London’s museums are some of the best. There is no entrance fee, but donations are suggested. What a treasury for the eye to behold! These images are from the National Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery and the Tate Modern, places I visited after everyone else had gone. Here are few images I got before I learned no photography was allowed.

The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 was perfect for these low lighting conditions. Unfortunately some of these aren't as sharp as I would have liked them to be, but there wasn't an opportunity to reshoot them. They were all done handheld, many with very low shutter speeds :redface:

This is a view of Room 36 at the National Gallery. The architecture is as impressive as the art work.

School children were here in droves, some a young as six. They looked so cute in their uniforms. I listened to one presenter explain to a group of students and was amazed at how cleverly she involved the students. What a great learning opportunity these kids have.

The Tate Modern, by comparison, wasn’t nearly as interesting.

Thanks, Michael. I thought it would be fun to show some of the great treasures of England, many of which you can only see by being there. The great painters and architects of the past can teach us a lot about light, color and composition.
