A Little Jaunt Into London

Along with the wonderful trip to the Festival of Quilts I was able to tag along with my husband into London via the train for a day trip.  While he had a business meeting, I had an adventure!  Thanks to my London friends I was all set to wander in a new (to me) outdoor market and go to the Tate Modern to take in the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition.
Taking a picture of the guy taking a.....well. #nerd

Nice train ride into London with my guy.
I. Love. Trains.

After parting ways I heading into the Tube..

I love subway travel and people-watching.

And double-decker London buses.

Claire told me about the Borough Market (she is a foodie, too)
and I was so happy she did.  I loved wandering here!



color and texture...

The Shard

I sneaked this photo in the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition because I simply
adored watching this little girl.  She approached this large installation 
and stood right in the center looking at it, then broke into dance.
She is twirling around and around, so exuberant.  She captured the true 
essence of being inspired by a visual experience, in my mind.

Claire encouraged me to go to the members lounge for tea.
The view up there was stunning!  I sent this image to my 
youngest daughter and she responded by saying,
"I thought the Death-Eaters destroyed that bridge!"
If you are a Harry Potter person you will get that.

Rotko.  Love.

The ruins of Winchester Palace.

Texture on the wall of a church.  So interesting!

Back to the Tube.

Back to Birmingham on another train.
I had such a good day!
Thanks for coming along with me!
