28 Aug: A London Day Out

My friend came over on a trip to the UK from Canada and we met up for a day in London.  So I ended up doing typical tourist things for once with not a gallery in sight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We began at Covent Garden before going on to China Town and then Leicester Square.  It is always a great opportunity to do some ‘people watching’ and take some images too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We ended the day with a river trip up the Thames.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5 March: ‘Thread & Word’ Walk in London

Elspeth invited me to join this walk which was not part of the ‘TSE Walking Group’.  It began at the Espacio Gallery, Bethnal Green and finished at Leadenhall  Market.  Everyone was given a rope to record their journey.IMG_2330

Readings from Cecilia Vicuna’s poem ‘Thread & Word’ were made by members of the group in various locations.

As Elspeth pointed out, we were collaborating to celebrate the threads that bring us together.
