Black & White in Brighton

Hello! Some more photos from my recent trip to Brighton. I wasn’t happy with the colouring in some of these photos so I adjusted them to monochrome. It was quite novel editing in black and white! I nearly always use monochrome film with my analog cameras, but this is the first time I’ve used that effect for photos taken with my DSLR. Brighton is a really colourful place so it’s kind of an odd choice to go for monochrome, but I quite like how they’ve turned out!

These last photos show you what I bought from Brighton, an idea completely stolen from my pal Bel in this post. I’m not really into haul posts but I remember thinking that was a nice thing to include about her trip. Holiday souvenirs and mementos are a bit different to a standard shopping trip in my book. I picked up three pieces of sheet music, a black and gold velvet skirt, vintage yellow and white blouse, graphics pens, medal, 1930s teapot, paprika, lemongrass, bay leaves and ground curry leaves. I cook a lot of curry!

P.S. If you haven’t already, I’d really appreciate it if you could give my facebook page a quick like here (it’s different to the blog page!) – many thanks for your support! Also, I have a huge exciting announcement to come in the next post…!! xx

    I loved the black and white pictures, you two are lovely in the pics! I loved the bikes, so colorful! And all that you are telling about Brighton – then the more I want to go there! I love teapots too, I have some in my kitchen (as miniatures :) And curry is delicious! I saw Fly me to the moon among your shopping, and loved it! I know many people make fun of me, but I loved old movies with old songs, that I call classics! Such a nice post, dear Laila, I love your posts and the way you write!
