Where is Tom Bombadil?

Something Tolkienesque?

Is this deep in the mysterious Withywindle valley, or is it really the Thames path near Goring? Perhaos Tom Bombadil is a distant relative of Old Father Thames, or perhaps J.R.R.Tolkien used to walk this way and it gave him the idea?

Leaves on the water

Here’s another picture from almost the same spot.

Polar Bear

Polar Bear at XOYO

A couple of photos of Polar Bear at XOYO in London on Wednesday April 2nd. This gig was a real challenge to photpgraph with the atmospheric and moody lighting, so in contrast to the hundreds of good photos from HRH Prog a few days earlier I only managed to get a handful of usable images.

As a jazz act they’re well outside my usual comfort zone, but I still found them a very entertaining if challenging live band. There will be a review in due course.
