London

One of the things I like the most is taking a peek into other people’s homes, and the London front doors and windows are so rich of details… with just a quick overview from the outside you can play guessing games about what it would look like inside or about the people who lives in there

from the the monothematic to the eclectic

to the trend of color coordination that I spotted in the stylish Portobello area

London

This last time in London I programmed to visit the Lowry exhibition at the Tate Britain

LITTLELULU_Compo_Lowry_02

I chose a rainy morning as it was the perfect weather for a museum visit but I really couldn’t have made a better choice as when I came out and found myself in front of the Thames under the falling rain I felt as I was walking inside a Lowry painting.

I really fell in love with this british artist that catched in his paintings all the poetry of the urban daily life of the industrial britain: be sure not to miss this great exhibition that is going on until the 20th October

paper art

LITTLELULU_Compo_Saatchi_Paper_01

On my London days I went back to visit the Saatchi Gallery, which currently host an exhibition called “Paper” (going on until the 3rd of november)

the paper was the support or the main constructing material for the young artists artworks

What I love about this place is that sometimes you get catched by the artworks themselves

and other times by watching the people who move around the gallery big spaces.

five random holidays notes

LITTLELULU_Compo_1Mushrooms

  • Incredibly few mushrooms around. People that know something about them say that a prolific year is followed by a poor one: ever heard about that? Anyway you don’t get wrong if you trust the old popular knowledge. I think it is the first time I didn’t spotted even a single Amanita muscaria, but I’m happy to have eaten at least a few chanterelles.

LITTLELULU_Compo_2Snail

  • This must be the year of the snail: I saw lots of snails and shells in every place I visited. Apparently they’re not only in the mountains: they’ve been happily eating plants on a few family and friends balconies and I saw the cauliflowers of the urban vegetable gardens in Paris all eaten up :) Some snails expert between you that can bring some explanations?

LITTLELULU_Compo_3CowMilk

  • Curious to see as lactose-free cheeses and vegetal milks are now everywhere, even in places where milk is one of the most common traditional foods as in the mountain regions of Austria. Even gluten-free products and rice cakes are available in even the tiniest village supermarket.

LITTLELULU_Compo_4Ants

  • Ants are impossible to photograph! All the close-up pictures I attempted are blurred as they move too fast! Any tips? I also still wonder if they do sleep at night…

LITTLELULU_Compo_5Insects

  • It always amazes me to see how many things are going on at the same time on just a few inches of grass.
