Ai Weiwei, Clock and Leaf

13 Nov

Visiting The Royal Academy is always a treat when we visit London. Today the exhibition was of the works of Ai Weiwei and it was most affecting, some humour, more tragedy and revelations about his treatment in China both in prison and out. Click on the gallery for detail and information.

The clock across the road from the RA has figures which appear on the hour.

Our second visit was to the VandA  where I found this beautiful Autumn leaf. Please forgive the disorganised post. OS 9 on the iPad is driving me crazy!  I’ll add photos later.

    The sculpture showed up in my reader, but was not on the post. I’ll come back later.. these things seem to happen like magic. 😦

      How very strange! I think the photos may have to wait until we get home next week! 😬

        Don’t worry about it. I wrote my comment for information purposes and not a complaint. Enjoy your week.

    OS9 is a takes a little getting used to. iCloud sync for your photos helps a lot. I had to upgrade to 20 Gb Then they gave me 50 for the same $0.99 / mo. So much easier than saving my pics to my PC all the time. Download the free OS 9 guide in iBooks :-). Can’t wait to see the pics !
