Wordless Wednesday: Ruins of West Pier, Brighton [2017]


My sister Sara and I, took a trip down to Brighton for 2 days. We used to live in East Sussex and hadn't seen the city of Brighton for 14 years! This is the ruins of the West Pier which was opened in 1866, and it closed to the public in 1975 ( which was the year I was born in the town itself) due to safety reasons. Sold to a trust in 1983, it was to be 10 years later in March of 2003 that the pier suffered an arson attack, and the picture above is all that's left of this iconic structure now marked by buoys. The Victorian entrance is still standing with a restaurant and a observatory suspended on a pole to view the seafront, which is owned by British Airways.

Photo taken with my ipod touch of Monty meowing at me, because I was talking to him on my daily walk in September this year, I didn't want him to follow me too far up the lane.

Weekend In Black and White: Rome Protest [2017]


When we arrived in Rome this summer, we stumbled across a demonstration whilst flitting between the museums in the city and trying to keep cool in the heatwave that the city was experiencing so early in the year. The protest was about the privatisation of public transport, they were complete with megaphones, loud Italian rap and balloons. This is a black and white rendition of two photographs I managed to capture of the people when they went by, whilst staying within the shade.

Skywatch Friday: Clock Tower, Gibraltar


Looking up at the clock tower of the the church of St Mary The Crowned on the island of Gibraltar this summer, it had the most annoying chime we had ever heard before. Despite the fact that drivers drive on the Spanish side of the roads, the island is in fact part of the United Kingdom and all the signage wouldn't look out of place in London. Unfortunately we arrived there on a Sunday, so all the shops were shut, the main town reminded me a bit of Brighton but more humid. The island is famous for the rock which dominates the island, and has a colony of Barbary Macaques, due to their growing numbers and their "being a problem" for residence many have now been shipped over and now reside in Blair Drummond Safari Park here in Scotland.
