British Museum

I met up with my friend Sharon [webdzine.typepad.com] in London today for a spot of retail therapy and photography. Our first stop was Grays of Westminster where she bought a lovely Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. Fortunately, as Grays only stock Nikon cameras and lenses I couldn??t be tempted to spend any money! From there we headed to the British Museum for a spot of lunch and some photography. We only had an hour or so before our trains home so we concentrated on the courtyard area with its Sir Norman Foster roof. There were countless interesting angles and lines to shoot and we had a great time exploring these at almost every possible focal length between us. These shots are my favourites from the trip ?? I can see I??ll be going back to take more when I??m in London again!

The stairs to the British Museum's reading room, now covered by Sir Norman Foster's fabulous roof.

Looking directly up one of the pillars. Sharon captured a funny shot of me in ridiculous contortions trying to take this shot!

I love the details carved into the Portland stone work

      I love those shots, I haven't been there for years, perhaps I will make a trip back in the near future. The detail in the third pic is great

      You have taken some interesting almost abstract shots which you are so good at. When I looked at them I thought Stefan will like these and sure enough there he is above my comment!
