Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Buildings

This week’s Fun Foto Challenge from Cee is Buildings.

My first picture is of Embassy Court which is a building found on the Brighton and Hove border.  Originally built-in 1934-35 as an eleven storey block of luxury flats/apartments, the building has now been listed as Grade two by English Heritage.  This piece of Modernist Architecture still divides opinion across the city since its completion in 1935, and continues to generate strong feelings among residents, architectural historians and conservationists.

My second picture shows a number of beach huts nestled into the coast at Mumbles, which is found on the coast of South Wales.  I love the way they look so neat and tidy huddled into the cliff.

My third picture is of Stanmer House, a Grade one listed building on the outskirts of Brighton. Constructed by the French architect Nicholas Dubois in 1722, it incorporates the remains of an earlier house, and was again altered in 1860. Reminds me a little of Downton Abbey and, if you look closely, you can see Toby, my Cardigan Welsh Corgi, who managed to get himself into the shot.  Can you spot him in the picture? Leave me a comment and let me know where he is.

      1. I’m good, I’m only allowed behind the wheel in extreme emergencies due to the concussion. I’ve been working on part 2 of The L.A.W. I have the basic story, just have to do my special touches. If I pull it off this could be cool.

    1. Thanks, Yvonne. Yes, the sky with those clouds looks good doesn’t it. I took that picture back in July when we had our highest temperatures of the summer. It’s great walking along the seafront on those days because you get a cool sea breeze blowing.
