This day…

29Dec10

No reason at all to be but I felt out of sorts, flat, even quite down today.

Despite this we had already arranged for friends to come over for brunch. They brought me a bunch of hydrangeas from their garden. I took quite a few photos of them, as the dining table is rarely this free of clutter and I liked the flowers, the table, the chairs.

Isabel, Carl and I then went to the National Portrait Gallery for the afternoon. Saw the Martin Schoeller exhibition ‘Close Up’ – which was good, but I’d like to see his take on a bunch of regular teenagers instead of all the photos of celebrities (I liked Frankie and some of the ‘unknowns’ as they are called). I read something there about the fact he photographs people so close that he likes to see the topography of the face revealed.

I often grab those free postcards (I have 100s), and I grabbed a couple of these large cards that are advertising NPG events – including the ‘Indecent exposure’ exhibit that start 21 January. It’s all about Annette Kellermann ‘champion lady swimmer and diver of the world’ who was a champion endurance swimmer & silent film star (sometimes as a mermaid!). Can’t wait to see. This image entranced me.

Tomorrow is another day, and hopefully a happier one.
