Sharing moments in time…

London Natural History Museum


I have passed this incredible building many times on different trips to London but I had never been inside.  This time I decided to take a little time as there was an exhibit on wildlife photography which is one of my hobbies.  While there, I had to take a few shots of the building itself as it is a work of art.

Anytime I’m in England or in Europe, I always seem to look for gargoyles on the buildings.  This museum has some of the best gargoyles around…….

      It was started in 1873 and opened in 1881. The stone and glass work is amazing.

  2. Wow – great building. Never made it to the natural history museum yet either, spent too long in the British museum last time I was in the capital.

    Enjoy India – I’m green with envy!

    • Hi Susan! We’re on our way back and have had a great trip and adventure. As you know, no photo or set of photos can do justice to all that is India. Hopefully I got a few (of the thousands that I took) that capture SOME of the tradition, culture, and wildlife that are part of India (and Nepal). Let me know if I can ever help with your photography – I am still learning all the time and would love to share my latest experiments!

    • Thanks Lynne – not really my strong point but I’m really glad you liked them! I have many more coming from India and Nepal (as well as my more familiar of subjects like wildlife and people).
