The weather may be pretty erratic at the moment today in London but it wasn’t so long ago that it was gorgeous sunshine. When I went to see the Jurassic Kingdom exhibition I saw the wonderful trees, gorgeous Middle Lake and wide-open space within Osterley Park, so just had to take some photographs to share with you.
I took these both on the same day when at Victoria Park by Bethnal Green. I couldn’t decide which one to pick, so decided to include them both.
Over the weekend I went to Jurassic Kingdom at Osterley Park. I’ll be writing it up in more detail soon, but just had to add this first.
Even in a place as busy as London, there are times when it can feel that the city is all yours.
I just had to add this dazzling extra photo from the Winter Lights exhibition in Canary Wharf.
There was a fantastic set of free light exhibitions in Canary Wharf, London, which ran for two weeks last month. It was a collection of indoor and outdoor, with some borrowed for the event and others specially commissioned. The advantage of having several displays was made full use of, with some themed on sound, movement, brain waves and interactive displays. The area frequently puts up different temporary exhibitions. Among others I’ve covered have been the Remembrance Art Trail and Flower Sculpture.
Star Wars is a phenomenon that shows no sign of abating. Ever since its introduction with A New Hope in 1977 it has blown audiences away with its fantasy charm, good v evil battles, memorable heroes, sinister villains and, in the lightsabre, the best weapon ever. Even its recent spin-off was a huge smash. So when I saw there was an exhibition entitled Star Wars Identities at the 02 featuring over 200 props, models, costumes and artwork, I just had to go. Tosha Michelle who was in town, came along for the ride.
It always does seem to me that I am doing more work than I should do. It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
Arguably the most famous lines from Three Men in a Boat (1889), the charming book by Jerome K. Jerome. Filled with amusing and irreverent anecdotes, the story tells of three friends (and the fox terrier Montmorency) who decide to take a trip along the River Thames for a fortnight.
Birds get cold too! This kit of pigeons (and their shadows) gathered together and just had to be taken.
