Out and about in London, pt.2


More photos from London! I have to say, making these posts makes me miss it so much...


I don't know if I mentioned this before, but the main reason for this trip was the Blur reunion concert in Hyde Park. Even Frank the Rabbit made an appearance! :) There were a few other support bands, the only decent picture was of Florence and the machine though, she was amazing! Blur were great, they defined '90s for me and they played all their hit songs, the whole crowd was going wild! We missed you, guys!

While we were there, we learned about an exhibition of nude photographs of Madonna, which she posed for when she was a struggling dancer and we decided to check it out. The gallery was tiny, and the photographs were on sale for thousands of pounds, so we made do with couple of postcards. It's uncanny how much Lourdes looks like a younger version of her mother!

Michael Jackson memorial wall on Piccadilly Circus. Filled with photos, letters and flowers.



Covent Garden and Leicester Square, the area full of cinemas and theaters.


We didn't go to any musicals though, instead opted for Waiting for Godot, with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. Superb play and great performances, we really enjoyed it.




Walking back to our hotel, we saw a cute sex ad on the pavement. So, if you're looking for a leggy blonde, you know what to do.

Your trip looks and sounds amazing Natalie! I love your photographs... really gives a feeling of being there. I can see how it makes you miss the place too, that happens to me too when I look at old holiday photos. I would've freaked out a bit if I'd seen Frank there... :D
