I went back to Chelsea this week, to take some photographs in the sunshine, for my “London Cameos” video with Elaine Hopkins – I’m still working on it… While I was there, I got chatting with two Chelsea Pensioners – they’re both newcomers to Chelsea and have offered to give me a guided tour of the Royal Hospital whenever I’m free. 🙂
This week was also the start of the Lunar New Year – the Year of the Ram / Sheep – so I made another trip to Chinatown, in Soho, to capture some of the activity on film. The main celebrations weren’t until the following Sunday, but I was busy then (and it was raining in the afternoon!), so I missed the live Lion Dance. Now I wish I’d had a video camera when I was in Hong Kong for Chinese New Year in 1997!!
