On a bright – but very cold – day I saw a great reflection of Crouch End’s Clocktower in the window of the local bookshop. Quite a difficult image to tackle and I will need to try out different approaches, but here’s the first attempt….

Bubbles and rain go together well! The young entertainers on the plazza next to Trafalgar Square in London, outside the National Gallery were a good draw for their younger audience. The shiny pavements made a good reflective and colourful backdrop……
