A day trip to Brighton

I always knew when I made the trip over to the UK it would involve a visit to Brighton. It’s the place I’ve always fancied living in if I ever make the big move over. I visited on what was probably a perfect, sunny Tuesday. I hit the Pier early to avoid crowds, wandered the lanes and checked out very busy North Street. 

I’m not quite sure what I thought Brighton would be like, but it was certainly different to what I expecting. Although it was quite a relaxing and interesting place, it made me realise how spoilt we are with our beaches back home in Australia. We’ve got so many amazing waterfronts at home, finding one without masses of tourists isn’t a struggle. I think Brighton felt a little bit too much like a carnival for my liking, and I’m not sure it’s somewhere I’d like to live. Which actually, makes me all the more glad I visited first! 

If I go again, I’d really like to explore more of the Hove waterfront area and maybe have a mate with me so I can find a cute spot to enjoy a summer bevy without feeling like a loner (I did plenty of that in London!).

Paris, July 2019

I can think of much worse places to overcome jetlag than Paris in Summer. This city seems to have become a place I travel to incidentally and spend 48 hours or less in (I’ve done this three times now!). So, I did what I always love doing when I travel, spent my time walking around with my camera in search of food. Here are some of my better shots!

A Week at Home

Exactly a fortnight ago I decided to shoot a roll of film in a week. While this might sound like no mean feat to some (myself included if I’m travelling or at an event or special occasion), I’ve long fallen into the trap of leaving a half-finished roll in my camera, feeling uninspired and as though my day-to-day in Newcastle is unremarkable and un-photoworthy.

So, I decided to challenge that. This particular week involved lots of walking around town, some wining and dining with my sister and visiting my parents. I’m quite happy with the results!
