The Winner of November’s LoveBrighton Flickr Competition


It’s only one week ‘til Christmas – one week! Bonkers. I’m feeling festive, as are all the LoveBrighton team (well, apart from Charlotte :P) and we’re loving the beautiful colours and frosty landscapes being captured and shared in our Flickr group. The theme for December is Love Lights, LoveBrighton, so make sure you gahn doown the toown and get snapping those funky decorations! Also keep an eye out for the Coca Cola truck which will arrive on Brighton seafront’s Madeira Drive on Sunday 23rd December between 1pm and 9pm – a fantastic photo opportunity. *Holidays are coming, holidays are coming…*

But back to the matter at hand; the winner of November’s competition! The theme for November was Love Twilight, LoveBrighton and we had some fantastic entries – the sunset snaps were, like, totes amaze. Check out some of our favourite runner’s up on our LoveBrighton Flickr page. But the all-important winner was Big Grin :) (AKA Josephine), with this eerie shot of Hove seafront in the orange sunset:

We loved the colours and silhouettes of the promenade and bench, and the lights twinkling along the coastline. Josephine won 2 unlimited ride passes on Brighton Pier, as well as dinner in the ‘spiritual home of fish & chips’, the Palm Court restaurant. She’s also been lovely and written about herself and the image as well as her undying love for Brighton & Hove!  

Hi my name is Josephine,
I was surprised to find out that I had won the November Flickr Lover Brighton Competition. The photograph that won was taken on Hove seafront walk; I was taking my young daughter who is eight out for some night-time photography practice having only recently relocated to Brighton, we have been keen to soak up the sights – and what sights they are! This particular scene drew me as the light was so golden and full of feeling also a beautiful view with several people taking an early evening stroll. Needless to say I feel quite addicted to Brighton already – you’ve sucked me in and I never want to leave! I am inspired to become a professional photographer, which I will endeavour to do.
