lovelondonscenes – 84

I went to the Sigmar Polke exhibition to the Tate Modern yesterday. Took this shot out of one of the windows on a gloomy, rainy morning. The Millenium Bridge and St Paul’s centre ground. Treated a bit on iPhotos for effect. Kind of inspired by the exhibition!


After the Polke, I went to the Conflict, Time, Photography exhibition which is a brilliant, though rather sobering photographic portrayal of man’s inhumanity to man, from the American Civil war onwards. (More of this in a future blog). By the time I was out of that, the weather had completely changed.

This one is a straight iPhone effort. The sky is so blue it could be Canaletto! Well, you know what I mean.

    Small world. I was at Conflict – Time in the afternoon. We nearly coincided.

    I’ll be interested to read your view of it. I thought it was a superb conception, but found the execution slightly mixed. Though when it was good, it was very, very good…..

    Like the two pics!

      Yes, I came out of the conflict-Time exhibition at about 3pm, had some lunch in the cafe on the 3rd floor, finished my Premier League blog and left about 4. Planning to write a piece on the various shows I saw last week. But a quick one on beer first!
