Another Merry Christmas

Another year is drawing to its end and I hope that you have enjoyed reading some (or all) of my blog posts through 2015. I just wanted to post a sort of a Christmas themed street photo to round the year off.

I have entitled it ‘bringing home the panettone’ which makes it a bit festive but it was taken as I was on my way to meet up with some friends and colleagues for a Christmas drink and meal and that adds to its seasonal feeling. Being an independent and freelance photographer I don’t get to spend enough time working with a team and it is lovely to get to be part of an office party like this one was.

2015 has been a good year for me and for my work but it has been tinged by the sadness of losing too many fellow photographers, most of whom were far too young.

Thanks for reading my blog, thanks for contributing and I wish you a very merry Christmas and successful new year.

  1. How are they lost? Dying or killed on assignment?

    Ah, Panetone – we bought it in Florence just a couple of weeks ago. It was €3.00 for a 1Kg panetone in the supermarket or a bit more for a fancy brand. Of course, we asked which was better and opted for the better brand and just half a kilo.
