The British Museum is my favorite place in London, and one that I will miss from down here.

Wow the ceiling! Great shot!

Lord James Bigglesworth said...

Quite inspiring, that's true. Plus your site was easier to access today.

Jams, a few people have mentioned you in connection with being a Panellist. Let me put the hard sell on you later in the week. :)

That's a great shot. I visiting the British museum in 1974 when I was a teenager. I imagine there have been lots of changes. I wish I could go back. Carver Wordless

Jim said...

I would like to visit the British Museum. I have been there, just sat in the foyer for a moment and went out another door than the one I where I entered.

Mrs. Jim visited last time she was in London and got to see the Rosetta Stone. I am envious of the both of you.

Tonight we are in Salina, Kansas, and hoping to be in Nebraska tomorrow.

Truly a fantastic and inspiring ceiling. Makes me want to be an architect and create such things.

jientje said...

Wow!!! Great angle, love the composition and the lines of this one, and it "deserves" the black and white, this one!

The Right Blue said...

What, no flower photo this week? Seriously, this is a wonderful image. I wonder if any one person ever has seen all there is to see in the British Museum?

Snap Catch said...

Nice catch for WW! Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Happy WW!

Raven said...

Gorgeous photo! I love the angle from which you have caught all the wonderful angles and shapes and textures... and the black and white makes it richer and more dramatic I think.

Robin said...

Stunning shot, amazing lines, and I love your choice of black and white. It makes the geometrics that much more arresting.

lareine said...

the geometric lines are great! it gives the museum a modern look (as oppose to the "stuffy" stereotype look of museums)... this is a wonderful shot (and using black and white adds more emphasis to the pattern)...

Gallicissa said...

Superb composition and capture. Been there done that.

Deanna said...

Great picture! Thanks for giving us a peek! Would love to travel outside the U.S. one day. Enjoy your week!

June said...

Bravo!

Katya said...

Hmmm...looks very modernistic! At least the ceiling! Great shot!

Happy WW!

Leonard said...

impressive photo...
the ceiling looked like a cage that locked out the buildings!!

happy WW!

The Lone Beader said...

I took a similar photo while I was there, too! :D

Julia Smith said...

I love everything about this shot - the black & white, the foreground, the background and the way the circular pattern of the ceiling radiates from part of the foreground. Really nice.

Erin Faye said...

AWESOME!! Love the lines and shapes!

just say these words said...

that's where I'd want to visit if I ever made it to England

jams o donnell said...

Angie said...

CherryPie said...

Heart of Rachel said...
