10 London Department Stores
Pop by 'n say hi!10 London Department Stores With Christmas just a week away, we take a quick look at 10 London department stores.  With some of them being so historic, it seems a good time to visit.  That’s not just because it is Christmas, but also because in recent years, department stores have been failing and closing.  Debenhams (featured in our list of 10 London department stores) which traces its history back to 1778 London has raised fears with poor sales figures recently.  Another favourite, House of Fraser was sold as part of a £90 million rescue deal earlier in the year. It is not just department stores, retail sales have been sliding recently with consumers tightening belts.  Their major concern seems to be growing Brexit uncertainty.  This has affected online retailers as well as traditional ones.  Rising costs and online competition are affecting UK, traditional, brick-and-mortar retailers though. The conclusion is it might be worth getting into historic department stores while you still can as their future may be uncertain.  Here is a list of 10 London department stores and what they are known for.  We have included names of nearby photography galleries as no visit to central […]
Trafalgar Square London
Pop by 'n say hi!Trafalgar Square London Trafalgar Square London sits near the top of anyone’s checklist on a sightseeing visit to London, together with Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye.  Although the square has a lot of history itself; it is not just historic nationally, it also features in photography history.  Henry Fox Talbot, the father of the negative-positive photography process took photographs of Trafalgar Square while it was being constructed in April 1844.  Fox Talbot invented the negative-positive process which was the first to allow multiple copies to be made from a single photographic image.  This was probably one the first photographs ever made. Today Trafalgar Square is a major magnet for tourists.  While you can always just take pictures around the fountains, there are some interesting features around the square.   On the square you have Nelson’s column and various plinths and statues, including the so-called Fourth Plinth.  The Fourth Plinth sat empty for years before becoming probably the most famous public art commission in the world.  Behind the Fourth Plinth is the National Gallery and on an adjacent side you will find St. Martin in the Fields church. Nelson’s Column Nelson’s Column commemorates Admiral […]
London Photography Exhibitions December 2018
Pop by 'n say hi!London Photography Exhibitions December 2018 As this is out last update before the Christmas break, first of all, before getting into this London Photography Exhibitions December 2018 post, we would like to wish all of our regular readers a restful break over the Christmas period and a joyful and prosperous 2019.  We will be back with regular weekly updates in January and there will be some other posts in the interim. To finish the year we add an exhibition currently running at the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace.  That display is the first exhibition to focus pioneering photographs by Sir Roger Fenton.  This images from the Crimean war were taken when  photography was still in its infancy.  A time hard to image now, with images ubiquitous in modern lives. As well as that exhibition there are continuing exhibitions at Atlas Gallery, Flowers Gallery and No 20 Arts.  These three displays can loosely considered to be related by the theme of our relationship with the planet and its environment.  There is more on these as well as other exhibitions below. Huxley-Parlour Gallery Renovation Be sure to check opening times before visiting galleries over the Christmas break.  Note […]
