Starlings, and selfie

Sunday 4th February 2018, 4.55pm (day 2,355)

Brighton beach starlings, 4/2/18

A day in Brighton, a day of meetings and non-meetings. The person I was supposed to meet didn’t turn up. Then I met someone nice I did not expect to meet. Then I met a bunch of hypocritical Brexit voting Daily Mail reading obnoxious Nazis in my hotel bar in the evening. Then there were the starlings heading to roost on the pier. Maybe the lady taking a selfie (or possibly a shot of the West Pier, depending on which direction her camera was pointed in) could have turned her head to the left a bit to witness this impressive natural phenomenon. But it’s all about perspective isn’t it.

On Brighton beach

Sunday 17th December 2017, 9.35am (day 2,306)

Brighton beach, 17/12/17

I don’t just like spending time in Brighton because of the football, you know. Far from it.

At the Amex stadium

Saturday 16th December 2017, 2.55pm (day 2,305)

Amex flag, 16/12/17

Welcome back to the Amex Stadium, Brighton, venue for several previous shots: all of which were preludes to victories by the mighty Brighton and Hove Albion. Today’s score versus Burnley: 0-0, so I lose my 100% win-only record there, but still, a point’s a point.

Alley off Trafalgar Street, Brighton

Sunday 10th September 2017, 10.40am (day 2,208)

Brighton alley, 10/9/17

I do like side streets. Particularly in an attractive place like Brighton, where the graffiti artists have talent and vision, on a relatively sunny morning.

Three-nil!

Saturday 9th September 2017, 4.20pm (day 2,207)

Three-nil, 9/9/17

Brighton and Hove Albion’s players celebrate the third goal in today’s 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion, their first win of the season and first in the top division of English football since 1983. And Joe and I were there to see it. Much fun was had by all.

Brighton Pier

Sunday 26th February 2017, 12 noon (day 2,012)

Brighton Pier, 26/2/17

To conclude a very good weekend in Brighton…. The half-marathon is finishing off behind me (with the wife due in at any moment) but I have pictured that before, so here is a different scene, one of the city’s most famous buildings, crowned by soaring seagulls, which seems appropriate….

Russell Square, Brighton

Friday 24th February 2017, 5.05pm (day 2,010)

Russell Square, Brighton, 24/2/17

Here we are in Brighton — big football match to go to tomorrow and, oh yeah, Clare’s annual jog up and down the sea front in the Brighton half marathon. Nice to get down to the south coast before the sun went down today. Here’s to a good weekend…. the anticipation of which is somehow epitomised in this photo for me.

Balcony, Hotel Pelirocco

Saturday 22nd October 2016, 11.45am (day 1,885)

Pelirocco balcony, 22/10/16

On a gloriously sunny Saturday, there are many worse places to be than by the seaside in Brighton, believe me.

Chequers pub, Brighton

Friday 21st October 2016, 10.35pm (day 1,884)

Chequers pub, 21/10/16

It’s Clare’s birthday on Wednesday, one of those significant ones — or rather, one that we culturally choose to assign significance to because it has a zero at the end. Anyway, the celebrations are taking place in various locations over the next few days and start this weekend with her & I going down to Brighton, where this shot is taken. It’s a mess I know, but so are most things by 10.35pm on a Friday night out; the time makes this the latest shot on the blog since June 2015.

Whitehawk Ultras

Saturday 9th April 2016, 3.15pm (day 1,689)

Whitehawk Ultras, 9/4/16

One reason for going down south was to attend a game at Brighton & Hove’s other football team, Whitehawk FC. Why? Why not? They have an active set of Ultras, anti-racist, anti-sexist, a no bad language policy (exemplified by the chant, “the referee’s a… referee”) and the atmosphere put many much bigger clubs to shame. Right result too — Whitehawk 3, Wealdstone 0. Perhaps I have just found my second team.
