The Thames Tunnel Ballerina

This week I and my wife popped up to that there London town for a couple of days break in order to take in a bit of culture. Monday started with a trip to the Victoria and Albert museum and culminated in a fantastic few hours at the O2 Arena where we caught the better-than-expected Marilyn Manson and unbelievably-incredible Rob Zombie in concert. We like to bridge all ends of the cultural spectrum.

Tuesday then saw us wander around Greenwich where we looked over the Royal Observatory and the Cutty Sark and ventured in to see the Ansel Adams exhibition (I went in not really liking Adams' work and left with the same opinion; it's okay, it's just not really me). We also visited the William Klein and Daido Moriyama street photography exhibition at the Tate Modern; now that was much more to my liking and highly recommended.

And one more thing: we walked under the Thames and spotted a tunnel ballerina. I've always wanted to see one in the flesh.

  1. Indeed. It's difficult to snap one in the wild so it helps to have a slower, less agile photographer along as distraction/bait.
