Brighton Rocks


Yesterday, I returned from my short holiday in Brighton. It was a brilliant few days. I'm so glad I decided to go there. The weather was not exactly great, but it didn't bother me too much as I found plenty of things to do. It did mean, however, that I didn't take a huge amount of photos with my DSLR though, because I often needed both hands to hold up my umbrella in the crazily strong wind! In fact, it was so strong on Tuesday morning that I got a bit of a soaking when a big wave splashed against the pier, hehe.

Some of the lovely/random things I bought in Brighton, plus various tickets. I also bought the zig-zag rug that everything is on. 

Here are a few of the fun things I enjoyed doing...

♥ Going to see Chvrches at the Brighton Dome. Wow, what a stunning venue that is! ♥ Eating dinner at Casalingo ♥ Wandering along the pier, taking photos and eating hot doughnuts (not at the same time) ♥ Going to see Mercury Rev at the Komedia, which was a very intense experience because they played in a tiny basement. It was so loud, I'm amazed I still have ears(!) It was so awesome, though. I love their new album so much ♥ Drinking lots of cups of coffee/tea/chai lattes in various cafes. Brighton is so great for independent cafes :D ♥ Going shopping and going shopping again, and going shopping again (you get the picture). I was very happy to find a Sass and Belle shop as I love their stuff ♥ Meeting up with Fliss for a day of wandering, and eating, and shopping, and taking silly photos in the retro photobooth in Snoopers Paradise, hehe ♥ Eating a three-course meal at Terre à terre (the Rosti Revisited is to die for!) ♥ Going round the Pavillion ♥

Here is one digital shot I took outside the Pavillion after looking around. The sun made a very brief appearance that morning!


The rest of my digital photos are all from the pier and the beach...














I also shot about one and a half rolls of LomoChrome Purple film in my Reader's Digest Panoramic camera. Hopefully, I'll get those rolls developed soon and will share some of those here too. I don't have the highest hopes for them because the weather was so dull, but you never really know with film so *fingers crossed* some will come out OK.
