goods outside giving the place a slight "Portobello" feel. This image was taken during a hot spell back in May 2013 and show some clothes and bags of a rail outside Artizana.

"Sunset & Trees" :- Early evening on the bank of Lake Siutghiol in Mamaia, a suburb of Constanta in Romania. Earlier in the day I'd stood on the shore of the Black Sea looking out at the constant stream of cargo ships on the horizon so this view at the lake was a much more picturesque and pleasant way to watch the daylight fade.
