Fair Light, 1930's Bus Stop and Doom and Gloom

"Fair Light" :- All the fun of the fair on the end of the pier. The sunsets on yet another day in the seaside resort of Brighton on the south coast of England. It had been a gloriously hot July day, the beach had been packed with people and Brighton was how it should be with the sounds of laughter, bars, gulls, live music and enjoyment.

"1930's Bus Stop" :- It had been raining hard all afternoon and into the evening. Everyone looked miserable and fed up with the damp, cold air. The lights from traffic glared off the wet roads and seemed to drive home the fact that summer was so far away. One of Brighton's old 1930's Art Deco tram shelters stood like a beacon in the darkness, illuminated from the inside. It's design looks very much in the "Streamline Moderne" style and English Heritage has listed the shelters at Grade II.

"Doom and Gloom" :- Threatening looking clouds roll in over the English Channel as sunlight attempts to break through and highlight the odd patch of sea. In the far distance and out on the horizon it's already raining hard. The temperature dropped and the wind picked up. Reading all the signs I made my way back home before getting caught by it all. This image was taken from the top of the cliffs at Ovingdean Gap on the south coast of England.
