Plastic icecream sign against blue sky

Day 175 – Icecream Days

“It was the color of someone buying you an ice cream cone for no reason at all.” ~ Lemony Snicket I don't quite know what that colour is but I do definitely know that feeling. There is something warm and gentle about that moment when for no other reason than you can, someone buys you an ice cream cone. In the UK that would be from the Icecream Van which you find all over the place. One of the things that bemused Michael when he first came to the UK was that no matter what the weather you can find…

Day 165 – Hint of sunlight

"We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts." ~ William Hazlitt I think there is a lot of truth to this statement. We don't just see nature, we experience it and as such a photograph can only hint at that moment. You can not show the bird song, or the buzz of the bees, or the warmth of the sun on your skin, or the gentle movement of the leaves as the breezes flows through them. You can't capture those in a photo but you can definitely hint at them and hopefully if…

London building brutalist style

Day 163 – Brutalist

"Brutalist architecture arouses passion and fury in equal measure. Of all the styles of housing in London, none is more polarising." ~ Kate Watson-Smyth It is easy to look at this building, a perfect example of Brutalistic architecture, and see something ugly. It is harsh and rough and imposing and yet, or maybe because of that, I find something hugely appealing about it. It is unapologetic, function over form, and that grittiness feels powerful and strong to me. Brutalist architecture flourished in post war London with the need for rebuilding and more housing. Many of those buildings are now in a…

London city skyline higher

Day 150 – High Towers

"I don’t know what London’s coming to — the higher the buildings the lower the morals." - Noël Coward I wonder what Noël Coward would make of London today. I bet he never envisioned it would have such a towering skyline and that much of the London that he knew would be completely gone to be replaced by men in suits dealing in obscene sums of money from buildings that reached up into the sky.

Roller coaster Dorney Park rise and fall

Day 142 – Rise and fall

“With peaks of joy and valleys of heartache, life is a roller coaster ride, the rise and fall of which defines our journey. It is both scary and exciting at the same time.” ~ Sebastian Cole I don't like roller coasters. It is just not my kind of excitement however my children love the damn things but they don't seem to mind my lack of participation as I am always happy to be the 'looker after' of everyone's stuff whilst they go and defy the laws of gravity.

Fasacde of the Grand hotel Brighton

Day 132 – Definitely Grand

"The great thing about Brighton is that you can buy your lover a pair of knickers on Victoria Station and in less than two hours have them off again in the Grand Hotel." ~ Keith Waterhouse I suspect you have realised now that this is the front of The Grand Hotel in Brighton. It is an iconic Victorian building (built in 1864) that stands centre stage on the sea front. Grand in both size and looks it architecture has a strong Italian influence. However it maybe most famous for being blown up by the IRA, in 1984, in an attempt…

Day 107 – Clouds that come and go

“The sky and the sun are always there. It's the clouds that come and go.” ~ Rachel Joyce I love a perfectly clear blue sky. It is not something we get a lot of in the UK but when we do they are utterly beautiful but a sky with lots of blue and those fat puffy clouds sailing through it are also fabulous. There is something about those clouds that I find beautiful. Yes they block my beloved sun now and then but they also dance across the sky decorating it with their ever changing shapes.

Ferris wheel, Brighton against the dark moody sky in Black and White, high and low

Day 72 – Highs and lows

“...and where the Ferris wheel carried its passengers high and brought them low and raised them high and brought them low again, as if it were not merely a carnival ride but also a metaphor for the basic pattern of human experience.” ~ Dean Koontz
