Off to the smoke

Had a fabulous day out on Thursday ... Ventured up to London on some special offer tickets that were bought weeks ago.... How lucky were we that the weather was lovely...
London is wonderful for people watching, it has such a massive mix of weird, individual, stylish or just plain daft people..
First up when we reached Oxford Circus was the sight of tents on the pavement..... I thought they had moved there from St Paul's.... But these were outside Niketown and the queue was for a pair of Nike Air Foamposite Galaxy trainers.... Particularly ugly if you ask me....
Further on up the street another camp was outside the Apple store.... Far more understandable, this queue was for the iPad 3 .... But you still wouldn't tempt me from my bed just to be the first with a new product....



 
We were off to see the David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy... Still had to queue but then we fast tracked by joining and it will make us go back for the Summer Exhibition and more..
The exhibition was stunning... The pieces he had created for this venue were huge and we drowned in colour.. He has a very simplistic style but in the main his work is colourful and happy.... And his paintings on an iPad are wonderful, especially when you think that he has to take in the changes in scale when the picture is enlarged... Very clever and very much worth a visit if you can get there before Easter Monday.
Our £5 each way tickets were great value especially as both of our trains were on time....
