Week 12 of 366

Some days it’s a breeze but on others, ideas seem to freeze.

St Leonards on Sea

I’ve been wandering around my ‘hood and looking at the decay of the architectural heritage bequeathed us by Decimus Burton and the Victorians. Oh, they did like to be beside the seaside… beside the sea. Ironic that the very cause to instigate such grandeur should also be the cause of its demise – maintaining these weather beaten buildings is a relentless battle that is seemingly being lost at the moment.

366 A photo a day Week 11

Skies are still mostly grey. Horrible wind from the North. Not really inclined to spend any amount of time outdoors. And, mostly it’s showing in the subjects of these photos.

Hastings Half Marathon 2016

It’s the 32nd Hastings Half Marathon and the event gets more popular every year. Three and a half thousand people, athletes and fun runners collecting money for charities ran the 13.5 miles today.

Nice, positive coverage by ITV here

The Source skate park

They opened a new BMX/skate park and. although really not in the age range they are probably targeting, I had to go and take a look. What a fantastic resource for our youngsters – and for the town.

It’ll be a great place to go and practice sports photography – I’m quite pleased with these shots as it’s something that I’ve not done a lot of, but…. maybe could do better.

Well done to this up and coming local business – I hope you go from strength to strength.

Week 9 of 366

I’ve been posting these daily on Facebook (because it’s easy and I’m lazy) but I’d like to  keep a record here, where it’s nice to see them all together.
