I am going in reverse order - as in any good build up!!We went off to the cinema today to see a film about the Peterloo Massacre - Mike Leigh did a good job of portraying the story (and some of it was shot in my home city of Lincoln, which I instantly recognised)My only criticism is that the story was not followed up by a note about the reform that came about in English politics as a result of the massacre.
I have had some time to play and make a journal page for Erika's theme at Art Journal Journey -Vintage or Modern.
As you know I love visiting Galleries - so do Oscar and Eric.
I love overhearing snippets of conversations which prompted this page and gave me some ideas for more pages.
Here I attempted to create the style of Mark Rothko!
I love this Elena Zinski characters!!
A few years ago I saw a picture of a Ronald McDonald House in Germany - I can't remember anything else about the programme (or film...I don't know what it was)I have looked it up recently and it is in Essen.
It was built by Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
We didn't have time on our last visit to Vienna so I was determined to get to see the Hundertwasser Haus this time.
I think mostly these photos will speak for themselves, they are of the buildings in the area too.
My first view of the haus!
Oh! I can join Bluebeard and Elizabeth here with our coffees, water and a shared Kaiserschmarm (Susi, if I lived in Vienna I would be as big as this haus because I love this dish of pancake and plums!)
As you can see hubby was as fascinated with this place as much as I and I will use some of his photos if they are better shots than mine!(I have permission!!)
We ate outside but the inside was interesting
I was a little over excited!
We just had to go into the shopping area
We walked along to the Museum
No photos allowed in the exhibition area but we both took photos in the loos!!! I did make some sketches in the exhibition space.
The floors throughout were uneven throughout the building and in fact I walked around the exhibition area twice to experience it!
The shop was interesting and we bought a couple of books and some smaller items
I have been showing photos of our outings in our own beautiful country if you would like to see them - here and here
Thanks for looking, Chrisx
