Two more S days before .... Xmas


It was all happening in London'd Regents Street this late afternoon - two more shopping days before Xmas and the street was (as one can imagine) full of frantic shoppers.

Regents Street is one of my favourite Streets in the Capital - Not sure whether the Xmas decoration does it justice ...?

Famous brand names have their flagship shops along Regents Street - Burberry's shop window
is a fun one

Ice turned to snow


perfectly formed ice crystals

It was so cold during the night that this morning two thirds of the Tooting Bec Lido were frozen!


But then the snow came....

Sunday stroll



I swapped my days .. Saturday was really busy with three cold water swims.
Sunday on the other hand we made time for a quiet yet cold stroll around Tooting Bec Common.

Challenge Results


Another amazing winter morning in Tooting!

Now that the results for the Ed Ruscha Challenge are out, I can share my entry with you.
here a reminder of the brief:

Ruscha Film Challenge Brief

Ed Ruscha has been at the forefront of American art for fifty years and this film

challenge gives you the chance to respond to the Hayward's current exhibition in a

creative, inventive and imaginative way that will communicate some key aspects

about the artist and his work to the general public. Your work can use any form of

moving image including animation or graphics, but must include an installation shot of

at least one of the selected works and last a maximum of 30 seconds


here a link showing the winner's work and a few others.
