Black & white brass


It was late-night Christmas shopping in Salts Mill, Saltaire last Thursday.  Shoppers were serenaded with seasonal music played by Hammond's Saltaire Band (who are very good!)  The sound really soared through the vaulted 1853 Gallery - and the fragrance of mulled wine and lilies scented the air.

  1. This works well, in B&W. Lilies and mulled wine, a heady combination.

  2. B & W looks good. Hubby has been out with The Salvation Army Band carolling since the beginning of December, they carol outside our local large supermarket. Hope your nativity walk went well yesterday? Judyx

  14. Oh I want to shop there too! Oh who am I kidding, it was the mulled wine comment that got my attention! Seriously though, that really must have been something to experience. ~Lili
