Well, most of you probably haven't even started thinking about it yet but, having been on the go for the last 8 months, let me tell you, Christmas isn't that far away!

Unfortunately, owing to the unique way the BBC is funded Mrs Santa spends my money, I haven't been able to pay the elves their overtime for the last couple of months, so they are currently out on strike in the car park. Their picket line can't actually be seen due to the 3 feet of snow, but that's another story...
Critique British Museum
I've been cleaning out old photos to clear some space on drives. I came across this one of the British Museum. I often do this building as a b&w as I find the shapes are often enough to capture my interest however the subtle colours of the sky and lighting on the roof structure made me think this is better in colour and worth keeping.

I should say I'm a structural engineer and this roof is one of my favourite structures- I could sit for hours and contemplate it whether I've got me...
Lots of little Shelduck ducklings this year, one brood of 19 has been observed! :eek:
