"it is thinking about raining"

vera is pulling a residential trailer AND an old land rover which seems to be used as a shed on wheels for tools, firewood, coal, etc ... and why not ?

turning the pages at the british library web site

the "sacred" exhibition at the british library has some of the most marvellous books in the world for you to get up close to, but don't despair if you can't get there, just click on to their link and soon you'll be turning the pages yourself

life-sized figures on each side of the front door at the new "wellcome collection"

"she had a heart" from the excellent heart exhibition in the new "wellcome collection"

sorry to tell you it is a poor reproduction of a luminous & rather mischievous painting by a spanish artist, enrique simonet lombardo

the exhibition is worth travelling for, although you'll need an iron constitution to sit through the spectacular film of heart surgery, and it is just along the street from the fabulous "sacred" exhibition at the british library

both exhibitions are free
