Henri Cartier-Bresson01

There are some photo exhibitions in London which we were thinking to visit since weeks and today was the day. We visited three of them in a row. First we walked to Somerset House to visit Cartier Bresson: A Question of Color photo exhibition. The exhibition is questioning the colour in the photography, with Henri Cartier-Bresson’s ten black & white photos never exhibited before in the UK and  colour photos of 14 international photographers. The photography lovers should not miss this exhibition. Exhibition is free and open until 27 January 2013 in Somerset House.

Paul Wenham-Clark01

After Cartier-Bresson exhibition, we went to Soho, to our favorite tea shop to buy some jasmin tea, then we walked to Trafalgar Square and visited Paul Wenham-Clark’s photo exhibition The Westway at The Gallery in the Crypt, in St. Martin in the Fields. It was our first exhibition visit in this gallery, we didn’t hear about him before either and we are glad to meet his works now. Paul Wenham-Clark’s documentary photos in this exhibition, show parts of lifes of the people who are living around A40 road. The exhibition is free and open until 28 February 2013 at The Gallery in the Crypt.

Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize01

The last photo exhibition of the day for us was The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2012 at the National Portrait Gallery. We really loved some of them but generally, the photos choosed for the exhibion of the prize (except some frames) little bit dissapointed us. The exhibition’s ticket prize is £2 and is open until 17 February 2013.

After visited three exhibition we were feeling really hungry and popped-up in Chinatown Gerard Street for a chinese no limit buffet treat to our stomacs. Lofffly friday!

In winter, there are lots of ice rinks around London. Even we are not big fun of practising, as members of a generation who grown up with ice skating championships -Katarina Witt, Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov,  etc.- in one channel tv at the beginning of 80’s, we like to watch it.

This year, during christmas time we visited two ice rinks in Hyde Park Winter Wonderland and Somerset House. It’s was funny and very christmassy.

If you like ice skating or watching people ice skating, Somerset House ice rink is open untill 22 January.  Don’t miss the last days.
