Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park

I didn't even know this was going on, but came across it while we were taking in a winter's walk across Hyde Park.

I didn't expect a lot, but it was actually really rather lovely. It's on till the 3rd January and it's free.

Cardiff at Christmas

Just a few snaps from my brief stay in my home town over Christmas. It's getting hard to reconcile the city with my memories as it's being redeveloped so fast.

Christmas Lights, NY/London

Putting Oxford Street's desperate offering to shame is the gloriously over-the-top display at the Rockefeller Centre, New York:

And here's the feeble lights on London's Oxford Street.
