Warning London! + w46(47,48) feats

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 9, 2009, 11:43 AM

Thursday evening I'm landing out in Stansted. I'll be in London for 2 weeks.
I'll be over at Tate Gallery London for a while working and when I'm not, I'll for sure will explore the citylife through my viewfinder.
If you got some nice suggestions on places to visit while I'm there I'm happy to hear it. Please don't bother mention all the usual tourist places, I'm not interested in those. I wanna explore the heart of london, the old culture and history and not the postcard locations, those I can find on my own.

Sadly, and GREAT timing, my laptop crashed down hard the other day here, the piece of shit doesn't work at all now. UPS coming over tomorrow morning to pick it up and It'll be repaired 'n fixed by the time I get back from UK.
I'll manage but it sure would've been nice to bring the computer due to many reasons, photography being one of them...

The positive side is that it's hopefully fixed and shipped home by the time I get back.

Features will stay week 46,47 & 48 most likely together with the journal.

Any UK people wanna get together? Just let me know.

I'll try manage some subs meanwhile being over, otherwise things will come when I get back home.

Cya later peeps!

If your lens is dirty, DON'T spit on the lens and wipe it with your shirt! - Have a good one, Rob!

Featured up close this week is; :iconmavor:
Mavor - Mavor
With grunge, light, solid shapes and a eye for older architecture with soft compositions Mavor have a wide spectra of art in his gallery. At first I glanced through his gallery not seeing so much I liked but when I slowed down a bit I noticed all kinds of awesome things all around. I think a lot of people rush through things here on DA, don't, since if you are then you as me can miss out on good artist like Mavor. A solid artist with a bright future if he hangs in there!

Thank you so much for the feature!

well... I don't know exactly what you enjoy most but I would suggest to take the London's Time Out magazine... you can see everything that happens in the city and choose accordingly... I would suggest Camden Lock as it is very fun to see it let alone shop and eat at its wonderful outside benches... and if you like Japanese fusion cuisine maybe you should try out the Satsuma restaurant in Soho...

I've moved away from London for 3-4 years now, so maybe I'm not the best source of information... but there also some museums that are worth viewing... like the British Museum (it changes some of its exhibits often and brings some quite interesting ones) and Victoria and Albert Museum...
Oh! if you fancy see some of the West Ends performances then on the day that you want to see the show, you can go in the morning at Leicester Square... there you can find booths selling tickets at a good price... be careful of the visibility that the seats might have, ask the cashier!

if i remember anything else I'll let you know... :D
Have a great time!

Thanks for the advices mate, appreciate it. I'll try explore the city as much as I can. It's a big place to go through with the camera hehe.

Btw, just a side question, do you know of any high/tall staircases? Rather those spiral or likewise that doesn't have a core. You know so that you can stand at the bottom and see all the way up. I hope you get what I mean hehe. Any cool staircases you can suggest is of BIG interest.

I'm not that clear on good places to go in London. Hm. I recormend the Natural History Museum though. It's one of those older victorian buildings so the level of detail in the carving is amazing. It's also free to get in.
I live in the UK, close to Portsmouth so London is within a train journey for me. I'm not sure what I'm doing this week though. How long will you be around for?
