Thames and Tate

What do single males do on a Sunday afternoon? Go to the pub I guess, watch football, that sort of thing. Well Im not a great pub person (Tomie please note!) and I am not hugely interested in football either, so I often end up wandering around looking for something to do.

This walk started out as a visit to the Festival Hall to see what was on and ended up as a very pleasant walk along the river - eventually to London Bridge (another exciting series to come!)

And now it is a Bank Holiday weekend and I have Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoons to think of something to do….

What excitement will this weekend bring I wonder!

The London Eye

The Thames on a cloudy day - sky a bit like Turner - but he didn't have the cranes of course!

Along the pier

the Oxo Tower

Just behind the Oxo tower - this looks fun!

I love this wall - so interesting

More river, more cranes

Tate Modern

With great big paintings on the walls !


A big job! interesting how it is done.

Bit phallic this

More giant paintings

And a last look at an iconic building. Such a great use of an old power station.
