we heart dinosaurs (part 2)

Some more snaps of my day out at the Natural History Museum. I didn't think I took that many photos, but it's just an amazing place I guess I got a bit carried away...(if you missed part 1 then go ahead and click here)

I'm a sucker for a pretty stained glass window, and this museum has some of the best I've ever seen

this is a photograph of a video installation in the museum, showing the water cycle on earth - it was so beautiful watching images of water, although I did find myself needing the toilet after a while

one day, when I have some money, I will go back to the gift shop and buy one of these mugs. Until that day, I will just stare at this photo and chuckle to myself.

these drawings by children visiting the museum made me smile. Some of them show definite promise as artists, but others were more than a little 'interpretive'!

in the Darwin Centre there were rows and rows of jars and bottles containing all manner of animal and plant specimens preserved in formaldehyde. Creepy, but so interesting.

and last, but by no means least, a narwhal, without a doubt my favourite member of the whale family
