Turquoise sari outside King's Cross

Father and Son share a joke at St. Pancras

The following photo
is not part of the collection of pictures above
but I wanted to share it.

One of the things that we did yesterday was to visit the British Museum to see the extraordinary painting from the Ethiopian Christian Church. As it was the last day of the exhibition representatives from the Ethiopian Church were in the great Atrium giving a musical performance. The resonance from the drum and the chanting filled the huge space and it was very moving to see the enthusiasm of the friends and family who had come to support the priests and musicians.

All lovely but oh my word that one of the woman in the turquoise sari is sublime - I would be framing that one!

Ditto to BBMary's comment!

And that blue sky! Looks like you had a lovely May Day.

Sari woman stopped me in my tracks too. There's a photo you want the back-story of.

That kind of performance gives me goose-bumps - I got them from just looking at your photo.

oh, I love London, you lucky thing, and the British Museum! I do love it there.

Lovely photos. The Euston Station one gave me a bit of a pang ;-)

Thank you for calling by. It's great here, I will look forward to returning.

Alice, I am finding that I don't really need to read what you've written because your photos say so much. You are really evolving. You could publish.
