This past Wednesday, Brit Boy and I went on a day trip to London. It was great to get a day out. We took the train into Paddington Station and then took the tube/subway to the South Kensington Station and arrived to see long queues to get into the Natural History Museum. We thought for a minute that we should maybe give it a pass and just go somewhere else, but then we decided to try for a minute and see how fast things were moving. In the end, it didn’t take much time at all. We got in the shorter of the two queues so it worked out well :-) The museum itself is beautiful to look at. The architecture is extraordinary inside and outside.
Here’s a quick photo of the outside that I took as we shuffled along to get inside.
Here are a few photos from inside too. This is a photo of one of the numerous display cases inside. The collection was really impressive.
Here’s a photo of one of the dinosaurs on display in the main area. It was massive.
And here’s a view of the beautiful inside architecture of the museum. The many arches reminded me of the inside of a church. It was lovely.
We had a really great time. The last thing I want to share is this little video that Brit Boy and I collaborated on. It was filmed with my trusty little retro mini cam. So this is the third in my Mini Cam Moments Series. It’s just a short video showing the view from the train as it speeds along very fast. The video came out kind of weird and atmospheric, so the sound is strange and the video gets wobbly, but I love that it's strange. (smile) I thought that you’d like to see some of what I see when we take the train. It’s been edited together so some of it’s from heading to London and some of it’s from heading away from London. My retro camera made some of the sections with trees pixilated since we were going so fast, but you get the idea of what it looks like during our countryside journey. (smile) There’s also a bit showing what the inside of the museum looks like. So I hope you enjoy it. Have a great weekend! :-)
