Loved Christmas, LoveBrighton

It’s been and gone so quickly, and our winning photo from December’s Flickr competition reminds us so much of the festive season. The theme was LoveChristmas LoveBrighton, and the winning photo, taken by ClarissaWAM below, was so unashamedly festive, it just had to win!

ClarissaWAM has written a blog for us, about her photo and being the surprise winner of our Flickr competition!

"This photo is actually quite untypical of me, as I am not a huge fan of Christmas and try to avoid most of it. But when I read about this amazingly over the top house in the Argus, I just had to go check it out. Luckily it wasn't very hard to find, though I still managed to get a little lost!

Apparently it has been an attraction for quite a few years now, and they raise money for animal charities as well. So I left a few coins and took a few pics. I think what I love most about the house is all the detail - you can blow the photo up to full size and discover lots of things, such as the soft toys hanging below the bottom window or the weird cage to the left of the front door.

I regularly check out the LoveBrighton group on Flickr so I was super-excited to have won the competition - especially as I didn't really know I'd entered! But I am so glad you like my pic!"

ClarissaWAM has won vouchers to spend at funky fabric store, Get Cutie, a shop in the North Laine whose beautiful dresses and skirts are iconic fashion must-haves, and sum Brighton up perfectly!

If you’d like to get involved and share the Brighton Love, then join our LoveBrighton Flickr group and your pictures taken this month will automatically get entered into January’s competition; Love New Year LoveBrighton.

Stay Classy, Brighton & Hove.
