Old pictures November 17, 2005Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
I am getting awfully good at stealing ideas from the DJ, for which I apologise profusely. His old picture has made me think of this old picture, taken from the National Gallery Website. Lovely images of London’s environs not so very long ago. And no, this isn’t an excuse for me to moan about what a shit-hole London’s become, because those churches are (I’m guessing) still there and are thriving. London is especially good at mixing the old with the new, and this is one of its great strengths. (Hopefully this won’t lead to London paintings from the National Gallery now being gratuitously uploaded here left, right and centre.)
