The view from my houseboat on the River Thames early this morning on almost the shortest day when, cloud permitting, the sun rises out of the river. Don't think I'll be as lucky tomorrow!

The Lion's Share

Child star Shirley Temple was quoted, "I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph." Finding these four only slightly dented my own faith. Happy Christmas to all chums!

Santa's Threesome!

Hi Girls! Thanks for posing at the Santacon gathering in Trafalgar Square last night for an old fashion photographer,  the only snapper using a camera rather than a smart phone. And for being patient while he dug out his reading glasses to show you the results!

Santa Claus is coming to Town...

Hundreds of Santas will be in London this Saturday for Santacon, a non-profit, non-religious and non-sensical Christmas street parade. This picture is from last year's event, when the Santas had  just arrived in Trafalgar Square, a little the worse for wear!

A big thank you to Craig at Cafe Royal Books for running more photos from my "Being English" book, available from bluecoatpress.co.uk at a modest £20....a lovely Christmas present!
