Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Lumiere London

Over this weekend a umber of London buildings and streets have been transformed with a variety of light installations by different artists. Last night I went into the West End to have a look. It was bitterly cold but well worth the effort. There are many more installations around London so maybe I'll get to see more over the weekend. Where there's light there is usually a reflection to be found.

 These dresses were in the windows of Liberty's store Regent Street.

  2. I love all this and appreciate the work it took to capture them for us. I love window shopping at dress shopping although we only have one dress shop with window displays in our area.

    The other light installations are simply spectacular!

  20. We saw this too. You got some great pictures. I suspect you have a better camera than me. I struggled to get good photos of the stick men animation at the top of Regent St, but I could have watched it for hours.
