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.
