The view from the White Hart Pub

The view from the White Hart Pub at Guestling is one of the nicest in the Hastings area. From there you can see the Ridge and the land that descends from it in its verdant majesty. And yet I've never taken… [more]

Seascape

This seascape was photographed on the beach below the Mary Stanford Lifeboat house, on the same cold morning that I took photos for that very post. That was over two years ago. It had sat unseen on… [more]

Johnson’s Corner

On the A2070 between Brenzett and Hamstreet in Kent an American flag can be seen close to the road. I hadn't noticed it until someone mentioned it to me. It's easy to miss, being as it's a fast road and… [more]

Red Roofed Hut at Rye Harbour

The Red Roofed Hut at Rye Harbour. It's been there as long as I can remember. It's been photographed lots and is also the inspiration for plates, mugs and cup and saucer set. Why is it there? What is… [more]

This showery weather we’ve been having has produced some great skies recently. This rainbow over the De La Warr Pavilion is one of them. Admittedly it’s not as bright as I would have liked, but the it was still raining when I took this. The shots I took of the same scene a few seconds […]

Ghosts of the St Leonards Arch

October 18, 2014

The St Leonards Arch marked the boundary between Burton’s St Leonards and Hastings. The arch, which was built in 1837, was designed to cater for the traffic of its day. As both Hastings and St Leonards expanded, and the numbers of tourists increased the arch was perceived as an obstruction. One night in 1895 it […]

The view from the White Hart Pub at Guestling is one of the nicest in the Hastings area. From there you can see the Ridge and the land that descends from it in its verdant majesty. And yet I’ve never taken a photo of it. Showing unusual foresight, I actually brought my camera to the […]

This seascape was photographed on the beach below the Mary Stanford Lifeboat house, on the same cold morning that I took photos for that very post. That was over two years ago.

Brighton Marina

September 26, 2014

Brighton Marina was built during the 1970’s and has berths for up 1,600 boats. Much like Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne it has a mix of boat facilities, housing, shopping and restaurants. It’s quite pleasant to stroll around, looking at how expensive the yachts are and wondering how people can afford them. But quite pleasant is a […]

On the A2070 between Brenzett and Hamstreet in Kent an American flag can be seen close to the road. I hadn’t noticed it until someone mentioned it to me. It’s easy to miss, being as it’s a fast road and the flag pole is concealed between trees. But it is there. The flag flies over a […]

The Red Roofed Hut at Rye Harbour. It’s been there as long as I can remember. It’s been photographed lots and is also the inspiration for plates, mugs and cup and saucer set. Why is it there?

Silent Drama at Pett Level

August 29, 2014

Windsor Castle

August 23, 2014

Windsor Castle was first built by William the Conqueror, not from stone but of a wooden motte and bailey. Over the centuries various kings have improved and extended the fortifications making it the impressive building it is today. What struck me as I walked through was how clean the exterior looked. The Queen still uses […]
