We took a trip up to London yesterday, for the first time in ages – well, years in fact. The primary purpose was to visit the Proud Gallery Ossie Clark exhibition, along with Mother and The Brother.
Before that though, we had a wander – which gave me an opportunity to try out my new camera – a Nikon D600 with a 24-70 f/2.8 lens. We took the DLR to Canary Wharf, took some photos around there and then walked down to the river, under the Thames via the tunnel and to Greenwich. I reckon the last time I was there was about 35 years ago – the Isle of Dogs has changed a little!
At the Royal Maritime Museum we took in their Ansel Adams exhibition. Some seriously gorgeous prints – the first time I’ve seen originals of his. The large print of “Clearing Winter Storm” was just fantastic.
Afterwards, we headed over to Chelsea to see the exhibition – my dad’s four prints look wonderful, and not out of place at all. Really chuffed to see them on show.
Anyway, these are a few of the photos I took – the new camera seems to be OK!
