This Sunday we took a trip to London to catch some of the London Street Photography festival. In particular we wanted to see Vivian Maier: A Life Uncovered. Firstly though we needed a fuel boost so a quick stop at Drink, Shop & Do in Kings Cross for a brew and a slab of cheesecake.

Then onto another exhibition at the British Library. The library was designed by architect, Colin St John Wilson and completed in 1997. I am not a huge fan of the exterior of the library. It brings 90's out of town supermarket design to mind! But the interior does just about make up for the impression you get as you approach the building. A smoked glass wall houses the King's library and makes quite a statement against the cleaner white lines that play with scale and proportion.

We went home via Northcote Road for a beer and buttie before arriving home to see off our old sofa to an Ebay buyer and finally getting our new(old) one into the living room from the bedroom. Mabel the cat was less impressed when we told her she wasn't allowed on it and spent the evening with her back to us, occasionally turning round to glare. Oh dear.

In fact I have just turned round now to find her lounging on it. The swine!
