Learning This Whole Photography Thingy!!

 

I went to the theatre last night and saw a really brillant play from Palestine, I Am Yusuf And This Is My Brother, by Amir Nizar Zuabi. On my way to the Young Vic, no it is not a pub, I saw something unusual. I believe it is supposed to be some form of street art or someone trying to raise awareness about protecting the forest. Either way, it caught my attention and I promised myself, I would take pictures of it on my way back. This was the end product. I cannot remember the last time I was this giddy about trees but it was good to laugh. I think my baby who went with me to the theatre was surprised to see another side of me. Even I was surprised at myself.

They had all these trees standing in one place with some nice wooden frames, can’t remember the word for it now but they served their purpose and gave the assemble some character. It was really a site to behold. I was impressed with the way they layed it out. I think I’m getting better, what do you think?

Getting Better At It

These are some of the frames around the trees, they looked reall good on the eyes…people were looking at me when I went crazy around the them

A Better View Of The Old Vic

The Old Vic…I have never been inside but one day, soon to come… That’s the title of the current play showing there. It must be good because so many people came out of that place at the same time:-)
