London Street photography

Had a quick visit to London today and managed to take in the " London Street Photography" exhibition at the Museum of London.





The exhibition started in the 1890's when the first photos were taken of London Street life and it presents a fascinating case for observing ordinary life playing itself out " almost " unobserved bar the lens of the photographer ..

To say photography was nit permitted in the exhibition but here are sneak preview of one if my favourite images from an artists point of view




The exhibition runs until September 2011 and if you are in the area it's well worth a peek ... if not the website has lots of interesting photos and info displayed too .. from leica cameras to the modern iPhone street photography

a lonely hen

I love surprises, taking little moments in time to stop and look and sometimes one cat help but to smile ...



we were mooching around the streets of Falmouth when I spotted this little beauty hiding underneath a lamppost .. complete with freshly grown spring grass ... def made me stop and smile and struck up a conversation with some locals who saw me kneeling down with my camera ... the had past the same spot daily and simply never noticed this beautiful hen :)

~~~~~~~~~




there were also some interesting plaques that indicated an old seatown walkway from way back in 1688 , an old seaside trade route ... we did not have time to visit the marine museum but hope to be back to Falmouth at another date as we enjoyed our little lunchtime stopover peek :)

improvised beach art journaling

improvised beach art journaling

-- cornwalls beautiful beaches are filled with either glorious stretches of sand or craggy rocks ... and these flat stones were just waiting for a few journal doodles ...


- some stone surfaces lend themselves better than others ... so I tried various ones by finding a pointed tip stone and dragging it over the surfaces to create an imprinted pattern ... quite meditative ...
