Weekly Snapshots - August 5

Each week I share snapshots from my Instagram. The photos in this set are from the week ending August 5, 2018. If you like them, please follow me @aislingbrock!

Sometimes it's bizarre living so far from home. My home province only became a province in 1905, yet the buildings I spend most of my time in these days date from the mid 1800s. Occasionally I stumble across scenes that I think MUST be a film set, but it's just ordinary England. I've been reading a lot about World War 2 again, and when I leave my flat I look out toward the sea and wonder what it would have looked like surrounded by anti-aircraft measures, filled with army boats. Sometimes I think about all the people from different eras who walked where I walk. I imagine what I'd be wearing if I were one of the Victorian ladies that lived in my neighbourhood. It's probably a weird hobby, but I enjoy it.

It's nearly Pride weekend in Brighton and even the train station is exceptionally gay. I'm very early for my train, so I decided to treat myself at the station coffee shop, and they're playing gay anthems. The salad at M&S has been replaced by a rainbow display of alcoholic drinks. There are flags everywhere! I'm excited to spend the weekend with Katy and bask in the rainbow! 🏳️‍👭

Had loads of fun watching the Brighton Pride parade this morning, as usual! I love the atmosphere, but more than that I love the groups that remember that Pride is a political protest. The country watches Brighton Pride, so it's especially important to stand up for marginalised people and for trans rights.
