Great Court, British Museum

Saturday 3rd September 2016, 10.40am (day 1,836)

This is at least the third and possibly the fourth post taken inside the British Museum. It’s as good a place to kill a couple of hours of a London morning as anywhere — lots to see, and remarkably, still free of charge. Of course, this is us Britons being magnanimous in return for all those colonies that provided the treasures, but hey. It’s a nice place architecturally too. (Incidentally this is also the blog’s 50th London shot.)

Great Court, 19/12/14

A weekend in London, and a second appearance on the blog this year for the British Museum — well, it’s too big to see on one trip. As you’ll see from tomorrow’s picture as well, I’m in a monochrome mood just now.

In the British Museum

Saturday 16th August 2014, 3.15pm (day 1,087)

British Museum, 16/8/14

Following the visit to the Vatican a few weeks back, here I am in another of the world’s great museums. Specfically, the Ancient Egyptian room on the ground floor, home to the Rosetta Stone and various other famous relics. I like this shot simply because of the light. It might be better without the little explanatory squares of text, but what can you do.
