Once again Black and White has such a different feeling than color. In black and white man becomes another shape, almost negative space, part of the seascape, not human so much as a symbol for Everyman.

In the old school keeping of time, it is not only New Years Eve but the Seventh Day of Christmas as well. This was during the 3rd week of Advent.
The soul was willing to up load but I’m just now finding the bandwidth. This was during a concert at St. Andrew’s Cathedral.
Edit: Huh, when you think you see a redundant punctuation mark but it’s really an indication you need to clean your computer screen.
