Celebrations in London

It's been a few months since we have taken a trip into London to meet up with our boys and daughter in law. Yesterday was our DIL's graduation although she finished her nursing degree back in February and has been working since then. 

So we went in yesterday to meet up with them after the ceremony and go for lunch together. 
Our eldest son was busy in the afternoon so we met him in the morning, he took us to The Barbican area. The Barbican is Europes largest multi-arts and conference venue and the whole area is built using amazingly iconic architectural design. Our son knows all the good exhibitions to visit and took us into the one showing in the centre which is 'ContructingWorlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age. We loved this, there were great photographers featured including Bernice Abbot who's photos of 1930's USA were amazing. (Shame I wasn't allowed to photograph her photos) 

The top three photos are of The Barbican

I enjoyed this post so much, and found interesting! I have never visited most of the places you visit, and because of that I love when you share. These three photos are so beautiful! The picture of you and your son is so good! Well, actually, every one of these photos are lovely! Congratulations on the joy of looking forward to another grandchild. Thank you for sharing this post.
