I usually run with a theme. Last week I took you to our Enlighten festival (which finishes today). I am taking you back to see more this week.
As always, lots (and lots) of photos follow.
There is a flag for each nation who has a diplomatic presence in our country - including those countries where diplomacy is sometimes strained.
These next photos are of the illuminations on our National Portrait Gallery. I enjoyed them but think that there have been better displays in other years.
The fishes swam in a water feature which is currently without water and waiting for repair. It looks decidedly better with the fishes than it does in the light of day.
These shots are of a 'blow-up' feature. It was cordoned off this year because of corvid. In other years we were encouraged to wander through similar features.
Next week (unless I show the Balloon Spectacular instead) I will show you the illuminations on Questacon, on the National Library and some other quirky fun.
I hope your week is packed with colour and joy.
