Ben Helfgott a Holocaust survivor holds a candle on Holocaust Memorial Day. The event was held on the Millenium Bridge in London 2013. Using the theme 'Build a Bridge' the small and dignified event was a reminder to those who think that genocide can't happen on this scale; that it can and it doesn't need much for people to descend to such acts.

The snow hit London this weekend and as usual caused chaos and some opportunities for photography. Nothing more fun than taking photographs at this time of year, it doesn't happen very often so you have to take advantage.

The London Ice Sculpting Festival took place in Canary Wharf at the weekend. Some fascinating sculptures and artists from all over the world. I thought the one above had a bit of Eric Gill about it. Very good work and a freezing cold day!
