First there was a visit to Somerset House on Xmas eve 2012 to view an exhibition of photographs attempting to create in colour what Cartier Bresson did in black & white
I got asked not to take photographs….. 😛
Outside in the courtyard the Ice Rink was in full swing..
Including the famous Skate Penguin (a training aid for novice skaters)…who tweeted, & made videos of his adventures in London…all rather fun…
Then there was a visit to the Croydon Airport Visitor Centre. Croydon boasted the World’s first intercontinental Airport & was London’s main airport between the wars. Flights continued after WW2 up till 1958. A visit to the Centre is free & it is open on the first Sunday of every month.
Reconstruction of the original control room, in it’s exact location
The Rook & Raven Gallery just off Oxford Street to see some reinterpretations of photos of The Rolling Stones taken by Bill Wyman. Some fascinating & historic images included.
Minimalist to say the least, lower gallery.
