On this day in 1946, The Frank Capra film "It's A Wonderful Life" had a preview showing for charity at New York City's Globe Theatre, a day before its "official" world premiere. James Stewart and Donna Reed star in the film.

As stated some time ago, I'm working on a project to photograph all the petrol stations between Boyle and Dublin. Ed Ruscha done this in 1963 when he published his iconic 'Twenty-Six Gasoline' stations. At this stage, I've done most of them in sketch form, meaning I've done sample shots with a view to reshooting.

Photo: ISO 100. 8 seconds @ f/11.

A rare sight in Boyle, night temperatures are dropping as low as -17℃ with conditions set to continue until Christmas Day. For the first time since moving here, the water to the house has frozen!
