Baby, it's cold outside


Regular readers of this blog will recall that one of Saltaire's more recent but now established and well-loved traditions is the Living Advent Calendar, when residents and businesses throughout the village decorate windows for Christmas. One is unveiled every evening from 1st December up to Christmas Eve. (View them all here.) I like to go out and photograph them, though some work better as photos than others. After an hour or so in the chilly night air, I was ready to come back to a mug of hot chocolate and a warm fireside. What I really need for Christmas is some fingerless gloves that allow me to operate my camera and tripod but keep my little mitts warm!

  2. Hi Jenny .. sure hope Santa's listening, reading ... but your photos are always amazing and so good to see .. and show us areas of Saltaire we'd be unlikely to see .. also other parts of the country when you visit ..

    It's cold up there, not so bad down here .. today just very windy .. cheers and Happy Christmas season .. Hilary

  5. The perfect gift for you! If Santa doesn't come through, I think you should get some for yourself!

  8. PS I like your site header photo Jenny, is it one of your own or a template?

  9. But, if you had those gloves, would the mug of hot chocolate and the fireplace still be as wonderful?
