Jon Crispin's Notebook

Mr Turner and More

Posted in Architecture, Art, Birds, Buildings, Cities, Jon Crispin, Travel by joncrispin on 08/10/2014

We made it to the Tate Britain today to see the Turner show.  It was amazing.  No photography in the temporary exhibits, so no pics, but oh my, what an exhibit.  He was it.

The rest of the museum was nice.  All Brit artists and huge, with lots of variety.

Walked around London afterwards and saw these coots in St. James’s Park.  I love coots.

Long bus ride out to Hammersmith to have a few pints at The Dove.

To me, it is the nicest and most welcoming pub in London.

John and I have a long history here.  We never made it to the V and A for the Constable exhibit.  Maybe tomorrow or Friday.

    I have been walking past those coots in St James’ Park for the past month (I’ve been running creative writing workshops for children in Buckingham Palace). In the early morning they gather en masse on the river bank and I have been amusing myself by giving them Soprano’s style dialogue. Did you spot the heron? I love London in the autumn

      Lynda, amazing. What a great gig to do the writing workshop at the palace. We did see the heron. Lovely birds. I was back in the park on Saturday. Really my favorite park in London. Best, J

    Jon, I love your photography and your eye for a great picture. The Willard Suitcases was what first brought me here. You always inspire me to go out and photograph more. Could I ask what type of camera(s) you use? The colors are so vibrant. Thanks for all you do here.

      Harry, thanks for your comment and I am pleased that my pictures inspire you. For all the suitcases photos I use full frame Nikon DSLRs. All the other stuff is with Panasonic mirrorless cameras. GX1 and LX7 which is my carry around camera. I have it with me always. Cheers, Jon
