London in winter: The Living (How do you like your hot chocolate?) (continued)

Hi all

2007/2008 - While trying to figure out life, the universe and everything, my journey brought me to London for a couple of short trips where I learnt the following:
(1) one has to be disciplined to catch the short daylight hours;
(2) it's terribly difficult to hold a camera steady at night and in zero degree temperature; and
(3) next time, I should always make place in my suitcase for a tripod!

It's been years since I lived through a full winter in London, and beautiful as it may be, I can't say hand on my heart that it's pleasant. But I do know that London has always held special memories for me. Whether to live or to visit, it's one of the greatest cities in the world.

2009/2010 update - back again in my favourite city, with my tripod this time! Please stay tuned. The most recent images at the top.

2013 - And some others dug out from a long lost archive of photos that I thought I'd lost forever!

PS - London in summer looks a little something like this. Please click on the thumbnail to view the full gallery:
