London through a Lens

Dear friends, I'm really sorry about that I'm being a bit M.I.A. recently. I've been completely tied up with my work and too busy to keep up some of my "leisure" stuffs, so I seriously apologies for not blogging and commenting enough... and hope all of you have been more than OK and thank you for everyone's understanding. I will try my best to catch up with you gradually.

Meanwhile, I want to tell folks who are around London a fantastic exhibition -
London though a Lens. If you love photography and the city, it will be a perfect day out! London though a Lens has gathered all sorts of rare and hard-to-get archives taken in London from Getty Images, from anonymous Londoners to famous names behind the cameras, such as the Beatles, the Kray brothers, Thurston Hopkins, Terry Fincher and Terry O’Neill; from private collections to commercial photography, and etc.

Location:
Getty Images Gallery, 46 Eastcastle Street
London, W1W 8DX
Time: 21 August 2008 - 27th September 2008

Oh, if you cannot make it, but are still very much interested it, you can get the book from Amazon -
London though a Lens (Time Out Guides) (Paperback)

Here are some samples :)

Sounds awesome, thanks for the heads up! Hope to go to London to see some more exhibitions as I haven't been in a long time.
It seems that loads of bloggers are quite busy at the moment! I certainly haven't got back into the routine of posting often!

Life happens, my dear, and you are entitled to attend to it! You can't be expected to take/pose in beautiful pictures all the time! ;)

Hey Miss L, welcome back! I know how difficult it can be finding time to blog while trying to juggle other work. At the end of the day, it's your blog and you can post as many times as you want to/are able to!

These archival photographs of London are remarkable! I love the first one!

KATLIN said...

Those pics are wonderful! I love the hoop skirts being piled onto their carriage! Even though their clothes were larger and lots of layers, they seemed to wear less because of money and practicality. We probably take as much as they do, but in cotton jersey!
