Sunday along the Southbank

21 May

On Sunday T and I took a walk along the Southbank towards the Tate Modern to go and have a look at the Yayoi Kusama exhibit (more of which later).  These are just some photos I snapped while we wandered.

We walked from Waterloo Station towards the river between the Royal Festival Hall and the BFI.  I hadn’t spotted a series of mosaic pictures of ‘celebrities’ before.   I don’t know if I have just been unobservant and missed them or if they are new.  Anyone know?

We passed this rather dapper looking man looking at the books under the bridge.

Not a particularly interesting picture but not every day you see swans this far down on the Thames.

Someone had left a paper flower which I thought looked good with St Paul’s in the back.  And then I spotted the ladybird.

And then spotted the best grafitti I have ever seen in London.  I had my prime lense on so couldn’t zoom out to give you more setting to the picture.  Imagine a whole lot of bridge drawings to the left.  So funny.  I almost walked past without noticing but thought it seemed pretty strange when the word “Argos” caught my eye.
