A Walk Through London

Went to see the Malevich exhibition at the Tate Modern yesterday. I go to see most of their featured shows, usually coming away with mixed feelings, but this one lived up to the hype. If like me you're a fan of the Russian Constructivists this is one not to miss. Note - it's not running for much longer.

Did my usual walk around the City before my allotted time in the afternoon, making sure to see the poppies at The Tower on the way. Having been blown to pieces wandering around the East End for hours in blustering wind and showers it was a great delight to see the sun breaking out occassionally on the vast swathes of red around the moat. It's an overwhelming sight, reminding me ironically of of a previous exhibition at the Tate - the Ai Weiwei Sunflower Seeds, both having the same mind boggling parallel in trying to comprehend infinity on a human scale!

Hope you enjoy a small selection of the many snaps I took along the way ...................

St. Katherines Dock

I am completely awestruck by the 'Walkie-Talkie'.  Its sheer volume (no pun intended) overpowering all around it.

I think The Shard is pretty impressive as well. It captures the ambient lighting superbly and you can photograph it from pretty much anywhere!

The new addition to the Tate Modern advancing rapidly

Cranes wherever you look

And finally - Full marks for the originality of this parked on the embankment!

Sea Mist

Here's a sequence of shots I took over the course of just a few minutes last month as a very heavy sea mist rolled in at Hengistbury Head - aided and abetted by the Saraha Desert we were told.

Easter Lambs

Couldn't resist stopping and grabbing some shots of these characters as I was driving through Cranborne Chase over the Easter holiday ......

And then met up with these a bit later on in the Nadder Valley ......
