Uncertain Times

As the old Year departs and the New year yet to be born there is always the room for hope that things might suddenly change at midnight and everything will  be shiny new again.

Alas promises are soon forgotten as soon as they are made and life carry’s on the only real difference has to be in the change of number from 2010 to 2011.

Perhaps that sounds to cynical ?

Where ever you and however you celebrate I wish you a Happy New Year in these Uncertain Times

A Day In Brighton

Yesterday saw me in Brighton ,always a busy place and yesterday was no exception with sales going on  and the in between time of Christmas and New Year,so lots of people on Holiday!Only the one photo of the station taken around 11:20 in the morning on a rather dampish  greyish soggy misty day,hence the lights still on in the station.

I like Brighton station and in particular the curve of the roof

A Bracing Walk Along Seashore

Let us the walk along the shore this Boxing Day (in UK), a breath of fresh air to blow the cobwebs and excesses of Christmas away.

The sound of the waves and the cry of the gulls
