I went walking late yesterday morning in Hackney, a borough of east London, where I found these autumnal grape leaves along the Regent's Canal. Beautiful, aren't they?
I also found lots of street art and interesting buildings, some of which you'll no doubt see in coming weeks.
I've been doing a lot of work with my photography lately. I can't reveal everything because some of it is associated with Christmas gifts. But I can say that one of Dave's coworkers is interested in buying some prints to decorate his newly renovated house, so I've been figuring out how to obtain large-format images and where to frame them. I'm not sure there will be much profit associated with that one deal, but perhaps it's a stepping stone toward learning how to make money from my pictures.
Last night Dave and I were supposed to have seats in the audience at the Graham Norton Show, a talk show on the BBC that we love. So we traipsed down to the BBC studios in the evening, but unfortunately they overbooked the audience, so we didn't get in. They said they'd guarantee us seats at a future show. The scheduled guests last night were Cliff Richard and Lord Alan Sugar, neither of whom I particularly wanted to see, so I'm fine with waiting. Personally, I won't be happy unless the Queen is on his couch.
