10 on the 10th - Photo Walk round Brighton

We went into Brighton yesterday afternoon for a photo walk – looking specifically for reflections:

We parked by Brighton Dome, which is the old stables of Brighton Pavilion, hence this Indian style doorway.

We made for the library as we knew there was a lot of glass around there!

We had lunch in one of the many little cafes in the North Lanes, this is right by the Komedia, spot the reflection!  Can you tell which is reflection and which is real in this photo?

Walking down towards the seafront.

We were going to go on the pier, but guess what?  There was a bike show along Marine Parade!  Luckily for me, the majority of the bikes were custom and incredibly shiny!  Some great reflections!!!  It was a bit difficult to focus though as most of the shiny bits were rounded!

Brighton’s latest tourist attraction is a big wheel!  It looks fantastic, and will be open shortly.  It’s right by the pier so will have fabulous views out to sea and inland.  Think I might have to have ago even though I am a bit scared of heights!

Finally we walked up to Edward Street to look at the progress of the new American Express building.  This is a reflection of a nearby block of flats in the new building.  Just in case you can’t read backwards it says ‘Amex makes our lives hell’  a reference to the dust and noise I should think!
