London Lights 2018

I’ve been to London a few times these last couple of months, and as the Festive season has approached I’ve seen lots of interesting, pretty, bright decorations and trees being put up. I thought I’d share some of the ones that I just had to stop and snap.

Some looked better in the day time or in bright light. I really liked the neon trees that have a simple shape and design and really caught my eye, and I loved the huge, moving robot on the tree at St Pancras station – something very different.

Then there were others that sparkled in the night when the sun went down, the presents atop the car in Covent Garden was a fun display, but I think I really enjoyed looking at the tree at King’s Cross alongside the mini fountains, and the light bouncing off the water.

It’s always fun walking around London, finding things that you least expect, and it’s been even more interesting in the darker, colder months when coming across the unexpected, brings a smile to your face.

I hope you all have a great festive season and have a lovely time with family and friends.

Race of Champions 2015

I recently went to a racing event at the Olympic Stadium in London called Race of Champions which brings together some of the best drivers in the world and pits them against each other to see who is the fastest. I’d never heard of this event before but it seemed to be well known among sports fans and as I managed to get my hands on some free tickets I thought it seemed like an interesting evening.

There were top F1 drivers present as well as Olympians and celebrities and it was fun to see them compete against each other as well as stunts being performed in super fast cars and motorcycles. In the stadium it was really cold but I managed to stay to the end and take a few snaps. I was hoping to take better pictures but I was a bit too far away, so just focused on enjoying the evening.
