I’ve been ill this week so unfortunately I haven’t been able to take any new shots. Instead, I’m finally getting round to putting up these from last weekend when I was on the South Bank. From these, you wouldn’t even have an inkling that it’s November. You might from my lack of voice, though.



Tate Modern

I hadn’t been to the Tate Modern since Miroslaw Balka’s box of darkness, How It Is,¬†was installed in the Turbine Hall last year. I should really go more often because it’s one of my favourite galleries. The exhibitions are always well curated, with an excellent variety of pieces, both aesthetic and thematic. I didn’t even go into the Gaugin exhibition this time, but I still stumbled across many pieces that I love, including some old favourites and some I’d never seen before. Go, go, go.



Real Food Market


(Can you tell I really, really miss bread?)

The Real Food Market is another example of making fresh, local produce accessible in the city. We’ve already taken a look at Chiswick Farmer’s Market, but the Real Food Market is right at the heart of London, on the South Bank. Located just behind the Royal Festival Hall, there is a wide range of products on sale to suit most tastes. We tried brownies and churros, but the savoury offerings looked (and smelled) amazing too. Check it out on the first weekend of every month.
