Carnaby Street Christmas lights 2014, London W1

The best camera is the one you have in your hand. Quite so just now, finding myself unexpectedly in London’s West End and avoiding the rush hour crush entering Oxford Circus tube station, the obvious alternative is to walk down Carnaby Street to Piccadilly Circus.
What’s more, Carnaby Street lights are more interesting than the rather staid and comparatively dim Christmas lights strung between the big name shops in Regent Street and Oxford Street.
A “proper” camera with a tripod would have got a different result...
