Ticking over just fine

Things have been a little quiet over here since the start of the year, haven’t they? My bad. January’s usually that month that feels like it’s going on and on. Yet this year, I’m finding it hard to believe that one month of 2013 is already almost over. Wasn’t Christmas just last week?

So what have I been up to? Honestly, not much past the normal! But the normal’s always more interesting when littered with photos. Am I right?

Night time glow

Not a brilliant shot for today, but it’s Friday and I was tired and finding inspiration when it’s pitch black is hard. So mental note – take more pictures in the daylight!

This shot is a street light across the road from me, taken when it just started snowing again. Only lightly, but … follows on the cold theme we’ve been having here in the UK for the past week or so.
