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.
There’s a cool footbridge over the motorway in Coventry, which I cross every day on my way into and back from work. I’ve been trying to capture people walking on it for a couple of weeks now, and I’m not sure I’m totally happy with the results. Here’s my favourite so far.
One of the exciting things about exploring cities is finding unexpected details. When I moved to the Victoria Park area of Manchester this was one of my favourite discoveries. It’s just a statue but it adds character to what else would just be another green space.
