Happy New Year

Copenhagen Chic New Years
I took this photo on New Year's Eve a couple of years ago. It was 18:17 in Copenhagen. Temperature: 1 degree. The streets and bike lanes were busy with people heading to parties and get togethers. Bicycles everywhere.

An expectant mood. So expectant that one doesn't give riding in a skirt and heels in that temperature a second thought. It's what you do.

I'll be in Montreal for New Year's Eve. Looking forward to it.

A very Happy New Year to all of you!
