an eye for the mundane

Monthly Archives: January 2005

we took the girls to london yesterday to go to the V&A museum, followed by a walk to Oxford Circus (via the Diana Memorial, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus).
The V&A is a funny old place. We didn’t get on very well thanks in part to a tired kezia, but depsite quite a few activity things for kids, it’s not really ‘their’ sort of museum – ie lots of boring things in display cases !
But just look at the size of these things on display !

here’s a new category for the new year. i’ve decided to try and take photos of people and things inside empty picture frames and display boxes.
the Victoria and Albert Museum is excellent for this at the moment as there seems to be lots of displays with nothing in (probably because they’ve all been stolen !)
here’s one to get us started. it’s esther and me:

i’m still surprised to see new numbered signs at paddington, so i was delighted to see all these different Page 160s in Paddington yesterday on New Year’s Eve.
