Too funny! A somewhat wet but rain-free day? Very nice pics! Thank you so much for the Christmas tree! Love the dramatic sky and back-lighting! I couldn’t wish for a nicer Christmas present, yizhivika! I feel extremely honored. 🙂
And thankyou, andelieya, for all the kind comments that you’ve made on this photoblog in the past few weeks; they’ve been appreciated :). And despite the puddles, and the appearance of some of those clouds, it didn’t actually rain while I was in Southampton this afternoon…although I’m sure we will have more rain here in England over the next few days… 😉
🙂 ~ Your lovely pictures all make everything look so calm, which seems strange for Christmas Eve. 🙂
Have a wonderful Christmas you two and a very happy and healthy 2013. 🙂
And thank you very much too, for all the many complimentary comments you’ve made on this site over the past year; I’ve really enjoyed the dialogue…:).
And, of course, very best wishes too to you and yours for this Christmas, and for the coming year :). When H finishes her degree in 2013, I hope she’ll be doing a few gigs in and around Hampshire, and that I get the opportunity to see you both again :).
I didn’t know the QE2 anchor was by Holy Rood, just goes to show how often I go down that way. The so-called High Street certainly isn’t these days!
Haha…so often there are things in your home city that come as a surprise, and yes, looks like the High Street is more a historical legacy name than a reflection of the reality of modern Southampton. I think that was probably only the third or fourth visit I’ve made to Southampton in my life, but it was an enjoyable excursion, using the X4 bus from Portsmouth Hard :).
