Prior to joining the auction house as a cataloguer in 2000, she worked as a researcher at the National Portrait Gallery (London).

I used my "colored pencil" filter on this one for a more artistic feel.

I've seen three of the films on the marquee: The Queen, History Boys, and Children of Men. All were good.

Tate Modern Request

Hello all!

So I have a slightly odd request, that I am hoping someone can help me with. We visited the Tate Modern the other week, and it inspired a mini-project idea. However, before we left, we foolishly forgot a vital part of our project :D.

If anyone could take a picture of [any] one of the little description card/plaque things next to each painting/sculpture/etc., I'd... be very grateful :).

So if you are planning a visit, or even live very near, I'd be most appreciative!

The Thames Tunnel

This afternoon, we went on a tour of the Thames Tunnel, as found-out-about on _londonbelow_, with an unexpected realtan_dannan and darkpoint. It was organised by the Brunel Engine House museum, which is in Rotherhithe, as part of Architecture Week 2005.

Ob Cute Waterfowl:

In the museum, we picked up a leaflet about the Rotherhithe Festival, which we're sadly going to miss: it's on Sunday 3 July, noon 'til five. There will be free guided bus tours of the peninsula, and the local attractions will be free. There is a map in the leaflet, but no URL is given. If anyone's interested, I can scan it or something.

(xposted to _londonbelow_, but I thought that you might like to see the piccies, as it's been quiet here!)

Nature in London

I live in Canada Water, and this afternoon we went for a wander around the area.

Here is a map:

The grey square on the map is our quay. We have swans:

We also have strange sculptures:

It's the little red bows on the little red shoes that scare me most. I think.

The green square on the map includes, amongst other things, the home ground of internationally renowned Fisher Athletic FC. They're playing at home today against East Thurrock so, as you can imagine, it was all go at the ground.

Also in that bit of the map, we found some mysterious stairs to nowhere:
Actually, not stairs to *nowhere*, just stairs to nowhere you'd want to go:

In the blue square, we saw two baby foxes, even though it was daylight and sunny. Unfortunately, they both ran off the moment I turned my camera on. You'll just have to imagine them. I was surprised how near they let us get.

Finally, we went to the red square, which has a cool pond in it. There were lots of birds in the pond, including:

Geese with a nest and

Coots, one on a nest and one swimming around with the results of the previous clutch.

No swans, though, so our pond is better.


Hi I'm new here, just wanted to say hi, I see this community must have been started not long ago...

I love London, and got to visit for a while earlier this year. I hope to scan some of my photos to post soon!

For now here is a photo I found online of the Tate Modern, I got to see this while I was there...
