Walking around Thrapston gravel pits in Northamptonshire brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. With many of the trees still bare I decided to try out some of the black and white filter pre-sets in Adobe Lightroom. Here were a few of the results.
With the sun shining, like many other people, we took to the countryside. As a child I was often taken to Thrapston gravel pits at the weekend, for a walk, and usually, to feed the ducks. There will be another blog post shortly which shows a little more of what the area looks like, but this post focuses on the details. There were a few signs that Spring is on it’s way too.
With a couple of hours to spare at the weekend we spent a while taking a leisurely stroll around Hyde Park – I walk through the park every day but just straight through following the road, so I haven’t really had the time to explore the area.
While it may be the dinosaurs that draws people to the Natural History Museum it is home to so much more.
Even the building decoration was in-theme, but it was always designed to be home to items relevant to natural history. This is probably the closest I will ever get to a tiger!
I don’t often get the chance to do any photography in the evening in London. When I finish work I’m usually just in a hurry to get the train home, so it was nice to have a bit of time to see London after dark.
I feel I need to try Jamie’s Diner here – just because they have a neon dinosaur sign.
We completed the evening by a trip to the Gielgud Theatre to see Strangers on a Train. I mainly wanted to see this because Jack Huston (of Boardwalk Empire fame) was in it, but would definitely recommend it.
When visiting the Natural History Museum in London we noticed there was a lot of activity outside the Venezuelan Embassy. It turns out there was an anti-government demonstration taking place not only in London but in many European cities.
