london snaps - part 2

as always lots of interesting things were going on around london today, especially being as it is the start of the August bank holiday weekend (and the weather lived up to it's usual standards - heavy downpours and a rather dramatic thunderstorm!!) 

a bit of a musical theme along the Southbank - lots of wooden huts with musical influences from different countries ...

huge children's blocks suspended outside the Southbank Centre

i was paying particular attention to the 'graffiti' style artwork...

ignore the bin!

my new almost-favourite restaurant Wahaca (mexican market eating)

tiles from Wahaca's toilets - you really can find inspiration anywhere!

there was a rather bizarre tree opposite the National Film Theatre, made of fabric roles ... strange and quite soggy by this stage ... but still pretty!

the calm before the next thunderstorm!
