The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
The British Museum is my favorite place in London, and one that I will miss from down here.
Wow the ceiling! Great shot!
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. :)

Excellent shot!!! I really want to visit the British museum. I have never been before, but hubby has, and we plan to visit hopefully in the near future. Happy WW :)
Wow..what a great shot. I love the black and white theme. Happy WW.
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.
What a great pict! It almost makes you dizzy... :-)Happy WW!My post...
Wow!!! Great angle, love the composition and the lines of this one, and it "deserves" the black and white, this one!
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?Bobbie
Nice catch for WW! Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Happy WW!
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.
Stunning shot, amazing lines, and I love your choice of black and white. It makes the geometrics that much more arresting.
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)...
Superb composition and capture. Been there done that.
Great picture! Thanks for giving us a peek! Would love to travel outside the U.S. one day. Enjoy your week!
Hmmm...looks very modernistic! At least the ceiling! Great shot!Happy WW!
impressive photo...the ceiling looked like a cage that locked out the buildings!!happy WW!
I took a similar photo while I was there, too! :D
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.
AWESOME!! Love the lines and shapes!
that's where I'd want to visit if I ever made it to England
Thanks everyone for your kind comments
Great shot. Love the lines.
I love the way you have taken this :-)
Oooh I've been there!! First time I've been able to say that on your blog. LOL!I love the angle of the shot!
That's a great angle. Impressive structural design.Thanks for visiting my other blog.
