Hey Beautiful People,
I know, I know…I have been AWOL, but adulting has got me focused on anything else other than updating my blog / socials.
But…I am back.
Please forgive me if I do a little bit of catching up with what I have been up to and I will start with an activity I did with my family back in February during the school half-term.
The weather in London suddenly got a break and there was not a cloud to be seen in the sky. It was cold, but the sunshine was glorious.
AAAAANNDDDDD…..LONDON IS BEAUTIFUL when the sun comes out to play.
So, my family and I went out for the day. I love art installations and Tate Modern had a very interactive one called “ONE TWO THREE SWING” by Danish artists’ collective called SUPERFLEX. You can read all about it here.
After visiting Tate Modern, we took a stroll down the river side of the Thames and we found that the tide was low and we could actually go down to the banks. This for me (and the kids) was a first and it was nice.
All in all, I didn’t know how the day would turn out, but I managed to capture a few pictures and some footage for my Youtube channel. So here goes…
St Paul’s Cathedral – Up close and from a distance. Told you London is beautiful when the sun comes out to play.
One Two Three Swing Installation in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern – I just loved how interactive this art installation was and I wish there are more like this in the future.
The kids enjoying the artwork. It was actually kind of fun swinging with another person. See me having a go in my video below.
This huge ball was actually swinging above people sitting on the colourful carpet as part of the installation. Pretty cool stuff!
If you haven’t been in the Turbine Hall in Tate Modern, this part of the floor slopes. If you watch my video, you will see my kids actually rolling down it. The Turbine Hall is a very impressive space even when it is empty. You can just get lost in your thoughts in whilst you are in there. I just love it!
Last shots of the day…
The skyline of London with St Paul’s, The Leadenhall Building aka “The Cheesegrater” and 20 Fenchurch Street aka “The Walkie Talkie” seen on the horizon.
Random kayakers on River Thames shot from the banks of the river.
Looking back at these images just reminded me of how much I love photographing London. I even started a series of images under Snapping London and I think I will definitely get back to it. This one of St Paul’s that I shot back in 2009 as part of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk, brings back awesome memories of just being in the moment and meeting new people with similar photographic passions.
Do you think I should revive my Snapping London series?
