Beauty and the Beasts

After coming out of Victoria Station in London, I notice the Nova building, towering above the beautiful building on the right. I liked the juxtaposition of these three buildings with the compressed perspective of a telephoto lense. The Nova occupies an entire block, comprises of two office buildings, designed by PLP Architecture and a residential building by Benson & Forsyth. It was voted Carbuncle of the year 2017, a worthy title in my mind, although. it is strangely intriguing to look at and an assault on the senses at the same time.. The Pigeon was an added bonus, and luckily captured at the right time.

Brighton Bandstand

Beautiful and truly unique, The Bandstand is located on Brighton's vibrant seafront. The Bandstand first opened in 1884. The historic seafront bandstand re-opened in summer 2009, having undergone a major restoration project to return the building to its Victorian splendour. The deck of the bandstand is used for regular concerts, whilst the base of the building has been converted into a café. It is now available as a venue for weddings and ceremonies.

Exeter Cathedral is a stunning building, its proper name is the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter. The present building was completed by about 1400, and has several notable features, including an early set of misericords, an astronomical clock and the longest uninterrupted medieval stone vaulted ceiling in the world.
