Cooling down

This water sculpture by Danish artist Jeppe Hein is making a splash on the South Bank this summer, inviting visitors to join in and become part of it. Walls of water rise and fall randomly to divide the 10m? space into a series of smaller 'rooms': changing every ten seconds, they define all possible right-angled configurations of the space. As viewers walk through the 'rooms' they must interact with the patterns of rising and falling water if they are to leave the space without getting wet. Max got really wet!

Shimmering light

Whether you want one or not it's Armageddon time. All religious fundamentalist loo-nies want you to have a front row seat.

As you can see you are not even safe while sitting on the loo.

"Superman returns but not to the skies of Beirut,
people head for cover as they hear guns shoot.
America stands by as the Middle East goes insane.
Is it a bird? Course not, it?s an Israeli warplane."

The Monument


The 311 spiral steps of The Monument.

We went up to the top of The Monument. An observation deck at the top has a great view over London. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren to mark the Great Fire of London in 1666. It is the tallest freestanding stone column in the world.

London Eye & wheel of a stolen bicycle
The front wheel is locked with a U-lock but the rest of the bicycle has been stolen. Locking the front wheel is obviously not a sufficient security measure in London.
