I haven’t dabbled in Black & White photography for a while, but our visit to the London Natural History Museum, in South Kensington, changed that!
I’m still amazed that the museums are free. But that’s for another time.
The Natural History Museum with its fossil bones mesmerised the Little Shires, and rightly so because the dinosaur skeletons are stunning. The sheer size of them is overwhelming.
But then I started looking at the building itself, which is fascinatingly old and intricate but with lots of flair, these ornate, I noticed these elaborate indoor statutory along the walls and ceilings. They are part of the original building, built in 1881, and speaks volumes of the flashiness of the times. I love it!
There’s so much to see at the Natural History museums, especially if you remember to look upwards!
I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
