London Aquarium

I had a lovely day today. Me and the boyfriend finally went to the London Aquarium . Generally when I go to museums, shows, and this time the aquarium I take a billion useless photos. Today it struck me that most of the fish naturally look sad or grumpy, sometimes rather pissed off. So on my way home I decided to make them look a little more cheerful using my Art Studio App.

The Light Show

 Yesterday I woke up bright and early to go to the Light Show exhibit at the Hayward Gallery. Almost all the pieces in this exhibition excited me, which is a rarity. The Light show shows us how light can pyschologically change the way we feel. Different colours can alter our mood. Some of the light artists use our eyes as a aspect of their art; how our vision adjusts to the darkness and the how the longer we look the more we will see. 

This exhibition is definitely worth experiencing. Unfortunately a lot of advanced tickets are already booked up, but if you are willing to go on a weekday and in the morning you are more likely to get a ticket. 

Below are a few photos from the catalogue, some of the photos I have included are in the exhibition and some are not. Unfortunately photography is not allowed in the exhibition so I couldn't provide better examples.:(

Paula Bedwell

Good Morning all you lovely readers,
The sun is finally shining! Isn't it funny how a little bit of sun can wipe away all those depressing winter-blues. So in honor of the sun, and my exceptional mood, I am sharing some of my wonderfully creative friend Paula Bedwell's Photography today. Her photos make me think of the spring, nature and the changing seasons. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

London Natural History Museum

These are some natural history treasures I saw today at the museum . We also visited the Darwin centre and went on the spirit collection tour and got to see a giant squid specimen! I wish I had been able to take a photo. :(
