What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the fishing boat ‘Ellie Jane’ at East Runton near Cromer in Norfolk.

‘Ellie Jane’ has featured on this blog before but I make no excuses for including another image from one of my favourite spots on our coastline…

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was ‘Light Night‘ in Nottingham, a ‘night of eclectic and electric light installations’ that kicked off (for me at least) with a few pints in the Pitcher and Piano (where the ‘Hanging Helmet’ caught my eye).

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Cool Yule or whatever celebration floats your boat at this time of year…

A Christmas tree image from four years ago, captured at London St Pancras International railway station… If memory serves I steadied the camera by pressing it tightly up against one of the pillars that supports the upper level of the station.

2000 soft toys were provided by The Disney Store and when the ‘tree’ was taken down they were donated to KIDS, a charity which cares for disabled children, young people and their families.

* ‘and to all, a good night…’
