Before I get stuck into my obligatory end of year lists I thought it would make a nice change to use this space for displaying some interesting, amusing and beautiful things that I – and my more photographically talented half – have observed while walking the streets. 

I’m not going to go into any huge explanations of the images, as I think most of them speak for themselves, but I have included some links to those artists if you want a bit more information. 

Enjoy:
