It’s the first week of January in an icy cold winter and we had a short ramble around Saint-Pierre-sur-Dives on a Friday night after Christmas. It was only 8 PM and we were rather surprised at just how few people were out and about. The streets were practically empty — but that did allow me to get some good photos of the Christmas lights.

The only place in the village that was busy on a Friday night — the kebab shop!
And finally — my favourite image — Mark in silhouette as he walks down a narrow street near the market square.
