Yesterday I took a day trip to London with my eldest son and it rained on us. We went to see the Anish Kapoor exhibit 'Turning the World Upside down' in Kensington Gardens. The mirrors were spectacular even in the rain - we'd love to go back and see them on a better day though.
We went to the Saatchi Gallery too. Particular favourites of ours were Swarm by Tessa Farmer - amazingly detailed and slightly eerie tiny tiny skeletal figures riding on the backs of insects. And 20:50 by Richard Wilson. He has flooded the basement with recycled sump oil - when you walk in it takes a moment - at least! - to realise what you are looking at. The effect is just amazing, very peaceful but perhaps slightly sinister with the faint smell of oil... this is a permanent exhibit and it's well worth the trip just to see that.
I didn't take any pictures inside but I did take these lovely shots outside of trees reflected on the beautiful stone slabs. I wouldn't have got these without the rain!
We did a bit of shopping, and a lot of walking, and today we are back home again, rather footsore to say the least!
