National Portrait Gallery

Today I went to the National Portrait Gallery. I was mesmerised by the wonderful photography of different photographers through out the last century. I especially loved the work of 1940s film photography Freg Daniels. He was a key photographer in the film industry, with photos published in many leading magazines. Here are a few of my favourite photos of his:

The exhibition was fantastic. I love the traditional authenticity of black and white photography. It is so simplistic, yet can work wonderfully to perfectly capture an era. 

After a quick look around the gallery, we went for tea. The positioning of the room couldn't have been more perfect; in a bright room at the top of the gallery with huge windows displaying all of London Town. The food was yummy too, filled with little finger sandwiches, cups of tea and cute mini squares of raspberry cake, blueberry cheesecake and warm scones. 


This really has been a food dominated weekend. As well as a lot of revision.. Hope you all had a good weekend.
