year two done. who would have believed it? i didn’t think i would get through year one but I did and then without even thinking year two just kind of happened. it seemed so natural to do. i have my phone with me everywhere i go and i love a good photo opportunity. friends have commented that going anywhere with me can often take a long time as i’m always stopping to take a picture of this or that. i’ve found the project slightly addictive and have really loved being able to look back through the year and now two years and instantly being reminded of what happened on that exact day. a photographic journey of HPMcQ. and so we start year three, will you join me?

in the little part of london where we live, there is a lovely little tradition that has been happening for quite some time. we have been enjoying this tradition for the last 7 years that we have lived here. however this year it was just that tiny bit more special than it has been previously for us. you see this is what happens. the last wednesday before christmas the salvation army come along and set up shop just outside our front door. all the neighbours come out to play and with us we bring mince pies and mulled wine. we wrap up warm in the cold night and for an hour we sing christmas carols.
