On Friday we walked through Regents Park and there was an art display going on. This is my favourite picture from there.

The red frames had images within them that changed as you moved with them, and were perfectly arranged to match the background.

Very cool!

The first of the photos from our France trip have been uploaded. This one is Dean and I in Marseilles.

We have around 2000 photos, so it's going to take a while to sort through them all. :)

Gilbert & George
Originally uploaded by littlestar19.

After yum cha, we headed into the Tate Modern to see the Gilbert & George exhibition. I had never heard of them before, so had no idea what to expect, whereas Dean was really wanting to see it.

The art on show was a retrospective, so started with charcoal sketches frm 1969 onto work they did last year. Personally, I much preferred there early work, which was stark, black and white's with splashes of red. Most of their work has an image of them in it somewhere. And a lot of it is quite confronting, either because of the language used, or the imagery (naked men, religious symbols etc). The later stuff though, I really didn't like. They started working on the computer, so it just had a different feel, and they started using dodgy beveled fonts, and some of it felt like they'd knocked it up in photoshop in 10 minutes.

However, because they use images of themselves, it was like watching them grow old. 30 years worth of photos, you could watch them age before your eyes. It also meant you could see when societal attitudes started to change. In their early work, they were both pictured, but rarely together. As the years went on, they were featured closer together. The first time you see them standing next to each other, touching, is amazing. They're also naked in that photo whcih really adds to it.

There were way too many people in the gallery though, and I felt like I was constantly pushing my way through people. This was also my first trip to a Gallery in London, so it's probably just something I'm going to have to get used to. I'm used to the quiet of the Art Gallery in Brisbane, where I could sit and look at a painting for ages without having masses of people walk in front of me.

Now I just need to start going to galleries more, especially since they're mostly free, and I am meant to saving money. :)

This is one of the best photos we took yesterday on our anniversary outing. We were proper tourists and walked all around Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, before walking through St James Park and Trafalgar Square to get to Piccadilly Circus.

I took lots of photos, though they're mostly a little grainy...I had my camera on the wrong setting! Still I'll be doing some messing around with them, and uploading some soon.

This is a photo I took yesterday of my street. My building is about halfway along.

It's been a weekend of absolutely lovely days, and today is no exception. Unfortunately, today is stay at home and do uni work day.

Dean and I messing about yesterday. We had an Easter lunch at Jen's brother's place, which was absolutely fantastically yummy. :)

Yesterday, it being both a long weekend and a wonderfully sunny day, we ventured to Hampstead Heath for wandering and exploring.

It was a lovely lovely day, and we wandered through the grounds, and ended up at Kenwood House where we had coffee (and I had an ice cream) and looking through the portrait gallery there.

Afterwards we ended up at the Spaniards Inn, a fantastic pub that was first build in 1585 and over the years has been frequented by people like John Keats and Charles Dickens. It's a pub that's now been added to our list of top 10 favourite pubs in London.

I've uploaded about 40 photos from yesterday! It was so beautiful that most of my photos turned out fantastic and it was so hard to choose what ones to upload and which ones to not, so I uploaded most of them!

Another photo from our Sunday walk....blurry, but I like it that way. Jen took it while walking, pointing the camera behind her.

Small house

This little house was just too cute not to take a photo, especially with the big blocks behind it.

I took photos of the snow yesterday! It's all gone now, and we *might* get more, but I don't think we will.

It made our street look so pretty! This is the view from our back window.

I've uploaded a couple of photos from Dusseldorf to my flickr also. There's not too many at the moment, just a selection.

Though now that I have my own camera expect more photos! And I have a pro account at flickr now, so I don't have to worry about limits.

Xmas Tree!

O Goth Xmas Tree

This is our black and pink xmas tree. It's still lacking a topper, but there is a definite lack of nice stars/toppers around.

We even have pressies under it! :)

The fluff ball in the front is our pink flamingo. :) he's made of glass and fluff. :)

Also! Dean has put up a small gallery of photos from Dusseldorf here if you're interested.

It's been ages since I posted a picture of Dean and I. It's not the best, but it's the most recent.
