   Ok then. Went to the station and yes Oldboy I can get there and back for £58.00. First train I can use gets me into the big place at 11.30ish. So I'll be there early afternoon on Tuesday if anyones interested.

If you see a decrepit old bloke with a camera around his neck looking bewildered and lost at about 1.30ish, it won't be me, I'll be the bloke next to him looking even more decrepit and bewildered. ;)

Look forward to it. :tup:

  Hope to see you then. Talking of bewilderd wanderings, on the rare occasion that i get to London, I find myselfwandering around like the bloke from the "Crocodile Dundee" films.

Oh I dunno "He's got a knife" CD "That's not a knife this is a knife" was a pretty good line imo....(and The Paul Hogan show was pretty funny as well back in the day when it aired)

Went yesterday and enjoyed the McCullin exhibition immensely, although there were some of his more iconic images on display, his later work doesn't quite have the punch that grabs you that his 'conflict' pictures do. Still I suppose we all mellow with age.

It was my first visit to the Tate and I have to say it definitely will not be my last now that I've 'discovered' it. A wonderful display of art through the ages of all genres and no restrictions on photography apart from those exhibitions that are charged for.

Apparently it can be a bit of a trek to get there! ;)

  Indeed. Great venue for exhibitions. (And free coffee. :knuppel2:)
  First time Iv'e seen Don McCullin's pics "On the wall". Most I was very familiar with and a few less so. My preference is for his northen England sets and his more recent landscapes, where, it appears to me, he's still "At War".
  It goes without saying that some of his conflict pics are some of the best of their kind (Nearly said genre. :-[) but I do feel that with some the impact comes from the conflict rather than the image.

 The walk from the station to the Tate was but a warm up for the afternoons shenanegans.
