Dec 2011: Crystals at the Natural History Museum #5

Typical, as soon as you think you have completed a series, and then one last bit pops up. This is definitely the last photo essay of our trip to the Natural History Museum in London. This photo essay concentrates on crystals.

I have to point out that I do not have a polariser so the photo’s wont come out as good. Anyway…

Not much to say, but I will go back one day when I have my polariser and then take better pictures, specially macro…

The architecture, as usual, is brilliant. I love this building.

Diya all excited about the meteorite. Did you know Baba…and off she goes telling me all about it. I think its more fun listening to her explain stuff. Like today she said that Claustrophobia is fear of Santa Claus. Betcha you didnt know, did you?

Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
