When we moved to the London area I vowed to try and get into the city at least once a week.
Yesterday I planned a visit to The Photographer's Gallery on Ramillies St.
I read that it was the largest public gallery in London dedicated to photography.
Being a girl that can not resist a photo, I decided it was the place for me.
After a wander, I proceeded to the Gallery Bookshop.
My favourite part of any excursion.
I can never resist postcards and added these few to my collection.
How gorgeous is Angelica Huston in the one above?
Herb Ritts was the photographer.
A beautiful image.
The rest of the cards follow the storyline of my day.
After visiting the Gallery, I felt the need for
a little time out and stopped into a cafe for lunch.

I like to relax, write,
and watch the crowd pass by.
As you can see below,
I am still thinking about Mrs. Greville :)
and the man in the white suit below.
The photo above was taken by Jacques-Henri Lartique.
I wonder what ever happened to the notion of using parasols in summer?
With that I moved on, weaving in and out of one shop after another.
Wondering when I would eventually find the perfect summer shoes.
If only it was as easy for me as the ladies below..
I love that some things never change and am secretly thinking that
these cat eye glasses just might be the thing for me.
Maybe as a pair of reading glasses:)
All thoughts now focused on the weekend!
Wishing you a wonderful one!
