She was built to last!

I never get bored taking pics of this Structure. It is Brighton & Hove’s, West Pier. The recent vicious storms have taken another large chunk of the structure. She still hangs on though. This was a fully functioning pleasure Pier in the early seventies, I can remember it vividly. A sad state of affairs now!

Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning Sunshine

Working in Peacehaven, near Brighton, East Sussex, UK, today. Could not resist watching this Sunrise around 7.30am. From the cliff top in Peacehaven. This shot looks East towards, the Newhaven Harbour wall and the Famous Seven Sisters Cliffs in the distance, with this beautiful stretch of water called the English Channel that separates us from France and the rest of Europe. The grey dot on the horizon to the right of the rising sun is, the Newhaven to Dieppe ferry.

Seen better days!

Seen better days!

Came across this little fella today, would have been nicer if he was bobbing and weaving and doing his stuff, alas he wasn’t. I was working at the “Chealsea flower show Gold Medal” award winning McBeans Orchids, just outside Lewes, East Sussex.
The Stoat (Mustela erminea) was probably seeking prey within the greenhouses, may have consumed something nasty. Sad to see a beautiful animal like this, just lying motionless….

Coned out of his head!

Coned out of his head!

This isn’t the best photo in the world of Cone Head, but I snapped it on the hurry. Should it stay or should it go, the cone that is! This statue and cone is a popular subject at the moment. Being a grumpy old git, well not that old, this always makes me smile when I see it. It is a constant battle between the authorities and Joe public. It gets my VOTE to stay, it needs to stay. Its a Glasgow thing…. and that’s coming from a Southerner
