IWM to the Tower meetup

A couple of weeks ago I went on a photography meetup with the Hampshire Photography Friends meetup group.  First we went to the Imperial War Museum to have a good look around.  I haven't been there for years and really has been updated.
There was lots to see but I particular liked the family at war. 

We then walked up to the Tower of London to see the poppies, but having taken many pictures of the poppies I didn't take any up there.  

We then went our Tower Bridge and walked along the river back to London Bridge.

Another competition prize

I had an email this week informing me that I had won a competition prize.   The prize was to attend an author event hosted by Clare Balding.  She was talking to Paul Merton and Danny Baker about their new autobiographies.  In addition I should also receive a copy of their books.  
The event took place at Cadogan Hall near Sloane Square and it was a really interesting and hilarious afternoon listening to all the celebs on stage.
And the books have now arrived.
