A white swan floating nonchalantly down the river Cam one Winter's morning, towards a side-lit Clare College Bridge in misty weather.

Hi Lesley,

Yep, has been a manic past month to be honest, am trying to run three jobs, build a website, keep myself in shape, it's all getting a bit too much! Should quieten up after Christmas...

Slightly different post - I've not put any of my Cambridge stuff on here til now, but will shift this way for the near future. Have got a huge backlog of city shots and architecture to work through... Smile

Have a lovely Christmas too!
