Two museums and tapas

On Saturday I joined a Meetup.com in London for Photography at the Grants Museum of Zoology, near Euston.  I didn’t actually know this place existed!  It’s quite small and houses 68,000 specimens.  I really enjoyed it, especially as someone who loves biology.  From the photography side, it was a very good opportunity to practice taking photos in low light and through glass.  The highlight for me was the huge python skeleton.

I had lunch with a friend in South Kensington at Casa Brindisa.  This was on her recommendation and I was pleasantly surprised!  The tapas were really good, and I would go back for the chorizo in cider.  Mmmm….

And after this we went to the V&A to check out the Alexander McQueen exhibition.  I just went along for the ride, but I’m glad I did.  Obviously I’d heard of his name, and I was really impressed by his originality and passion for his art.  I felt quite artistically inspired – I even went home and did a painting the next day!

It’s worth having a look if you get the chance.
