Christmas In London 2015

December 13, 2015 11:30 AM ‐ Christmas

As you probably know, I'm a bit of a fan of Christmas, especially when it comes to lights. I've always been obsessed with lights so in December when the whole city gets covered in them, I get a little excited and take a lot of photos.
