As the train roared back into Brighton station from my 9-5 job, there was nothing better than to walk through the snazzy streets of the city with its colour and smells attacking my senses to wake me up from the monotony of staring at computer screen all day. In the warm dusk glow, I would stroll around to somewhere randomly in the hope of starting up my evening before returning home. Whether it was to North Laines, the sea front, the Brighton Pier or even Kemp Town, I was pleasantly surprised constantly by the atmosphere around me that was jovial, easy going and chilled.
So I thought I would give you a perspective of Brighton through my eyes through the pictures that I have amassed in the four Spring months I had stayed there. Enjoy.
