"London Calling, yes I was there too….An’ you know what they said? Some of it was true”.
Lyrics from London Calling. The Clash 1979 (yes really).
love : hate
When I lived there I came to loath it, now I’m a “tourist” I love it.
Leaving Berwick, photo shot off the train using my phone.
Another camera shot - leaving Newcastle upon Tyne
First stop - some shopping at Gudrun S.
But look up at the building.
Purposely getting lost walking from Monmouth Street to Orange Street.
Via Lisle Street and London’s China Town.
This is one of the things I love about London, getting lost, looking at the architecture, wondering about the history.
And I have to confess ALL the pictures you see will have been taken on the iPhone or iPad.
It’s simply so much more convenient than lugging a huge heavy camera around.
More to come on Ai Weiwei at the RA, inspiration from the Natural History Museum, Fabric of India at the V&A….. and then the British Museum, the Foundling Museum and the British Library.
Yes I am exhausted. I arrived in London at 12noon on Friday and left at 5pm on Saturday.
I was in the hotel from 10pm -10am.
Next time remind me to book two nights please.
