I’ve posted pictures of St Andrew’s Church and churchyard many times. I finally went in and took some pictures.
Billed as the largest art space outside London, The Turner Contemporary (named for JMW Turner, the English landscape painter) was somewhat disappointing from the point of view of how much art there was to see. Here I’ve shown images that are mostly more about the space and the light than the exhibits. Click any image to see them all enlarged.

Looking Out on a Cool Evening
Seen out a rainy window at Autograph, London. Below a version where I focussed past the glass at the wall opposite.
Modern galleries present a lot of opportunities to take stark, geometric pictures.
Another Rainy Train to London
We did some more gallery-hopping a couple of Fridays ago and once again it was raining. The top image is at the same place as a similar image posted a week or two ago which we saw them erecting last time. It’s a billboard for Klarna, offering to let you stretch out your payments, the long orange stripe being a dachshund, more of a stretch as a metaphor than a series of extended payments to my mind.
A window looking out on a little courtyard. The smears on the stuff in the window looked like hands rising up to me. The mirror in the bottom image didn’t seem to be able to reflect me, and was angled in such a way as to create a little bit of a trompe l’oeil effect with the glass bowl in the reflection different from the stone bowl in the foreground.

The Naked Truth
…is a fine place for reflection.
Reflection of the library shelves through the library window an reflected back onto it from the building opposite.
The next morning, in bright sunlight, I noticed the reflection from the window on the kitchen backsplash (see last post).
