This phone hung on the wall by the bar in The Spanish Arch in Galway. I don’t know if it still works. In any case I dragged my kids out of their seats to show them what a telephone looked like when I was a kid. And they didn’t even appricaite it!
This is my New Year’s greeting to everyone, old friends, new friends, and the ones I haven’t met yet. Light a candle and shine bright where ever you are. Respect others for their journey and be your own light. In darkness even one candle makes a difference. Namaste.
Shaftbury Avenue – and just a tip, if you get to London during Christmas make sure you also photograph at Covent Garden. I only had time for a crowded, hurried walk-through with kids, but the place looked spectacular.
This shot is from the Lucia celebration at my children’s school. On the 13’th they walk around with candles singing songs to the Italian saint Santa Lucia. For some reason she is very popular as part of the Christmas celebration on Scandinavia. Perhaps because she is associated with light at the darkest time of the year.
