Photography is hiding in every corner

Underground at Somerset House during Photo London, May 2019

The fifth Photo London is on at Somerset House until 19 May 2019. Virtually every room in this wonderful building is filled with photography, including works by Vivian Maier, Eamonn Doyle and Mary McCartney. Well worth popping in this weekend if you are anywhere nearby.

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtagtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  2. Six Word Saturday: Optical Illusion Hides in the Mirror
    Somerset House brings back memories. I did a lot of family research and it was then the place where the records were held in the UK. I gathered many certificates of long lost family ancestors, births, marriages and deaths. Somerset House, as I remember, is on the bank of the River Thames, a very imposing building. I even had to order my own birth certificate there because I only had the one issued when I was born in 1946. When I married Mr. Swiss in Switzerland, Swiss law only accepted certificates not older than 3 months.

    • Yes, this was its 5th year. The only issue for accessibility is the number of people. There are plenty of ramps and lifts. And there were quite a few people in wheelchairs yesterday, and people pushing prams. It’s not as good as Arles but it’s much easier to do! And there’s good food and drink on site too.
