Just a sprinkling

Princes Avenue 8am; only a little of the white stuff has fallen this close to the sea.

One for sorrow, two for joy;
Three for a girl, four for a boy;
Five for silver, six for gold;
Seven for a secret, never to be told;
Eight for a wish, nine for a kiss;
Ten for a bird that's best to miss.

Doing it freehand

Straight sections of letters are painted with the help of a metal bar so the lines don't wobble; curves are done freehand.

Repainting road signs

Work is under way locally to repaint faded and worn road signs - this is one of the disabled parking bays outside the Federation of Disabled People in Hove Street.

A long autumn 2

Pembroke Crescent taken on the same day as yesterday's photo. According the the Met Office, temperatures are set to plummet later in the week - that should see off the last of the leaves.

A long autumn 1

Many of the trees near where I live haven't dropped their leaves yet in spite of some fairly appalling weather over the last few weeks. This is what the junction of New Church Road and Sackville Road looked like yesterday.

Much the same

This photograph, looking down Hove Street towards the sea, was taken almost a year ago and the scene looks much the same today. Damp, cold and wintery, although the sea is calmer this morning (that's due to change because a thunderstorm is forecast for early afternoon) and there are roadworks near the traffic lights.

Constantly changing clouds

The clouds were amazing yesterday; constantly changing shape, texture and colour throughout the day like a slide show. I took this photograph from my balcony at 11.20am and lots more during the afternoon.

Here's one we made earlier

Grey, cold and damp today; here's a lovely summer picture to cheer us all up....

Glorious colour 4

The lower section of the window. Irritatingly, I didn't make a note of the dedication; I'll remedy that soon.

Glorious colour 1

I was here yesterday with the Brighton Craft Guerrilla. This beautiful stained glass window is across the stairwell on the first floor. I couldn't get a shot of the whole of the window because the stairs got in the way, but I did manage a few detail shots which should give you a good idea of the rest of the design. This is the central panel flanked by St Mark and St Luke.
