I have just returned from Lucca in Tuscany (part work, mostly play!) and, as ever, loved it. It’s an elegant and sophisticated city (one of the guidebooks calls it the ‘Switzerland of the South’!)… it has a fascinating history and the medieval walls are still standing, encircling the walls and providing an excellent bike-ride all the way round. The streets are a maze of expensive jewellers, busy cafes and well-stocked grocers. No signs of Starbucks or Aldi; just good local shops and a lot of bikes! Mary Portas would thoroughly admire the high streets (!) of Lucca…. One of the noticable features about the streets are the signs above many of the shops… they have kept the old signs and the affect is fantastic… The citizens also seem to have a real pride for the street.. as in most of Italy, they seem to spend a lot of time washing down the pavement directly outside their shops… a lesson to be learned!

Well, the year's turned and I'm mooching around in the office trying to reorganise/springclean and generally do nothing! It was a good year (2012) and you can read a review here... At the moment its snowing here in Bristol, so any excuse to discuss 'not snowing' weather would be gratefully received!

Well its 'here we go again' time!... off to Cornwall again shooting for 25BH magazine, then straight back and up the M4 to shoot for a day with Esti Barnes of 'Top Floor Rugs' in London on wednesday. Then another shoot for Route One in the next couple of weeks, and a final shoot for the wonderful National Trust at Powis Castle Gardens ... Blimey...
