I headed to London today to see an exhibition about British Design at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I’ve wanted to go for weeks but haven’t had the time and it seemed sensible to do it before the Olympics start and the capital becomes completely chaotic. It was an excellent exhibition and I was glad I made the effort. Afterwards I spent a little time exploring the Museum’s various galleries (including their new photography gallery – well worth a look if you’re in London) and then popped over the road for a quick look in the Science Museum. I took a few photos as I wandered but it wasn’t until I walked up towards the Royal Albert Hall that I finally found some scenes that really caught my eye. The Proms are on at the moment and every day you’ll find people queuing up the steps behind the Albert Hall, waiting to get cheap tickets to promenade in the centre of the hall. Everyone seemed in their own world, either deep in thought or engrossed in whatever they’d brought along to entertain themselves and they all seemed utterly oblivious of me shooting surreptitiously with my nifty fifty!
For various reasons I’ve had to post three days’ photos at once so not all of my posts will pop up on the front page of Photoblog. Please do take a moment to visit my other posts here
as I hope you’ll enjoy the photos!
