I have a soft spot for red brick Gothic Revival architecture, the fancier the better. This is the exterior of the Parish Church of St Philip on New Church Road looking at its best set against a brilliant blue winter sky.

Clearing up

Sweeping shingle from the seafront back on to the beach after a high tide.

Near the gate

The entrance to Brighton Museum & Art Gallery is near the gate in yesterday's photo. I do love the contrast between the fanciful buildings and stark winter trees.

I spotted this rather gorgeous kitty relaxing on a pile of recycling boxes outside a flat in Brunswick Square.

Sixties living

There are lots of Sixties blocks of flats near where I live. Dolphin Court is on the corner of Vallance Road and Hove Street.

S'all gone

The snow's finally disappeared from my tiny corner of the world and life can get back to normal. I like these bare trees at the bottom of Brunswick Square; they've been battered into shape by strong winds blowing off the sea.

The big freeze

It's barely got above freezing over the last couple of days and the cold weather's set to continue. This was Hove Street yesterday.

We have snow again

Princes Avenue looks like this today. Yesterday was a stay-at-home, seriously cold snow day - thank goodness for handknits and thermal underwear :o)

This one's my favourite

Walk, that is. Out of my flat, down Hove Street, across Kingsway, down Hove Street South to the sea, then turn left along the seafront and walk into Brighton.

Not much better

The opposite side of Grand Avenue isn't much better, but at least there's more variety.

Queen Victoria gazes out to sea at the bottom of Grand Avenue. She's flanked on her right by enormous blocks of mid-60s flats.

Hello 2010

Sunshine sparkling on the sea - a perfect start to the new year.
