Yesterday we went to London's Natural History Museum, one of my favourite places in the city, to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. We went with our good friends Paula and Brian who are also travel and photography fans.
The exhibition was surprisingly quiet so there was plenty of space to take in the awe inspiring images as well as chat about travel, photographic techniques (In camera double exposure anyone?) and of course, the wildlife.
Paula and I were both taken with this abstract image of a spider's web, by Finnish photographer, Antti Partanen, titled A Spectrum of Silk.
I hope the New Year is full of joy, success and happiness for you all.
December 2011 was full of knitting so I'll be showing you some of my FOs, yes I actually finished things, over the next few blog posts.
I've also been bustling around London since Christmas visiting exhibitions.
We had a quiet evening last night, eating good food and sampling interesting beers and ciders. Back in October we collected some quince from our friends garden, which I turned into Quince cheese. We saw in 2012 eating grapes, in the Spanish tradition*, Manchego cheese and the quince cheese. A delicious way to start the new year.
*Eating one grape on every stroke of midnight. It's harder than it sounds. It's also good fun.
