My Year in Photos – April 20th – "Looking down on the Globe", originally uploaded by henweb.
I spent this afternoon doing a Tate double-whammy, in preparation for the Tamar 15th Birthday celebrations. The venue for our party is the Tate Modern, so a couple of us headed over there to check out the options we have for party spaces – today’s photo is the view from my favourite one, on the 7th floor. The room has 3 entirely-windowed sides looking out across the city, including this view of Shakespear’s Globe Theatre and the City in the background.
After that we got on to a Thames Clipper boat and whizzed down to the Tate Britain, where we were choosing which canapes to serve at the party – it’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it!
Annoyingly, the excellence of my afternoon was soon ruined by a gas explosion at Maidenhead which was stopping all trains leaving London on the main train line, so what usually would have taken me 30 minutes took me almost 3 hours! D’oh….
