We have both been busy working on our first project - 10-15 images that tell a story of a place in the Bloomsbury area of London. So not much time for posting on this blog.

Finally, Geri was amused by this drinking fountain built by a temperance society in the mid-1800's:



Jason took this picture in Bath showing the contrast between old and modern Bath:
