Cameron smiling in front of Brighton’s futuristic-looking i360, a moving torus on a tall steel tower. Cameron clutching his cutlery and grinning over an overloaded plate of Sunday roast in a very British pub.

The moon above a canal. In the foreground bicycles are lined up on a canal bridge. A canal at night, the still waters reflecting the lights from the houses on each side. A row of tall thin houses painted black with white windowsills. Herring in bread with raw onion and pickles.

A nice day in Amsterdam.

A glass of light brown beer on a table in foreground while someone cycles past over the canal in the background.

Beer on a bridge.

Jessica smiling, standing between two bicycles on a bridge over a canal as the sun sets in the background.

A young woman in a dress sitting outside a building in the sunshine with a button accordion in her hands.

I love this picture of my grandmother—my mother’s mother who passed away before I was born. She’d play button box and fiddle at the harvest dances.

A crowded table in a pub with people of all ages, a young woman playing fiddle and a young man playing button accordion.
