Science Museum of London

4

In every big city I went, I always wanted to visit a science, technics and knowledge museum, were you can spend all day long discovering and exploring many different sections about things you don't know.... Well, in London you have the Science Museum!

The science museum in London is a great place because it’s very interesting about many different things and because you can take pictures of almost everything you see! :) It’s a way of learning many new things about science and what I prefer is the big room of planes, cars and space! Another very interesting part is about optics and history of photography and so many other different subjects.

It’s a very big building of 5 floors, so take a day (or at least an afternoon), to walk through the different sections, take your time to read about all the stuff that you see and get lost in this big area. By the way, have a look at the stairs from the fifth floor, if you like Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” (see my pic).

It’s always fascinating to see all what the humans could invent through the centuries, how the techniques and the knowledge of science and technology were improved through the ages and to give you the society and knowledge we have today! :) The entrance of the museum is free, so you can go there as often as you want if you stay a little bit in London. The museum is in South Kensington, near Albert Hall and south of Hyde Park, (not far away from Harrod’s as well) it’s easy to find, and have a look at the website too for more information ;)

    March Frenzy: Tottenham Takes Over the V&A

    I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
