harrods' sparkling winter
in london


Harrods at night

Last week, we escaped the winter gray of London for blue skies and sunshine in Cancun.  We spent time at the beach, hung out with friends, and I did ZERO writing.  But, on the long flights to and from Europe, I finally caught up on photography editing.  This is a seriously amazing thing for me --- I haven't been caught up on culling, post-processing, and editing since we first left the United States back in 2009.  So, I was looking through our London pictures and I realized again that, despite the gloom and gray, London is a gorgeous city.

And, Harrods, that legendary department store is a wonderland of creativity, beauty, and commercialism.  If I lived in London, I would come here every month to take pictures of the gorgeous and intricate window displays.
