London Festival of Photography

The second annual London Festival of Photography is upon us, with scores of photographs on show in venues in King’s Cross, Bloomsbury, Euston, Fitzrovia and beyond. Some venues are more predictable than others, with exhibitions taking place at the British Museum and the Museum of London, but the venues are pleasantly mixed, with a rather interesting exhibition the other evening on the concourse at St Pancras Station.

For more information visit: http://www.lfph.org/

The Great British Public, is a pleasant look at life in Britain, with work by John Angerson, Nick Cunard, Arnhel de Serra, Zed Nelson and others, but barely scratches the surface of the month-long series of events, exhibitions and workshops which continue until 1st July.

Old Sign, Farringdon Station

Buffet & Restaurant: an old and probably original sign, in Edwardian style script, uncovered during building works at Farringdon underground station, in central London. The curved glass windows are also a typical Edwardian period feature.

It's an age thing

I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognises you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, and I don’t remember what country I was in.  It’s an age thing….
