Today’s Autumn Equinox marks the end of summer and the beginning of one of my favourite times of year for taking photographs and admiring the  beautitiful palette of  colours  created by winter creeping ever closer….

Safe as Houses

Posted by Sara on June 11, 2009

It’s that time of the year again – when the air is full of the flutter of tiny wings as our city’s avian population find ever inventive spaces to raise their little ones in relative peace and quiet alongside their human counterparts. This one on Western rd is my favourite nesting site so far:

Of course if you’re a very posh bird you get your own box made for you, with built in telly to boot. For updates and web cam on Brighton’s very own resident Peregrine falcons at Sussex Heights – click here

Ghost Photo

Posted by Sara on April 16, 2009

I took this photo last weekend when I visited the Sea Life centre; it’s a reconstruction of the beak of an octopus. Even though I’m telling myself it must be caused by a reflection in the glass, or some other such anomaly, I find the image of the eye in the upper left hand side wonderfully eerie. I’ve not doctored the picture in any way and I do not recognise the eye as my own or any one else’s who was with me at the time. It seems perfectly placed to create a rather fantastical, though menacing, looking creature. Sea Life is after all reputed to be haunted so who knows….?
