It was my girlfriend Nicola's birthday last week. I decided to surprise her with a trip to Brighton for a couple of days. It was really nice to get out of London for a break and enjoy the seaside. We had a mixture of overcast sky and then bright sunshine while we were there. It really is a beautiful place and very photogenic.

I took both my X-pro1 and Olympus Om1-n to shoot some film. I hope to home develop the film in the next few days, Below are a selection of my favourite shots. They are taken with the Fuji X-pro1 with XF 35mm and XF 18mm lenses. All images are processed with VSCO film 05.
